Where We Are
Palazzo Tolomei is located right in the heart of the historical center of Florence, in the midst of churches, museums, and extraordinary monuments. The artistic highlights of the city are just a few steps away: Michelangelo's David, the Duomo, the Ponte Vecchio, the Uffizi Gallery and Santa Croce.
The Palazzo is also in the heart of the shopping district, a symbol of taste and Italian creativity, from the well known stylists to the emerging young designers. The artisan's workshops are also famous, from goldsmiths to antiques, which display the marvels of Italian taste in their windows.
The center of Florence is limited to traffic, or a pedestrian area. If you use a garage, however, you can pass the telematic boundaries in your car since the Garage will then remove the charges from your licence plate, allowing you to arrive directly at the front door of PalazzoTolomei. We have an agreement with a nearby garage for the cost of 30 to 35 Euros maximum per night. The price varies according to the size of the car. An employee of the garage will pick up your car at the main entrance of the Palazzo and bring it back whenever needed.

The train station of Santa Maria Novella is approximately 700 meters walking from Palazzo Tolomei.

At the Florence airport "Amerigo Vespucci" the taxi station is just outside of the main exit. The airport also provides a shuttle bus which will take you to the train station of Santa Maria Novella. From the station, you could take a taxi to Palazzo Tolomei. We suggest taking the taxi directly from the airport since the total cost of the two possibilities is the same.
Upon request, we can organize a private transfer for you.
