The Central Station of Santa Maria Novella is only 200 metres from Hotel Alba Palace, which can easily be reached on foot in just 5 minutes.

Following the stretch of road on Via Senese with lanes for buses only, you will arrive in Ponte della Vittoria. After crossing the bridge, continue on Viale Fratelli Rosselli, after Porta al Prato, turn right on Via Alamanni. Continue in front of the train station, then turn right onto Via Santa Caterina da Siena and continue to the intersection with Via della Scala; at the traffic light, turn left: Hotel Alba Palace is located a few metres on the left.
