In terms of accommodation in Florence, I would recommend The Florentine website which I love but is quite expensive, and Erasmusu - and the university has some good options too - it's always useful if you can speak Italian as you get locals' prices! That's what I did - and I kept an eye on lampposts in the area I wanted to live in :)

P.S. It goes without saying that living with locals helps your Italian hugely.
