Linea 94 





Residenza Piandaccoli is:

  • 5km from Lastra a Signa
  • less than a 15-minute drive from Empoli
  • 20 km from Florence (25 minutes)
  • 17 km from Florence Airport (20 minutes) 
  • 70 km from Pisa airport (60 minutes)


Pisa Airport --> Residenza Piandaccoli 

When you exit the airport area, take the "Superstrada Firenze Pisa Livorno" (shorted FI-PI-LI) towards Empoli and Firenze. This is a free of charge 4 lanes road that will bring you very close to the Residence. 

There are 2 ways to get to our Residence, but we will only recommend one road since the second one is narrow, ruined and steep. 

Take the Montelupo road, not Ginestra Fiorentina.

For the last 10 km, take the Exit Montelupo, then drive towards Montelupo old center, then before the city library turn right towards Malmantile, after 2 km turn right in Via Piandaccoli. Just for the last 5 km, once out FI-PI-LI road, I advise to check it directly with Google Maps and Street View so that you get familiar with the type of roads and building around.
