Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the
majority of the people arriving in Florence, which
might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists
come across the constant hustle and bustle of the
station before exiting, taking a few steps and
stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It
is impossible not to admire the the square, housing
one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The

A reservation is always recommended, since the restaurant is normally full at lunch and dinner time. Still, the friendly staff also always try to accommodate one or two persons. In case you know your way in Florence, you can... More
