HI Pinknose, I travelled alone to Casa Ombuto by train. Staff will meet you in Poppi at the train station and transport you to the Villa. Others attending the school had a car and on our free day we carpooled into town or Florence. For the excursions the Villa provided transportation.

Do you have much free time to sightsee and do you make suggestions what to see in the area?
You are more flexible if you have a car as you have plenty of free time to explore the area and the villa is quite remote. On checking in we supply you with a book and tips of our favorite things to visit in the area. If you would prefer to review this prior to arrival please kindly fill out the form on our website and we will send this to you.
