Reach it across the street (in front of you there’s a tourist-office) by going left along the walls of
the Church to get into Via degli Avelli.
You will arrive in Piazza Santa Maria Novella, cross to the arcade and see in front of you the New Museum of 900.
Turn right to Via della SCALA and the first street you cross is VIA DEL PORCELLANA , we are at number 14 black.

We just suggested a few places to park close to our location, but there are several others just nearby.
