In this article you will find useful information on how to move in Mugello. Great advices on which means of transport to use if you do not own one.
Once you reach Mugello, if you do not own any of your own vehicles (cars, moto, bicycles) you can travel by train, bus or you can rental a car.
The rental car is definitely the best choice as it allows you to move between the various municipalities autonomously, without ever having to watch the clock. With this option you will be able to explore all the towns, even the most isolated ones in the mountains.
Once you arrive in Florence there are several routes to choose from:
- A1 highway exit at Barberino di Mugello;
- Faentina (SS 302)
- Bolognese (SS 65)
The last two, unlike the highway, offer landscapes on the Tuscan hills where you can take some beautiful photographs. You can also stop in the various countries that you will find along the way.
The Mugello has a good railway line well connected to Florence. Unfortunately not all municipalities are along the railway line. Those who own a station are the following:
- San Piero a Sieve
- Borgo San Lorenzo
