  1. from the highway exit (“Uscita autostrada”) of Firenze Nord:
    Follow the indication “Centro” (Centre) till the sign “Stazione F.S.” (Central Railways Station) appears; follow this last indication till the sign “Fiesole” appears: by following the latter you will go successively through, a large avenue (viale Lavagnini),Piazza della Libertá, Via Don Minzoni, a characteristic U-shaped railway overpass, Piazza delle Cure, Via dei Mille, reaching a traffic light with a clear arrow pointing to a left turn at right angle to “Fiesole” which you will do . Immediately after there is another traffic light: carry on straight ahead and uphill, as you are now in Via della Piazzola (at this traffic light you must not follow anymore the indication “Fiesole” which points to the right).
