Casa di Barbano is situated in the Historic Center of Florence, within walking distance from the central train station of Santa Maria Novella (or SMN).
We are also very close to the most important monuments and museums like the Accademia museum and the Duomo. In addition, we are just a few steps from the Fortezza da Basso, an international exposition center, and the Palazzo del Congressi, an important Congress Center.
We are situated on a calm and quiet street, away from the frenetic traffic of the city.
