Our office (open from Monday to Sunday from 9 a.m. to 7.30 p.m.) is situated in Via dei Cimatori 16/R , a perpendicular street of Via Calzaiuoli – one of the two most prestigious streets in Florence.

Florence is a small city and you can easily visit the center and surroundings by foot. When the weather is not too hot, it is possible to rent a bicycle for a trip up to Piazzale Michelangelo to enjoy the beautiful views of the city. If you intend to leave the historical city center, be aware of car drivers!

You will find the building’s entrance  in Via dei Cimatori 16/R, nestled among the bakeries, trattorias, restaurants, small shops, banks, pharmacies, and post office that characterize this neighborhood.

From here, you can easily reach traditional markets such as San Lorenzo and Sant’Ambrogio, where you can buy food and traditional Florentine wares. All the main museums, such as the Uffizi and Accademia Galleries, Pitti Palace or the Bargello Museum are within easy walking distance. Our apartments are all within short walking distance.

 

How to reach us

By train/On foot

Trains arriving from Venice, Bologna, Rome, Milan, and Pisa will take you directly to Santa Maria Novella train station. From here, you can take a taxi if you have heavy luggage, or reach us by foot if you prefer. If you do decide to walk, we’re located just 10-12 minutes distance from the station, a wonderful walk through amazing streets and squares: from the station, take Via dè Cerretani until you arrive in Piazza San Giovanni (the square of the Cathedral, also known as Piazza del Duomo).
Turn right and enter in Via Calzaiuoli, in the direction of Piazza della Signoria. The fifth street on your left is Via dei Cimatori. There is also an Electric bus C2 leaving from Piazza dell’Unità, the square diagonally across the street from Santa Maria Novella station (with a large obelisk in the center), which will bring you to Via della Condotta 16 blue. From there, you can go to via dei Calzaiuoli and the first on your right going towards the Dome is via dei Cimatori.
