    How to get there
    Airport: Pisa and Florence (1 hour): 43.5 mi
    Railway: Pracchia: 6.2 mi
    Ferry: Livorno: 55.9 mi
    From Florence take the motorway A11 to Pisa and exit at Pistoia. From there follow the signs for Abetone and after 23 km you get to San Marcello Pistoiese. Florence is about 50 minute drive from San Marcello.
    San Marcello is about 1.5 hours drive from Pisa airport, which has extensive budget airline connections to the UK and car hire. We are also 1 hour drive from Florence airport and 1h45 from Bologna airport. However, the efficiency of public transport also makes it possible to stay at the farmhouse without a car although a car is recommended; there are excellent train links from Pisa airport, Florence, Lucca to Pistoia and from Bologna to Pracchia. Regular buses from Pistoia and Pracchia come to San Marcello.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 weeks ago for a stay in August 2014

Il Metato is a lovely, inexpensive place to stay in the beautiful Tuscan countryside. The rooms are basic and the sitting room is small and a little uncomfortable for the four of us adults who went this August 2014. It wasn't really warm enough for the outside for most of the week we had and also Il Metato's outside areas...
