2. From Pisa airport
Catch a train directly from the airport (for times see www.trenitalia.com ) or, exiting the airport building from the door opposite the arrivals gate (i.e. straight in front of you as you leave the luggage-collection and customs area) catch the local bus to Pisa railway station (Pisa Centrale) and then take a train for Florence (Firenze Santa Maria Novella). Bus tickets can be bought from the shop selling newspapers and cigarettes (identifiable by the T sign) near the departure lounge or directly from the bus driver.

3. From Firenze SMN railway station
Either catch a taxi, walk or catch a bus.
Directions for walking- with your back to the train tracks turn left out of the station. Cross the two parallel roads and then turn right. Turn left at the corner (Largo Alinari which becomes Via Nazionale). Turn right into Via Guelfa at the first set of traffic lights you come to (usually either flashing yellow or turned off) and then the second street on your left is Via S. Reparata. Cross over Via XXVII Aprile and Gianna's B & B is at number 69 on the left-hand side.
Taxi-rank � turn right past the chemist's inside the station concourse.
Bus - take a 1, 6, 14, 17 or a 23. To reach the bus stop turn left out of the station with your back to the train tracks and cross over the internal and external road. The bus stop is close to the traffic lights. Get off at the "Santa Reparata" stop (the stop after Piazza Indipendenza. Cross the road and the first street on your left is Via S. Reparata)

4. From Firenze Campo Marte station
Either catch a taxi or a bus. The bus-stop is opposite the station entrance, slightly to the right as you exit the station; buy tickets before leaving the station.
Bus number 33 - get off at the end of the line in Via Dogana, just behind Piazza S. Marco. Enter the Piazza and with your back to the church turn right down Via degli Arazzieri. Via S. Reparata is the second street on the right.
Bus number 12 - get off in Via Poliziano (ask the driver to tell you the stop). Cross over the ring road and turn into Via S. Caterina d'Alessandria. Turn down Via delle Ruote, the first street on your left and Via S. Reparata is the second street on your right.

5. By car
(a) from the South - exit the A1 motorway at FIRENZE SUD and, at the end of the road linking the motorway to the urban road network (slow down at the flashing lights), turn LEFT. Stay on this road, the "Lungarno", so called because it runs next to the Arno river, until it curves right and becomes the ring-road which runs around the city centre (the Viali). Keep to the Viali (you will pass a city gate standing in splendid isolation and the English cemetery) until you get to Piazza Libert� (easily recognizable because the buildings are all the same pinkish hue and all have porticoes). Go around a little less than half the piazza and exit down Via Lorenzo Magnifico. Turn left at the lights. At the next set of lights (about 80 metres further down) you have to cross the Viale and then turn right into Via Santa Caterina d'Alessandria. Then take the first street on the left (Via delle Ruote) and Via S. Reparata is the second on your right.
(b) from the North - exit the A1 motorway at FIRENZE NORD and follow the signs for "Firenze centro". Once on the Viali try to keep to the right if possible, especially after passing under the railway bridge, so you can enter Viale Spartaco Lavagnini with nerves relatively intact. Turn right into Via Caterina d'Alessandria just before the traffic lights.
If you intend coming to Florence by car please let us know the number-plate of your car before-hand so we can organize the deactivation of the electronic entrance to the closed traffic zone.
