Strategically located near the city centre, the Campo di Marte neighbourhood spreads out around the train station of the same name, the city’s second major terminus. Welcoming and neatly laid out, this neighbourhood dates back to the early 19th century, when the foundations were laid for its use as a training area for the Tuscan army, which led to its subsequent development as the city’s sporting core. Characterised by elegant leafy streets and charming residential buildings, this neighbourhood has lots of lively shops and businesses and is very well connected to the historic city centre by several bus routes.
It is the ideal neighbourhood for travellers keen to avoid the hustle and bustle of the busier parts in the centre but who still want to have all the city’s major tourist attractions within easy reach.
For those with a car, Campo di Marte is ideal: parking is easy and it is close to the beautiful hills around the city.
