Riva Lofts is located in Via Baccio Bandinelli and overlooks the “rive gauche” of the Arno, directly opposite the historical “Parco delle Cascine”, to which it is connected by a peaceful public garden that flanks the riverbank. It is 2 km from the city centre and can be reached in about 10 minutes by taxi, by taking a beautiful walk (20/30 minutes), or with a vintage bike offered to guests by the hotel (10 minutes).
Just 200 metres away from our complex, guests will find the Paolo Uccello stop of the Tramvia T1 line, from where they can easily reach the historical city centre in just a few minutes (stop: Santa Maria Novella) or even the airport.
The Tramvia is operational from 5 am until midnight and passes very frequently, every 5/10 minutes depending on the time.
