HWGH: Florence

We are hoping to do a series of posts for our destinations, sharing a bit more in depth about how we used points and miles to get here. Since Rick is the expert in all things points related, he'll be the one explaining how all of this works! Enjoy!

Casperia to Florence was an easy-ish ride on the local train service and Italo Rail (though we would recommend booking the tickets on Italo in advance to save $$).  Florence was a must-see on our list this summer and we wanted to stay with locals rather than another luxurious hotel.  On Airbnb we found a cheap apartment that was centrally located for $62.00 a night ($138.00 total after service fees).  Once again, we wrote this off on our Barclay Arrival card for 13,800 points (12,420 after the 10 percent back).  



So for 8 nights in Italy, 4 in Airbnb (all written off), 2 in Hilton using points, and 2 in a local Bed and Breakfast using cash.   

Phew! That's a lot of math! But, it hopefully gives you a bit of insight into our process and how we figured out this leg of our trip!
