    Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the
    majority of the people arriving in Florence, which

    come across the constant hustle and bustle of the
    station before exiting, taking a few steps and
    stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It
    is impossible not to admire the the square, housing
    one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The
