You've read it all. Donatello is great, the B&B is gorgeous, and the location near the train station (with no train noise) is the best. Even though we were later arriving than we had planned, Donatello greeted us cheerily on the street outside his place....More
When we arrived, we found Donatello waiting for us and gave us a warm welcome. There are about 50 steps to arrive up at the B&B and he offered to carry all the luggage upstairs himself. We found a very lovely and cosy B&B, designed...More

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 station before exiting, taking a few steps and stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella.

The huge Parco Delle Cascine provides a solution to the need for a green area as well as a historic welcome in the form of a bronze statue of King Vittorio Emanuele II riding a horse.
