We will be arriving by train from cinque terre to Florence, which train station would be easiest to arrive into and how would you suggest getting from the train station to hotel silla? thank you!
Florence's main station is Santa Maria Novella. There are taxis just outside the front of the station (turn left after leaving the platforms), and most are electric or hybrid!
Cost for a trip to the Silla Hotel was about 12 Euros if my memory is correct.
Hotel Silla is great - have a good time!
We walked from the main railroad (SMN) station to Hotel Silla. It was a great way to get to understand the layout of Florence, a walking city. We had backpacks instead of rolling suitcases, which could have been more problematic across the cobblestone streets and piazzas.
There is also a local bus from outside the station to just around the corner from Hotel Silla which are cheaper than taxis. The C1 and the number 23 I think were the numbers- it should tell you on Google. Enjoy your stay!
