We all know just how tiring it is visiting cities, their museums and their monuments. Walking everywhere for the best part of the day can sometimes stop you from making the most of your visit. This is why we believe the location of your hotel is very important.
Hotel Perseo is located in the very heart of the historical centre, via Cerretani n. 1 black (red numbers are shop numbers). The Hotel location gives you the opportunity to visit Florence by foot within minutes without having to use any form of transport.
In the heart of Florence
How to get to the hotel
By train and then on foot:
The main train station in Florence is Santa Maria Novella (your ticket reads Firenze S.M.N.). Once you get to the end of the train platform, turn left.. At the exit to the train station you will see on your right the escalator/stairs that lead you to the under passage. Take them and keep walking straight ahead to the end. Once you come up, you are on via Panzani, next to the Church of Santa Maria Novella. Continue straight ahead for almost 100 metres. The street then turns to the left, you are now on via Cerretani and you can also see the Duomo. We are located at n. 1 black ( the red numbers are for shops). As you walk toward the Duomo keep looking to your right, our entrance is between two stores. It is the only building entrance on your right about 50 metres before arriving at Piazza Duomo.
Once you have left the autostrada/highway you must follow the indication for “Centro” or “ Viali di Circonvallazione” (this is the ring road that surrounds the historical centre). One you are here follow the indication for “Stazione”, the train station. You enter the historical centre from via Santa Caterina d’Alessandria, this then turns into via Nazionale, then Largo Alinari. Once through the traffic lights you will need to turn left around the round about and enter Piazza dell’Unità d’Italia, with a obelisk in the centre. You are now inside the restricted traffic zone, (the garage will register your number plate with the traffic department). Take the first street on your right, via del Melarancio. At the end, on the left, there is a small crowded Piazza, enter and turn right into via de Conti. Continue straight ahead until you reach the end. You will be now on via Cerretani, turn right, stop and park. Come to reception so we can organize the garage.
The taxi rank is at the exit of the arrivals lounge, taxi rates are flat rates. The shuttle bus operates every half hour. Check the airport website for further details: www.aeroporto.firenze.it. If you require a private driver transfer, please contact us so we can send you a quote.
