Impruneta is a medieval town located in the Chianti area,13km south of the city of Florence reachable in 20 minutes by car with a scenic drive.
Florence train station SMN is at 16km and Florence Airport is at 21km (1km= 0,62 miles).
The Villa is located less than 1 km from the town's main square and from shops and amenities.
Car is not necessary if you wish to visit Florence. There is a very convenient and direct bus route from Impruneta to the center of Florence.
Main bus stop is in town (900 meters from our gate - a little more than half a mile - 10/12 minutes walk) and there also is a secondary bus stop in front of our entrance gate.
The bus ride from the terminus in Impruneta to the terminus in Florence (train station SMN) is 40 minutes long. If you want to visit the city center you can also choose to drop off at the ancient southern gate to enter Florence center. It is much closer to Pitti Palace, Boboli Gardens and Ponte Vecchio and total time on the bus to reach it is 30 minutes.
Not all buses stop at our entrance gate, some of them end the ride at the main bus stop in Impruneta, 900 meters from our gate.
If you prefer not to walk, you can ask us to give you a ride into town by car (we will do it with pleasure anytime) or you can check on the timetable and choose to take one of the buses that arrive at the gate. You will have less choice, but there still is an ample variety of possibilities.
Only on Sundays it is necessary to walk to reach the bus stop because buses do not arrive at our gate on Sundays and public holidays.
We are always available to give you a ride to the bus stop in town if needed, or to come and pick you up there on the way back. We just need to know you need the service. A text message will be perfect.
From Monday to Saturday buses run on average every 30-40 minutes and the last ride in the evening arrives in Impruneta around 8.50 pm. On Sundays and public holidays there are very few rides, but still 2 in the morning to leave and 3 in the afternoon to come back at reasonable hours.
Buses are perfect for visiting Florence during the day and return at dinner time and we will be happy to provide all the necessary information and timetables.
We tried to give as many info as possible about buses because it might an important method of transport for you, but we might have forgotten something.
If you need any further detail about buses rides, stops and timetable, please send us a message and we will answer you with pleasure.
