Arriving by car
We recommend you not use GPS navigation systems to arrive at Fagiolari. The GPS does not recognize the address and will lead you to an incorrect destination and you will soon be lost! The GPS will often take difficult or unpleasant routes, so we encourage you to print and follow our instructions and include them in your travel documents.
However, it is sometimes possible to use GPS to get to “Panzano in Chianti” (if you type it correctly with no errors). Once you arrive in Panzano, you can try to use the following Latitude/Longitude coordinates to arrive at Fagiolari: 43° 32’ 16” N, 11° 17’ 56” E. No guarantees!!
If you are driving south from Milano or Bologna on the A-1 autostrada, take the FIRENZE SUD exit. As you leave the toll station, take a right turn, following the signs to Greve and Siena on SS 222. About 22 km from the toll station, you’ll drive through Greve. Continue up the hill on SS 222 another 8 km and you’ll arrive in Panzano with its little piazza on the right. Turn right at the piazza and drive 0.2 km to where the road forks; take the left fork down the hill to a little roundabout. Drive through the roundabout and around to your right 50 meters and immediately past a low, pale-green building, on your left, you’ll find the unpaved lane to Fagiolari.
If you are driving north on the A-1 from Roma, you may also take the FIRENZE SUD exit and follow the above directions. Or you can take the VALDICHIANA exit and follow the SS 326 superstrada to Siena where you’ll find SS 222 heading north to Castellina and Panzano. If you arrive in Panzano from Siena, you’ll want to turn left at the piazza and drive 0.2 km to where the road forks; take the left fork down the hill to a little roundabout. Drive through the roundabout and around to your right 50 meters and immediately past a low, pale-green building, on your left, you’ll find the unpaved lane to Fagiolari.
If you are driving east from Pisa on the A-11 autostrada or the Fi-Pi-Li superstrada, you’ll come to the A-1 autostrada outside of Florence. Follow signs for A-1 Roma, and once on the A-1, take the FIRENZE SUD exit. Then follow directions given to drivers from Milano or Bologna.
