Address: Piazza di Santa Maria Novella, 1, 50123 Firenze Florence, Italy
Florence is a city steeped in history, and there is no finer example than the spectacular Duomo. Situated just 100 meters from the Hotel Santa Maria Novella Florence, Brunelleschi's world-famous dome crowns the enormous and decorative Santa Maria del Fiore - bigger than the Capitol building in Washington, the Pantheon in Rome and, perhaps surprisingly, St. Peters Basilica in Rome - as the cathedral sits proudly as the centrepiece of the city. Just opposite stands the Baptistery, who's intricately carved bronze doors were christened by Michelangelo himself as ''the Gates of Paradise''.
Being located in the heart of the historic centre, Hotel Santa Maria Novella Florence offers easy access to all of the city's historical landmarks. A pleasant five minute stroll brings you to the most famous of all of the city's museums, the Galleria degli Uffizi. One of the oldest and most famous art collections in the world, the Uffizi Gallery holds priceless works by Giotto, Da Vinci, Botticelli, Michelangelo, Raphael, Titian and Caravaggio to name but a few.
