The best way of reaching Chianti is by car. Don’t get scared about legends on how Italians drive. In Central Italy, people drive quite safely! Car rentals in Florence are quite cheap and most of them have a branch close to Florence Central Station. Check the map.

By car: From A1 highway, exit to Firenze Impruneta, take the SS to Siena (immediately on the right when you get out of the highway) and take the exit to San Casciano Val di Pesa. Reach the town of San Casciano V.P. and follow the sign for Mercatale Val di Pesa. Take  SP92 / Via Grevigiana following the directions for Mercatale V.P.

By bus: there are buses leaving from Florence Central Station to Mercatale val di Pesa, check the timetable and do write us if you need help!

By taxi: a taxi ride can be pretty expensive. It is advisable to rent a car.
