How to reach the Dependance Machiavelli
Arriving at the station of Santa Maria Novella the apartment can be reached in two ways::
- By taxi: As you exit the station you will find the taxi rank. The fare is around 8 Euros. Taxis are almost always present and available; in the unlikely event they are not, you can request one using the following numbers: 055 4242 or 055 4390
- On foot (5 minutes) Once off the train, leave the station by taking the exit near platform 6. Go down the stairs, cross the track of the tramway using the traffic light and take Via Santa Caterina da Siena. After about 100 meters down the road, at the intersection with Via della Scala go straight in Via Dell'Albero (a small road barely wide enough for a car) which ends in Via Maso Finiguerra. Follow it for about 100 meters more until you reach the intersection with Borgo Ognissanti. Turn left, the Dependance Machiavelli is at number 68.
- Take a taxi at the airport (costs about 25 Euros)
- Or take the shuttle bus to the station of Santa Maria Novella (ticket 6 Euros per person) and then follow the directions outlined above.
Despite being in the city center, the Dependance Machiavelli is located on the border of the ZTL and therefore easily accessible by car. Once you download the luggage for those who wish to park a car, we have negotiated a daily rate of Euros 24 with a garage open every day from 06:00 am to 2:00 am at night in Borgo Ognissanti, just two minutes walking from the apartment.
Surroundings and tips
Borgo Ognissanti, which owes its name to the Church of All Saints, is a street full of shops and great restaurants (Italian and international), and provides a variety of large and small activities designed to satisfy every need.
While Florence is a very quiet town, the presence of the police station makes Borgo Ognissanti a very safe area both day and night.
Ideal for daily shopping, a Conad supermarket is right next to the apartment building.
For the sweet tooth I recommend the bakery Becagli (also next to the apartment) where you will find every morning fresh bread, cakes, and great ideas for breakfast. In addition, across the street is the bar Blanco, a local very nice place for breakfast or a quick lunch.
Going to Piazza Goldoni (shortly beyond the police station) I recommend the San Carlo, a very casual bar but also somewhere to enjoy drinks at the end of the evening (their drinks are excellent).
Tired of so much culture? No problem! On Via Maso Finiguerra is the multiplex cinemas Marconi, always full of premieres. For those who want to enjoy a bit of pampering, I recommend the spa Javasun.
Finally, but of primary importance, between Borgo Ognissanti and Maso Finiguerra are located all the most well known car rental agencies (Avis, Hertz, Europecar, Maggiore, etc.) that will allow you to rent a car for day trips or to continue your journey your next destination.
My name is Pierpaolo and for the past fifteen years I have dedicated myself to welcoming tourists to our beautiful Florence. I always thought that the money spent in travel is well spent, and the feelings that pervade you when you know new places and people are hard to explain. Although by now we all live in a "global world" I still believe that essential human contact and make people feel at ease. That's why I decided to create this lovely apartment with the goal of not only welcoming guests but allowing them to experience true and proper "Florentine" culture.
Although this is an apartment and does not have a true concierge service, it will still be my pleasure to take care of you, helping you to plan your stay, from your arrival, to booking individual visits or tours to museums in Florence, advising about local restaurants, and organizing excursions to nearby cities (Siena, San Gimignano, Pisa, and Cinque Terre), as well as the beauties of Tuscany and Chianti with its hills and its wines known throughout the world.
