Your haven by the Ponte Vecchio

Ponte Vecchio Suites & Spa is in an amazing location - right in the middle of Florence’s historic center, only 50 meters from the Ponte Vecchio.

Placed on a quiet street in the pedestrian-only area parallel to the Arno River, you’re just steps away from the best boutiques, jewelers, and art galleries.

A short walk will bring you to any number of Florence’s main museums and sights: stroll a few hundred meters to the Palazzo Pitti and Boboli Garden, or allow yourself just a few minutes to get to the Uffizi Gallery, Piazza Signoria, the Duomo or the designer stores along Via de’ Tornabuoni.

By Car

Arriving from the Motorway A1 exit at FIRENZE SUD (at km.300.9). Continue through the junction, following VIA MARCO POLO and you will head towards the city and across the river Arno. Just after crossing the river turn left and continue along with the river on your left, this is LUNGARNO ALDO MORO, which becomes LUNGARNO COLOMBO and then LUNGARNO DEL TEMPIO. At the last traffic lights, you have to turn right onto VIA GIOVANNI AMENDOLA. Keep carefully to the left and at the next lights turn left onto VIA DUCA DEGLI ABRUZZI. Stay carefully to the left and swing onto VIALE DELLA GIOVANE ITALIA, heading back towards the river. Stay in the left lane and continue along LUNGARNO PECORI GIRALDI and swing right onto the bridge, PONTE SAN NICCOLÒ, crossing the river. At the end of the bridge turn right onto LUNGARNO CELLINI, go past the traffic cameras and continue straight along LUNGARNO CELLINI, which becomes LUNGARNO SERRISTORI and then, passing the next bridge, past the traffic cameras, onto LUNGARNO TORRIGIANI  (***). Pass the traffic cameras on VIA DE’ BARDI and continue straight into via de’ Barbadori. Immediately take the next street on your right, via De’ Belfredelli and you have arrived at Ponte Vecchio Suites & Spa. We recommend you park in the “Lungarno” parking garage which is on the right and 10 meters from us.

 (***) From June 2016, road works are taking place, diverting the usual way to reach the hotel. Here below you can find complete directions to be followed: once you reach the end of LUNGARNO SERRISTORI, turn right on PONTE ALLE GRAZIE and then left in LUNGARNO GENERALE DIAZ, proceeding till the second bridge. Turn left on PONTE SANTA TRINITA. At the end of the bridge, proceed straight in PIAZZA FRESCOBALDI and, at the traffic light, turn left in BORGO SAN JACOPO. We suggest you to park at the GARAGE LUNGARNO, in the street in front of us, VIA DE’ BELFREDELLI.

Limited Traffic Zone (ZTL)

As in many Italian city centers, the historic center of Florence is closed off to most traffic to keep the streets free for pedestrians. There is some traffic but only of local residents and others with special permits. The whole area is marked as a zone of limited traffic (known as the ZTL, “zona a traffico limitato”).

As the Ponte Vecchio Suites & Spa is in the historic heart of Florence it lies inside this zone.

Entry by car into the ZTL is tracked by special cameras. You can travel with your own car only with permission and this involves communicating with the hotel your license plate number and time of arrival.

Every time you want to drive into the zone you must tell hotel reception in advance your license number and the time you will be driving in. If our staff has not been informed, and are therefore unable to communicate in time to the proper authorities, your entry to the ZTL will be considered unauthorized and you will be sanctioned appropriately.
