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 30 kms. After a while, having passed the exits for Foiano della Chiana, 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 railwaystation on your left and keep going 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 to the right in the direction of Passignano sul Trasimeno and Vernazzano (1.5 km).
After 1.5 km you will see the sign for Vernazzano on the left. Go to the left here (there is a large pine tree at this T-crossing). Keep following this road lined with houses until you get to a crossroad with on the left opposite corner an iron cross with behind it a small park. About 20/30 metres straight on, on your right, you will see the gate of Il Piratello.
