HOW TO REACH THE CONGRESS VENUE

By car

If you arrive in Florence by car, you can park in the Hotel’s approved garage.

  • From Rome
    Take the Firenze Sud exit off the motorway and head towards the centre. At the traffic light at the end of Lungarno del Tempio, head towards Piazza Beccaria, then along Viale Antonio Gramsci and Viale Giacomo Matteotti until you reach Piazza della Libertà. Take Via Lorenzo il Magnifico and, at the first traffic light, turn left onto Via Poliziano. Go straight down Via Santa Caterina to Santa Maria Novella station, passing through Piazza Indipendenza. After about two minutes, you will arrive in Piazza dell’Unità Italiana, where you will find the Grand Hotel Baglioni. Please contact the hotel concierge to inform them of your arrival.
  • From Milan
    Take the Firenze Nord exit off the motorway and head towards the centre. Once you get to the end of Viale Francesco Redi, turn right and then left into Via Guido Monaco. Drive all the way to the end, then turn left onto Via Fratelli Rosselli. After the railway underpass, follow the ring road (marked ‘Circonvallazione’), going around the Fortezza da Basso and taking Viale Spartaco Lavagnini. At the first traffic light, turn right into Via Santa Caterina and continue until you reach the station, passing through Piazza Indipendenza: after about two minutes, you will arrive in Piazza dell’Unità Italiana, where you will find the Grand Hotel Baglioni. Please contact the hotel concierge to inform them of your arrival.
