San Niccolò lies on the other side of the River Arno, turning left from the Old Bridge. Just 200 meters ahead lies the Pitti Palace, the residence of the Medici family. If you are near the Santa Maria Novella station, take the bus number 23 to reach San Niccolò. It is a pleasant walk along the river and is the closest root to reach Piazzale Michelangelo on foot.
San Niccolo is a very interesting district of Florence with a lot of historical points of interest as well as aperitifs spots and original shops with a mix of old artisan botteghe, is for sure a walk you can’t miss while visiting Florence.
Zoe, Chioschino, Jaragua, Joyce and Rifrullo are some of the cool joints in this area. This area is almost completely under the ZTL zone, that means only those having the permission to enter the center can pass with their vehicles.
