Lying on the hillside of Fiesole, the Pensione is located 7 km (4 miles) from the center of Florence and 1 km (0,6 miles) from Fiesole: a unique position which provides a breathtaking view over the whole city of Florence. Free parking is available for guests and visitors.
If you arrive in Florence by car from the ring roads follow the blue signs for Fiesole. Continue through a village called San Domenico; after about 1 km, on your right-hand side, you will see our sign. If you use GPS, in order to avoid one-way streets not marked by Google, we recommend that you first head to Piazza Edison and continue from there towards Fiesole and our address: via Benedetto da Maiano, 4, Fiesole.
If you have heavy luggage, the easiest and fastest way to get to Pensione Bencistà from the airport or from the Santa Maria Novella train station is to take a taxi. The ride from Peretola airport should cost around €40; from Santa Maria Novella around €30. We can organize private transfers on request.
From Santa Maria Novella train station take bus No. 7 and get off at the Regresso stop. Walk back, keeping left, for about 5 minutes until you reach our gate. Go down the avenue of cypress trees to the villa.
Bus No. 7 runs every 15/20 minutes, from 6:00 am to midnight.
