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

is impossible not to admire the the square, housing
one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The
