Take the Italian Autostrada A1: Milan – Modena – Bologna – Firenze – in the direction of Rome. If you come from Rome, take the A1 in the direction of Firenze – Bologna.
Exit this highway at the Valdichiana exit (about 90 KM after Florence coming from the North, or about 150 KM after Rome coming from the South). Having paid the toll you keep to the right and follow directions for Perugia, towards the SS75 or “Raccordo Perugia – A1 Bettole”.
After a few 100 metres you will enter the SS75. This is the provincial highway (no toll), connecting Siena and Perugia. Follow this highway in the direction of Perugia for about 35 kms. After a while, having passed the exits for Cortona and Castiglione del Lago, you will see Lake Trasimeno on your right hand side. Exit at the Tuoro exit, which is a sharp right turn.
Leave the railway station on your left and go to the right at the crossroads, underneath the highway, take the short steep hill up. On the top of this go to the left (obligatory direction) and immediately to the right again following signs for Tuoro, Umbertide and Lisciano Niccone.
You are now on the SS416 entering the village of Tuoro. There are houses on both sides of this street (Via Sette Martiri). At the end after about 800 metres there is a crossroads, go straight ahead into the Viale C. Flaminio, still following the SS416 towards Umbertide and Lisciano Niccone. Go up hill and continue following this road.
You are passing the centre of the village of Tuoro. In an S-curve you will see the newspaper stand on your left. You will have to follow your way turning left, passing a small park on your right hand side. You are now, still on the SS416 - Via Roma.
Take the first right after the park. On a sign it says “Capricci di Merion”. This is the Via Pascoli. Follow the street for about another 300 mtrs until you cannot go ahead anymore. Turn right here, on the next T-crossing go left, below the hill over a small bridge and turn left on the crossing immediately after this bridge. This is the Via Vignone.
Keep driving up until you see two yellow houses on your left. The first is n.11, your destination.
