How to get there

From Pisa airport, follow the signs for Firenze ( Florence). The road is the SS67, more commonly known as the Fi-Pi-Li as it links the 3 cities of Firenze, Pisa and Livorno. When the road fromPisa merges with the road from Livorno, keep heading for Firenze and you will see an exit for Pontadera. Ignore the first exit, marked Pontadera and Ponsacco, and take the 2nd exit marked Pontadera, Pecciol and Volterra (the SP11) You will come to a very large roundabout with some sculptures. Go right around the roundabout and take the SP11 then the SP64 to Pecciol and Volterra. Stay on the SP64 past the villages of Forcoli on the left and Capannoli on the right until you come to a roundabout with yet more modern sculptures. Take a left here and follow the brown sign for the Osservatorio Astronomico which is situated at Libbiano.Turn right at the T junction, then right again, over the little bridge and left up the hill.

If this sounds complicated, follow this link http://brunelleschi.imss.fi.it/itineraries/map/OsservatorioAstronomicoGalileoGalilei.html

but be careful if you use satellite navigation, as there are several Libbianos in Tuscany, so look out for Libbiano, Commune de Peccioli!
