How to reach Riva Lofts

Riva Lofts is situated along the Arno “rive gauche”, just opposite the historic Parco delle Cascine, which is reached by a short walk through a tranquil public garden along the banks. It is 2km from the centre, reachable in 10mn by taxi; by a nice promenade along the river (20/30 minutes); by bike (free for our guests) in 10 minutes; or by the new Tramway (stop Paolo Uccello or Sansovino, 200mt far from the hotel). Rides each 5 minutes from the early morning to midnight, to the main railstation Santa Maria Novella (tickets available at each stop or at the hotel).

Coming from the motorway A1, exit at Firenze Scandicci and take the SGC Fi-Pi-Li in the direction of Florence, continue to the first roundabout, take the third exit onto Via Libero Andreotti (follow signs to Isolotto), continue straight on as long as possible. Once you reach the traffic light at the river turn right and continue for about a mile, you will find Riva Lofts on your left.

Riva Lofts is directly connected to the Florence Peretola Airport: take the new T2 TRAM at the Peretola Airport direction Unità and stop at Alamanni/Stazione S.M.N. Take the new T1 TRAM direction Villa Costanza and stop at Paolo Uccello or Sansovino 200mt far from the hotel
