How to reach us by car
Thanks to its location close to the motorway and the railway station, it is very easy to reach Montepulciano and the Il Sasso Italian School both by car and by public transport.
If you continue the journey by car, from the Rome airports take the G.R.A. (Grande Raccordo Anulare) and then enter the A1 motorway towards Florence, exiting at Chiusi/Chianciano Terme. Then follow the signs for Montepulciano. If you are coming from the Florence airport, enter the motorway at Firenze Nord, towards Rome, and exit at Valdichiana/Bettolle. If you are arriving from Pisa, take the "Fi-Pi-Li" (Florence - Pisa - Livorno main road), then enter the A1 motorway in the direction of Rome. Exit at Valdichiana/Bettolle. Then follow the directions for Montepulciano.
When you arrive in Montepulciano, leave your car in one of the parking lots outside the city and walk to the school. The historic center of Montepulciano is closed to traffic. You cannot enter with your car. The school is located near the church of S. Agostino.
If you travel by plane or train
If you arrive by plane, the best thing to do is fly to Rome (Fiumicino - Leonardo da Vinci airport or Rome Ciampino airport), Florence (Amerigo Vespucci airport) or Pisa (Galileo Galilei airport).
If you're coming by train, take the Florence-Rome line and get off at the Chiusi/Chianciano Terme station or at Montepulciano Stazione station. While at Chiusi/Chianciano Terme you can find both, bus and taxi, at Montepulciano Stazione you can only take a taxi. If you take the bus from Chiusi to Montepulciano, get off at the bus station. From there you can come into the centre on foot or take the little white bus ("Pollicino"). If you take the "Pollicino", get off at Piazza Michelozzo. Please notice that on Sundays there are only a few buses from Chiusi to Montepulciano.
You can find all information about the Italian train schedules at www.trenitalia.com. For the bus schedules please download the app "at bus".
If you are interested in a pick-up service from the train station, you can book it when you register for the course. The cost from Chiusi is around Euro 50. You may also arrange a pick up from the airports. Prices on request (from Euro 200 to Euro 300, one way).
