How to reach us

By train

Stop at Florence Central Station, Santa Maria Novella. The Museum can be reached on foot in about 20 minutes.

On foot from Santa Maria Novella Station

Take via Panzani and walk through via Cerretani up to Piazza Duomo. When you are in front of the cathedral, take Via dei Calzaioli - the first street on the right - and walk up to Piazza della Signoria. Cross the yard of the Uffizi Gallery and, once you reach the Arno river, turn left. The Museo Galileo faces the river, beside the Uffizi Gallery. Its main entrance is in Piazza dei Giudici.

By bus from Santa Maria Novella Station

Take bus C1 at the stop "Stazione via Panzani" - bound for "Diaz" - and get off at "Galleria degli Uffizi", Piazza del Grano. The Museo Galileo faces the river Arno. It is easy to locate thanks to the museum’s banner on the Palazzo Castellani side wall.

By car

Get off the A1 motorway at "Firenze Sud" exit. The city centre of Florence is a restricted traffic zone, thus we suggest you to leave your car in the parking lot near the Santa Maria Novella train station and to proceed by bus or on foot.

By plane
