We are served by ATAF buses nos. 31 and 32, leaving Stazione Montelungo.

Urban bus lines nos. 31 and 32 leave from Viale Montelungo, passing through platform n. 16 of the Santa Maria Novella station (or other stops in the city centre) and take you to the ‘Antella Belmonte’ stop, which is located right before the motorway junction. Continuing forward for a few meters you will reach the entrance to Via Fortini, on the stretch that leads to Florence. 

Go down at Via Fortini from a small descent, at the beginning of which there are iron structures with yellow signs. In Via Fortini, on the right side you will have a wall, on the other some vegetation, behind which you will see the "Conference FLORENTIA" hotel. After about 5 minutes of walking you will find our gate on your right, at number 143.  Ring the bell at “Fondazione Lisio-Uffici”.

Going up the hill for about 50 metres, the Foundation is on the left of the church.
