From Firenze (Florence):
From Florence take the A11 motorway (AUTOSTRADA) towards the west coast, signposted (in green) GENOVA, PISA, LUCCA or LIVORNO. After half an hour or so there is a split in the motorway - follow signs towards GENOVA and not Livorno or Pisa.
Continue to follow signs for GENOVA and you will then join the A12 motorway. Continue towards GENOVA until you get close to LA SPEZIA. This should about another half an hour or so depending on traffic / how fast you drive.
Near La Spezia another motorway (the A15) crosses the A12. To the left
it goes to La Spezia, to the right it goes to Parma. Follow signs to PARMA
Continue on the A15 for one junction to AULLA. Come off here and you should come to a toll station.
Follow the road across the bridge towards Aulla.
At the T-junction turn right. You should see a yellow & blue LIDL supermarket on the right.
Get into the left hand lane and follow TUTTE DIREZIONE to the left at the fountain. You do not want Centro.
Turn left again and then get in the right hand lane. You should see a builders yard in front of you.
Follow PONTREMOLI or VILLAFRANCA round to the right. You should go under a bridge. Continue to follow the road round to the right again.
At the junction turn left. Do not go towards Fivizzano.
Get in the right hand lane and go round to the right onto the main road, sign poster PONTREMOLI or VILLAFRANCA. You should now be running parallel to a railway track on your left and there should be some traffic lights after 100m or so. After this you should pass a supermarket called CONAD on your right and then a tractor shop on your left called RICCI.
Continue straight along this rather bendy road for some time (about 10-15 mins) until you reach VILLAFRANCA. You'll pass through the town and some shops. You should see a red garage on your right. Just after this you should come to a set of traffic lights.
Turn right at the traffic lights. This should be sign posted to BAGNONE and FILETTO. After 2-3 mins you should come to a stone arch that is the entrance to a little place called Filetto. This area is pedestrianised so you can't go through the village square itself and you have to turn left just before the arch. Follow the road round until you get to a T-junction after another 2-3 minutes. Turn right and follow the road for 2-3 mins. At the next T-junction turn left.
Follow the road for two or three kilometres, round a bend to the right and you will come to the outskirts of Bagnone. Follow the road through the stone arches and into the town square. You have now arrived at BAGNONE.
