How to find Poggio Etrusco
Via del Pelago 11, Loc Fontecornino
If you are using GPS with the address only, or internet maps, please be sure to also print out these directions. GPS only brings you part of the way.
From Florence: A1 south from Florence. Exit at Val di Chiana, go to Montepulciano. When you arrive to the main gate of Montepulciano, go around the little traffic circle to the left, toward Chianciano Terme. When you reach the three-way intersection for San Biagio (to the right) and Pienza (straight), turn left toward Chianciano Terme and Chiusi. This is SS 146.
From Rome: A1 north from Rome. Exit at Chiusi, go left toward Chianciano Terme and Montepulciano. This is SS 146.
Poggio Etrusco is off SS 146 which goes between Montepulciano (to the north) and Chianciano Terme (to the south). When you reach the village of S.Albino, turn east on Via del Cipresso. It may be difficult to see the sign for this road, but there a sign for ‘Zona Artigianale’ and the Hotel Due Cigni, very close to Hotel/Ristorante Tre Stelle (note Tre Stelle, you'll enjoy a meal there later!). You follow this road 2.3 kms. until it makes a hard right… immediately on the left you will see a small wooden sign for Poggio Etrusco. Turn left there (it is Via del Pelago, but it is not marked); we are the second structure on the right (the first is a fruit storehouse); the driveway is easily spotted by the large wine barrels.
