Palazzo Alfieri is located in the heart of the unforgettable city of Florence, universally considered an open-air museum and one of the most valuable UNESCO World Heritage sites. Directly facing the romantic, calm Arno River, the Palazzo has a great historical value, having been the principal residence of Luigi Bonaparte King of Holland and the florentine retreat of many famous Italian artists, leaders and writers, such as the great Vittorio Alfieri that gave its name to our Collezione.
Palazzo Alfieri is just ten minutes far from Santa Maria Novella train station.
Once outside of the station you can catch a taxi or choose to move by walk. If you don't mind walking, just cross the street to get to Piazza Santa Maria Novella and then take Via de' Fossi. When you reach Piazza Goldoni, turning left along the river, you will arrive at Lungarno Corsini. Our entrance is located at number 2, right before the bridge on the left.
