Santa Maria Novella

The area takes its name from the Basilica of Santa Maria Novella that overlooks the large square with the famous facade, designed by Leon Battista Alberti.

The central railway station of Florence is behind the church and it is also an important point of the movement of public transport in the city and to the cities of the district by bus and tram. 


The structures in this area are indicated for those arriving in the city without having your own transportation. The zone is particularly full of shops of all kinds and close to major tourist attractions in the center of Florence.
