If arriving from the Pisa airport, you will find a shuttle bus just outside the exit. It can take you directly to Florence with stops near the Santa Maria Novella Central Station.

Please note that entrance to our private garage inside the Hotel may be difficult for large SUVs and particularly long vehicles, though the access corridor has enough space for a van to pass.

We also warn visitors to carefully follow our driving instructions to reach us, as much of central Florence is subject to traffic restrictions, with heavy penalties for those who violate these limitations. The route we have indicated allows you to reach the hotel without going through any restricted areas with traffic cameras.
