One of the many advantages of staying with the Locande degli Artisti group of hotels and inHotel Marine Florence is the convenient central location in the centre of Florence. Situated just a short walking distance from both the Santa Maria Novella train station and the Fortezza da Basso Exhibition Centre this equates to a simple 5 minutes’ walk to fairs, exhibitions, transport to the airport and transport around the city.
That said, you probably won’t need transportation around the city
as Hotel Marine’s great location means that guests are actually within walking distance of many of the main tourist attractions. For instance, guests can walk to both the Basilica of Santa Maria Novella and the Palazzo Medici Riccardi in just 5-10 minutes whereas the city’s cathedral (or ‘Duomo’ as it’s known locally) of St John and the bell tower of Giotto is only around 15 minutes away by foot.
A similar distance away to the east is also the beautiful Botanical Gardens and just a little closer one can find the Galleria d’Accademia with its fascinating art works and historic pieces. Further to the south however, in a mere 15-20 minutes by foot, guests can reach the famous Piazza dellaRepubblica, the Piazza dellaSignoria, Palazzo Vecchio and Ponte Vecchio.
