Introduction: I love Poste Italiane
Hello everyone. Thank you for visiting.
I love Poste Italiane dearly and it is my dream to someday see with my own eyes “all” post offices of over 12500 throughout Italy. In Japan, this kind of hobby has some supporters, but in Italy it is not very well known. My goal is to convey the many attractions of Poste Italiane to Italians and people around the world.
In this article, we will talk about how to get to the Florence Central Post Office and its attractions.
Directions to Florence Central Post Office
Almost everyone who visits Florence goes to Duomo (Address: Piazza del Duomo, 50122 Firenze FI, Italia) in the center of Florence. Duomo is very famous because it symbolizes Florence, known as the city of flowers (one theory says that the etymology of “Florence” is related to “flowers”). The Duomo is only 550 meters from the Florence Central Post Office. You can reach it within 10 minutes on foot. Therefore, not going to the Florence Central Post Office means going all the way to Florence and going home without seeing a great treasure.
Here are the directions recommended by Google Maps.
Head west on Piazza Duomo to Via Ricasoli
Turn left onto Via Martelli
Turn right and continue on Piazza San Giovanni
Turn left onto Via Roma
Go straight to Piazza della Repubblica
Turn right into Republic Square
Turn left into Republic Square
Continue down Pellicceria Street
Destination is on the right

The charm of the Florence Central Post Office
The main reason to visit the Florence Central Post Office is the stunning beauty of the building (both inside and out). You can imagine the life of the aristocracy from the majestic building where you can feel the Renaissance atmosphere and history, and the dignity and power inside. Florence is a city influenced by the Medici family, and you’ll be able to fully enjoy the atmosphere inside the post office. This is because the post office design reflects the history, culture and atmosphere of the city (not just Florence).
Another reason to visit the Florence Central Post Office is the Postal Hobby Corner. You can even send a postcard home to commemorate your visit to Florence here. Postcards are inexpensive, not bulky, and would make a great souvenir only available in Florence.
In addition to postcards, there are many other items related to the postal hobby waiting for you.
