From the central train station Firenze Santa Maria Novella.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Beware of the Hostel/Hotel sellers at the train station! You might be approached by people attempting to direct you to a different location. We do not have staff working at the train station. Please procede with caution and be alert as these individuals might be hustlers or thieves.

FURTHER NOTE: In Florence you will see different street numbers. Red numbers are designated for commercial establishments. Please note that Red numbers are arranged exclusively according to other Red numbers and so are Black ones.

We are located less than 15 minutes from the train station and can be easily found walking toward the Duomo Cathedral.

Leave the train station through the left exit where you will see various bus stops.

Cross to the other side of the street (Via degli Avelli) where you will see a fast food restaurant on your left. Continue walking straight.

Walk past Piazza dell'Unità where you will see Hotel Baglioni. Keep on walking down Via Panzani, which will slightly turn left and turn into Via Cerretani.

As you reach Piazza San Giovanni, the square where the Duomo is located, keep on the left side of the square. Upon reaching the square Via Ricasoli will be the 3rd street on the left (after Borgo San Lorenzo and Via Martelli).

Walk down Via Ricasoli for two blocks. We are located at number 31 BLACK just before the intersection of Via Ricasoli and Via Degli Alfani.

Ring the second buzzer pull-bell from the top, inscribed David Pull. Take the lift and come up to third floor. If you get lost call us !!
