How to reach the Garden Design School

Villa Peyron is on Via di Vincigliata n° 2. This is the lovely road that winds through the woods from Fiesole to Settignano. The Villa is near Castel di Poggio, a few miles away from the centre of Florence.

Coming by public transport :

You can reach Fiesole from Florence with bus 7 (Stazione F.S. S.M.N-Fiesole). This bus goes from the central railway station, passing through Piazza San Marco and the Cathedral (Piazza del Duomo - Via dei Martelli), to Piazza Mino da Fiesole. The terminus is across the road from Fiesole cathedral, on the city's main square. From there you can take bus 46, which follows Via di Vincigliata.

There is a shuttle service during the period of the courses from Piazza Mino da Fiesole to Villa Peyron.

Coming by car:

From Via Lungo l'Affrico turn right on to Via Gabriele D'Annunzio till you reach Ponte a Mensola, where you will find Via di Vincigliata on your left. Pass Villa I Tatti, drive for 3,5 miles, until you come out of the wood. The gate of Villa Peyron will be on your left. An alternative route is from Piazza Edison. Take Vai di San Domenico till you reach Piazza Mino da Fiesole. Go towards Olmo. After less than 2 miles turn right on to Via di Vincigliata and drive for another half mile. The gate of Villa Peyron will be on your right.

Villa Bardini is only a stone's throw from Ponte Vecchio, on Costa San Giorgio n° 2. There is also an entrance on in Via dei Bardi n° 1/r.
