Florence Apartment in Oltrarno

Where we are located and how to reach us

Google map

Our Oltrarno apartment is in the historical center within the ZTL*

Despite this, it is easy to reach our apartment either by bus from the SMN train station or with your own car. If you're arriving with a car, you can temporarily park to unload and load baggage in the public (pay) parking spaces near Porta San Frediano (Viale Ariosto), which is just about 100 meters from our apartment.

* Limited traffic zone

⇢ How to get here by car

For anyone arriving from the A1 highway, exit at “Firenze Impruneta” and follow signs indicating the center of Florence. Once you've reached Porta Romana, follow the wide tree-lined boulevard (Viale Petrarca) and continue past Piazza Tasso. At the following stoplight (viale Vasco Pratolini), turn right onto Viale Ariosto. Here you can park your car (within the blue lined parking spaces, which are pay parking spaces between 8am-8pm on weekdays). Look toward Porta San Frediano: on the right side will be Via dell’Orto. Follow this street for about 100 meters until you reach n. 11 (ring doorbell marked “Bianchi-Vannini”). We recommend moving your car after you've unloaded your luggage to the “Calza Oltrarno” parking lot next to Porta Romana which offers more convenient daily and weekly rates - www.firenzeparcheggi.it

⇢ How to reach us by train

From your destination, you'll be arriving into Florence's main station “Firenze Santa Maria Novella”. Once you've arrived, exit the station on the left side and then head right toward the TAXI stand. Here you can either take a taxi (about 10 euro + luggage supplement) or bus n. 12.

⇢ How to reach us by bus

If you've decided to take the bus from Santa Maria Novella, take the ATAF bus n. 12 (the stop is next to the Taxi stand, near the bike rentals) and get off at the “Piazza Tasso” stop (about 10 min. travel time). Cross the square, take via del Leone, continue straight for about 100 meters then turn left onto via dell’Orto, continue for about 30 meters until you reach n. 11 (ring the doorbell marked as “Bianchi-Vannini”).

⇢ How to reach us if you're arriving into Florence by air

From the Amerigo Vespucci airport you can either take a taxi (cost is 15-20 euro + any baggage supplement) or take the “Vola in Bus” shuttle which takes you to Santa Maria Novella train station. From here you can take bus n. 12 (read the above instructions on how to reach our apartment by bus)
