Where We Are

The bed and breakfast is in a unique and very central location within the Center allowing our guests to reach the most popular and wonderous sites in Florence (Uffizi, Accademia, Ponte Vecchio, Palazzo Pitti) within minutes on foot. We are ten minutes walking distance from the Santa Maria Novella train station. (SMN)

From the Amerigo Vespucci Airport
We are 20 minutes from the airport. The cost of a taxi is approximately EUR 20,00 to 25,00.

"Volainbus" is a shuttle bus service connecting the airport and the Santa Maria Novella train station in approximately 25 minutes. The cost is EUR 5,50 per person. From the airport the shuttle runs every 30 minutes on the hour and half hour from 6:00 to 23:00. From the center to the airport the bus leaves from the SITA bus terminal which is located across the street from the train station. Towards the airport the bus runs from 5:30 to 23:00 on the hour and half hour.

From the Santa Maria Novella train Station
With your back to the tracks you will exit the station to the left (front) entrance. Just past the pharmacy; turn right towards the taxi stand. Beyond the taxis at the front of the station is Piazza della Stazione which is a traffic roundabout. Cross through the piazza to the other side to via Panzani. Follow via Panzani for approximately 5 minutes until you reach Piazza San Giovanni (Duomo). Once you enter the piazza, the Baptistery will be directly in front of you. Facing the Duomo, we are to the exact right of the Baptistery at Piazza San Giovanni 1.
