The location it's really good: near the train station (5 min) and close to main attractions ( 10 to 15 min). We arrived earlier then check in time but it was ok: Francesco (who stays at the house during the day) welcomed us and put our bags at storage. We did the check in but the room wasn't available yet,...

The apartment is excellently furnished. We were able to cook breakfast. The washing machine was of big help. Although there was no dryer, they provided a rack to hang our clothes. Francesco and his mom were very nice. Steep and narrow stairs but we knew that. No problem with the bags as Francesco helped with them. We were a family...

Staying in Santa Maria Novella

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the majority of the people arriving in Florence, which might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists come across the constant hustle and bustle of the station before exiting, taking a few steps and stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It is impossible not to admire the the square, housing one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The area has plenty of local spots to taste Tuscan specialties, but don’t stop in the main streets alone; the narrower side streets always ensure satisfaction. The huge Parco Delle Cascine provides a solution to the need for a green area as well as a historic welcome in the form of a bronze statue of King Vittorio Emanuele II riding a horse.
