Hotel David welcomes you with the charm and intimacy of a manor house surrounded by greenery in the Oltrarno neighborhood, an area well served by public transportation.
Walking along Lungarno Cellini, which takes you to Ponte Vecchio and the historic center of Florence, you can admire the magnificence of the Duomo Cathedral.
Hotel David is located at the beginning of Viale Michelangiolo , which leads to the panoramic hilltop view from the square of the same name, where you find a copy of Michelangelo's David; the church of San Miniato al Monte isn't far away from there.
We are outside the restricted area ZTL of Florence downtown and we have a private free parking for our Guests.
From Venice, Milan and Rome the best exit from highway is Florence Impruneta.
You have to follow the signs for Center and Viale MichelangioIo (AVENUE not VIA Michelagiolo). After 2 km (1.2 miles) you will find a yellow sign pointing the direction to Piazzale Michelangelo. Once you arrive at the Piazzale Michelangelo, a splendid big terrace overviewing the city, you have to continue driving downhill along the tree-lined avenue. We are at the end of the boulevard to the right side.
