Novoli and Rifredi are located on the northwest half of Florence. You’ll drive by it when coming from the Amerigo Vespucci airport. Along the way you’ll most likely drive by the new “Tribunale di Firenze” or Florentine Tribunal a massive structure that houses all the Justice offices that have moved out from the city center previous location.
There is a part of the University of Florence present here that holds the whole department of Law, Political Science and Economics. Recently the area has been enriched with well-built residential areas called Parco di San Donato, a huge park as well as a massive shopping mall with 5 cinema theaters as well.
If anyone stops by I suggest to got to eat at Senza Nome. Fabulous food! The owners are south Italian and thus have some typical Calabrian recipes. Their Tiramisù and Cheese cakes are fantastic as well! If you are looking for a quick panino(sandwich), then try out La N’ticchia. The owner is very kind and funny. He has all the top quality Prosciutto, Salame, Cheese..you name it he has it. Then he always has a stock of typical products from the south as well. With just 2 euros and 50 cents you will have a big and well stuffed panino that you have never been so satisfied with until then.
