Always depending on how to get to the city, you can catch a train and have a romantic and exciting instant when you get to see Firenze S.M.N. From this moment you’re officially in Florence! The station is located in the city centre, just 10 minutes from the Duomo, and 5 minutes from the Fortezza da Basso, where the most important fairs in Florence take place. The area is cosmopolitan and versatile in terms of experiences. It’s cheerful, pretty and a bit confusing for moving around.
San Lorenzo in Florence basically means one thing: the market! In fact, the two markets. A space with open stands that loops between the Via Nazionales and the Piazza di San Lorenzo. There you can find clothes, jewelry, leather products (the pride of Florence). Open all day, every day, even though in the last few years it has changed looks (many stands disappeared), it always have been worth a walk. Among the stands, you will find the historic Central Market, with a wide range of fresh products. In the surroundings you may also find many shops, wineries, the “lampredotto” carts, and some low-priced taverns which offer typical Florentine food.
We’re in the heart of Florence! The cathedral area is the most visited place and crowded with tourists. Imposing, sometimes chaotic, a shopping and art Mecca, including the Piazza del Duomo, the elegant Via Calzaiuoli, which directs you to Piazza della Signoria and the Loggia dei Lanzi. From here you can start enjoying the Galleria degli Uffizi. For those who want to stay in the bustling centre of the city, an apartment in Florence Duomo is the best there is!
The Santa Croce neighborhood hosts one of the most beautiful piazzas in the Florence city centre- Piazza Santa Croce, with its imposing gothic basilica that has seen many changes in the history and identity of the city. From there the typical streets of Florence start spreading, as well as the stone buildings, trendy restaurants, artisan shops and new fashion stores.
Beauty is subjective, but sometimes there is objective beauty. Oltrarno is objectively beautiful and magical, an area in Florence which mixes art with incredible landscaping and impressive views. Some of its plazas, Santo Spirito for instance, seem that they are suspended-in-time, far from the touristic noise of the historic city centre. The same goes for bars and restaurants, always special and welcoming, whether they’re trendy or not. It is undoubtedly locals´ preferable area to go out at night. Oltrarno is the ideal district for accommodation in Florence.
