San Giovanni for stay- Pls advice

Ciao,

We have just booked ourselves an apartment for 5 nights in the San Giovanni neighborhood. The owners claim The space is only 5 minutes walk from the Santa Maria Novella Central Train Station. The exact address is: Via de' Vecchietti, Florence, Toscana 50123, Italy

Is this a nice locality to stay. When we visit a city, we like to explore it mostly on foot. we like to be close to the attractions/ public transport/ restaurants etc. pls suggest if this is a right locality to stay with our requirements.

Grazie Mille!

Peggy's right. And, if you're lucky, you might be staying in the very same building that the cast of Jersey Shore bunked in a couple of summers ago ...

Well, now that Snooki's become a mom ... and the Situation's re-habbed, you just never, ever know.

But to re-cap: it's a great neighborhood. You'll be in the thick of things, and at night, the noise levels should diminish considerably. (Do make sure, however, that, if you are near the Hard Rock Cafe, your apartment does not face the street.)
