Monastero di Santa Marta (TOF124)

Florence Tuscany

House of the Monache Benedettine di Santa Marta

Monastero di Santa Marta has gorgeous views, a peaceful and serene environment and proximity to all the culture of Florence. This is one of the finest lodgings the city has to offer, with warm and welcoming hospitality.

Set in the northern hills of Florence, this venue has a stunning view of the city center and access to the surrounding Tuscan countryside.
 
Rated 4.3 out of 5
The views from the terrace at the monastery were stunning. My room was clean and comfortable with an en suite with shower. Breakfast was self serve and was adequate. There was a vending machine for bottles of water costing 50 cent I recommend you have some change; there was also pop and some snacks. It was lovely hearing the nuns singing each morning; you don’t see much of them but they were helpful at check in and check out and they would always greet you when passing. Once you get used to public transport, it is easy to get the bus from the top of the street into Florence and to the train station. Overall, I absolutely loved my stay. I stayed alone as a single female and felt totally safe. It was a welcome sanctuary away from all the tourist hustle and bustle. I would highly recommend Santa Marta and I would love to go back. I will definitely be using monastery stays again.

A very quiet and comfortable stay,within easy access to centre by public transport. Recommended for serious travellers or researchers.

The position of the monastery on the edge of town is lovely, giving a taste of real Italy and not just a tourist location. The nuns are very kind, we had beautiful views of the Tuscan countryside from our windows and Santa Marta is an interesting old building. Our bedroom and shower were clean and facilities adequate. We had an excellent time in Florence. It is an amazing city!

The journey from Santa Maria Novella station was easy via ATAF 4 bus. The sisters were welcoming and the room was pleasant if somewhat warm at night. The gardens were a bonus and dinner was available if pre-booked. Breakfast was traditionally Italian with good coffee, bread and pastries. I am planning a return visit.

On bus route number 4 in Florence, this was a lovely place to stay on a hill with Tuscan countryside behind and the city suburbs to the front. The ensuite bedroom was clean and the nuns were friendly.
