Central Location

The Hotel Athenaeum enjoys a fantastic location for both business person and tourist alike. Guests who visit our 4 star hotel will discover that they are just 750 yards from the world famous Accademia Gallery – home to all manner of artistic masterpieces but perhaps most famously, Michelangelo’s David.

Guests will also be pleased to learn that they are also just 10 minutes walk from the stunning Cathedral of Florence and are also spoilt for public transport options with Santa Maria Novella Train Station also lying a similar distance away. Finally, the important Uffizi Gallery is also around a 20 minute stroll away and with the charming streets, quaint boutiques and traditional restaurants that adorn the way, what could be more pleasant than walking through the cobbled streets of Florence?!
