Most flights from North America arrive at either Rome’s Leonardo Da Vinci Airport (sometimes also called Fiumicino) or Milano’s Malpensa Airport. In both Rome and Milano, you can rent a car or find rail service to Stazione Termini in Rome or Stazione Centrale in Milan, where trains regularly depart for Firenze (Florence). Also, European carriers serve Pisa and Florence, both of which are good choices for Villa Montalbino.

Directions for Traveling By Train

If you’re arriving in Villa Montalbino by train, you can arrange with us pickups and dropoffs at the Certaldo (8 miles away) or the Empoli train station (13 miles away). This page will be updated with more detailed directions at a later date. Please visit ITALIA RAIL for complete timetables.

Car Rentals

Due to the Villa’s location in the countryside, we strongly recommend that retreat participants rent at least one car. We will provide all participants with contact information well ahead of time so that those wishing to share a car rental can make arrangements. Car rentals are available from all the major travel sites, such as Expedia. We recommend adding insurance coverage, or acquiring a credit card that provides primary coverage in Italy. Your personal coverage may not apply overseas.

Driving Directions to Villa Montalbino

We will update this page with maps and directions at a later date. In the meantime, you can find excellent driving directions on the Montalbino website.

Make sure to use directions in conjunction with a detailed road atlas, or to purchase a large enough international data plan to use maps on your mobile device. Affordable road atlases are available from Touring Club Italiano or De Agostini at any highway rest stop and most newsstands.
