How to reach Us
If you use Satnav or GPS to reach us, DON'T input the Hotel’s street name, because there have been some changes to the direction of traffic flow on some streets. Instead, to reach us, you should input ‘Piazza San Felice’.
From the A1 highway, take the exit for "Firenze Impruneta". At the roundabout, follow signs towards the city centre
(taking the Via Senese
). You will pass through a little town called Galluzzo
, and after about 2.5 Km you’ll see on your right the Pasticceria Fabiani, where you will have to turn to the right (Via del Gelsomino), following directions to Piazzale Michelangelo (this is because the street ahead is reserved for buses and taxis only)
Following this street, after about 800 metres you’ll come to a set of traffic lights where you should turn left (down Viale del Poggio Imperiale
) following directions to Piazza Pitti
. At the bottom of the hill (after about another 800 metres) you will arrive at a large roundabout in Piazza di Porta Romana (ahead to your right is a large Medieval city gate, so it’s easy to recognize)
. Go through the gate and take Via Romana
, which is straight ahead. After about 600 metres you will come to a small square with a column in the middle (Piazza San Felice
Bear to the right of the column and this will bring you into Piazza Pitti
(with the large Palazzo Pitti on your right). Go to the end of the Piazza, and park your car where there is a newspaper stand on the right. The street ahead of you is Via Guicciardini
, and Hotel La Scaletta is about 70 metres ahead on the right, No. 13 black (Florence has both red and black street numbers, which are different).
You must print your booking confirmation and have it with you in the car, ready to show to the Police, because this is now a pedestrian zone
(since the 24th June 2011), and you are permitted to drive to our Hotel and park the car for a maximum of 15 minutes in order to drop off your luggage.
ONLY on your arrival at the Hotel (NOT BEFORE) you can give the license plate number of your car to the staff at reception, in order to register it for access to the city centre Limited Traffic Zone (ZTL) THIS COMMUNICATION HAS TO BE MADE WITHIN 2 HOURS.
After this period your car is not permitted in the ZTL.
The Hotel cannot be held responsible for missing or incorrect notifications.
It is therefore important for you to make sure that the proper notification has taken place by requesting a copy of the notification from the desk clerk at check-in.
If the notification is not made or is incorrect, you will be fined (up to one year after the offence) by the local police for unauthorized access to the ZTL. If this happens, we will not be able to help you because the procedures for requesting cancellation of the penalty can only be submitted to the local Prefecture by the person on whom the fine has been levied.
