Tenuta di Spannocchia
53012 Chiusdino, Siena, Italy
From Florence airport:
Exit the airport to the traff light, and turn right onto the four-lane divided highway going west. After several kilometers, exit towards the A-1 for Roma, Bologna. After the toll booth (pick up ticket), bear left at the fork to take the A-1 south in the direction of Rome. You will pass the exit for Firenze Signa, then very shortly after a tunnel, take the exit for Firenze Impruneta.
At the end of the exit stay right (not too far right, which are special lanes) through the toll booth (1 or 2 Euro). You come immediately to a traff circle, which you will barely enter, bearing immediately to the right to enter the non-toll superhighway from Florence to Siena, Grosseto, etc. The drive from Florence to Siena on this road is approximately 40-50 minutes.
Approaching Siena from the northwest, you will continue on the highway as it becomes the Tangenziale Ovest, passing the first exit for Siena Nord and Acqua Calda, and following signs for Arezzo. Exit from the highway at Siena Ovest Porta San Marco, which brings you at the end of the ramp to local highway SS 73 Senese-Aretina. Turn left and follow the SS 73 through Costafabbri, Costalpino, Volte Basse, to Rosia.
At Rosia, drive through the town and you will pass the AGIP gas station on the left, then the bar “La Pergola”. Just past Bar Pergola, an intersecting road from the left goes to Torri, Orgia, etc. Bear right to continue out of Rosia on SS 73. Just 3.9 km from that intersection, you will see a small marble cutting factory on the right, and our driveway with Spannocchia sign immediately after on the
left. Follow the drive all the way (2.2 km) to the top, past the large green gate, and past the tower on your left, making finally a sharp curve to the left between brick columns to arrive at the rear courtyard of the Fattoria.
