I took my 3 granchildren 13,11 and 8 years to see the treasures of the Renaissance. I chose Hotel Paris in Via dei Banchi in between the station (Ste Maria Novella) and the Duomo. A really friendly hotel and all the main attractions within 15 minutes walk (including the Pitti Palace and Boboli Gardens). They loved the marble in the Medici Palace, were amazed by the David, remembered so much about the paintings in the Uffizi and loved the Vesari corridor over the Ponte Vecchio. The 13 year old climbed Giotto's Tower while the rest of us gazed at the inside of the Duomo and Ghiberti's gilded Baptistry doors. The Hotel Paris in the Via dei Banchi, a few steps from the station and two minutes walk from the Duomo was lovely. We saw so much and the children were of an age to appreciate the history and art. The weather was 24c in late October which made stops at the gelateria a must! It was a magical trip never to be forgotten.

Cool area with lots of restaurants, cafes, shops and markets. My wife and I were staying a few blocks away but came here a few times for the food.

The Via Faenza is a lively street in the city center of Firenze. Loads of restaurants, cafes, bars, etc and quite close to everything the city has to offer. Nice

Didn't realise when we booked our hotel it was in such a great location. Lots of eating places, gelato stores, close to the central market and station. Very buzzy at night and feels safe. Good direct walk to the Duomo and on to other spots in Florence.

Lively street and a great location to stay while visiting Florence. Quick walk from the train station, Mercato Centrale and the Duomo. Lined with shops, restaurants, bars, pasticerria. Stayed at an Airbnb on the fifth floor of a building and it was extremely quiet, but once down at street level bustling even in the evening. Felt very safe!

Via Faenza is not a big street, but it's quite nice, with a good number of cafes, restaurants and other assorted shops. And, reasonably closeby, are some very good sites to visit, like the Central Markets, as well as The Uffizi and Accademia Galleries and plenty others.
