Florence is about 40 km from Pian di Sco far away, but only 5 km from Reggello and 7 km from Figline Valdarno (already province of Florence).

We usually suggest to reach Villa Valentini in Pian di Sco by car, which is the fastest and easiest way to reach our location and have the freedom to move and explore our territory but if you plan to stay for a short holiday you can anyway reach us by taxi, private taxi, bus or train.

Following are the 3 ways to reach Pian di Sco from Florence

  • By bus : it takes too much time and there is a bus every 3 hours. Not to consider, since you would not reach the final destination (the house Villa Valentini).
