Where we areLocation
Residenza Vespucci B&B, situated in the historical centre of Florence on the first floor of a historical 19th century building (with elevators).

We are also very close to the exhibition and event venue Fortezza da Basso and to Florence airport, making this a perfect choice for those also travelling to Florence on business.

How to reach us:
Arriving by train:
Santa Maria Novella station (Firenze SMN). From outside the station head to the piazza of Santa Maria Novella and follow the street via dei Fossi. As soon as you reach the river Arno turn right, into Lungarno Vespucci and we are at number 2. A pleasant short walk of only a few minutes.
Arriving by car:
If you are approaching Florence from the A1 motorway, be careful not to miss the exit for Firenze Certosa (as there are several). Follow the signs for the city centre 'centro città' and enter the city from Porta Romana onto via Romana, then via Maggio, crossing the bridge 'ponte Santa Trinita'. Once over the bridge turn left into Lungarno Corsini. At the traffic lights follow this road which becomes Lungarno Vespucci. You will find us in the fist building at number 2.
N.B. Guests driving through zones with restricted access and where cameras are present (ZTL – which stands for restricted traffic area) can drive through these areas but must reach Residenza Vespucci within 2 hours presenting their vehicle registration number which will be immediately communicated to the local Police who will cancel any fines automatically generated in the 2 hours prior.
