Amerigo Vespucci airport is just 5 km from the center of Florence. Take a taxi to the San Gallo Palace; it's about a 15-minute trip. The shuttle bus from the airport to the Santa Maria Novella train station is a convenient alternative; you can take a taxi from there and it's no more than a 10-minute trip. In addition, you can book a private transfer when you make your reservation with the reception desk.
When you arrive at the Santa Maria Novella train station, we recommend that you take a taxi or bus number 1 towards Piazza della Libertà.
Coming from the North, the recommended exit is Firenze Nord: after you exit, follow the signs for the “Centro” and “Viali di ‘Circonvallazione” and then continue on towards Fortezza da Basso and Piazza della Libertà.

Coming from the South, the recommended exit is Firenze Sud: follow the signs for the “Center” and “Viali di Circonvallazione” to Piazza della Libertà. When you reach Piazza della Libertà, turn right at the stoplight and you will find the Hotel San Gallo Palace immediately on your right.
