About the neighborhood
The Santa Maria Novella neighbourhood, where Via della Scala represents the main road, is one of the oldest in Florence: the ancient road takes its name from the ex-hospital of Santa Maria della Scala, founded in 1313. The location is very good for its closeness to the historical center, to the “Lungarni” that can be easily reached by foot, to the streets of Tornabuoni renowned for its luxury shopping with many top stores lining the streets, to the Fortezza da Basso wich is the main congress and exhibition center of Florence and to “Mercato Centrale di San Lorenzo” where you will be able to find everithing you need for fresh food. Particular stores, artisan workshops and antiquarian shops as well as “trattorie” typical of the traditional tuscan cooking make this neighbourhood a lively place, full of life, where to spend a pleasant stay
