How to get to Lungarotti: Go to Piazza Italia and take the escalators all the way down to Piazza Partigiani. You will see the bus information office where you can buy a ticket to Torgiano (bus line E006). Be sure to ask which platform the bus is leaving from.

In the summer, the best option is to take a 2:30 bus and make sure to get the last bus back at 17:15! Leave plenty of time to walk back as it can be a far walk. When you get off the bus, you will get dropped off at Via Giordano Bruno. To get to the winery, walk in the same direction that the bus that just dropped you off went. At the end of the street, take left on Via Mario Angeloni (you’ll see the buildings of the winery down next to the vineyards) and walk for a few minutes. Keep walking straight on this main road until you see the entrance to Lungarotti on your right.
