 The Centre is situated in Bulla di Monte Santo, a small village near the town of Ponte dell’Olio, 30 kilometres south of Piacenza, in the Nure valley. It’s surrounded by oak woods in a peaceful and silent environment  in the Appenine foothills, just below a higher hill called Monte Santo, 600 metres above sea level. From the Centre you can reach the peaks of the Appenines, through a number of nature trails, up to a height of 1800 metres.

Here are the directions to reach us by car: exit the highway  at Piacenza Sud (south), then follow directions for tangenziale sud, then STADIO:  exit the “tangenziale” at the sign STADIO BETTOLA, GRAZZANO VISCONTI, then keep your left, do the roundabout and follow the signs for VAL NURE. Drive on for 30km until you reach a little village called Biana, five km after the town of Pontedellolio. Get off the main road when you reach a little church on your left and go up 200 m.  At the next crossroads  follow the sign for Montesanto, a little road uphill to the right. After 2 km you will find the sign for PIAN DEI CILIEGI. IMPORTANT: For those arriving from Bologna we suggest you DO NOT follow your Gps because this device will tell you to exit the highway in Fiorenzuola instead of Piacenza Sud, which is the easiest route to reach the Centre.

If you’re coming by plane: take a bus from the airport to the Milano Centrale train station and take a train to Piacenza. If you are coming by train on a weekday you should take the shuttle from the train station to the bus terminal. It passes every 10 minutes and the ride lasts 5 minutes. The shuttle stop is opposite the station, so you have to cross the square, go through the underpass and reach the other side of the street. On the shuttle you will see the direction: P.zza Cittadella - V.le Risorgimento – P.le Marconi (train station) – Lupa (bus terminal). You can also reach the bus terminal along a pedestrian walkway, on the left of the train station (15 minutes)

You can also reach the bus terminal along a pedestrian walkway, on the left of the train station (15 minutes) If you take the shuttle it arrives at the bus terminal on platform 1 and you should look for the next bus for the Valnure on the timetable. The direction is Bettola, Farini, or Selva (E26-E34).

You can buy your ticket on the bus (3.60 euro). Ask the bus driver to drop you off in Biana (which is an optional stop); my suggestion is to remind the driver when the bus gets to Ponte dell'Olio (after about 40 minutes, right after a bridge) - because he might forget by the time you get there. Biana is about 5/10 minutes after Ponte dell'Olio. If you let us know what bus you're on we can pick you up at the bus stop. The numbers to call are : 0523/878948 (Centre) or 329-1269064 (Gianni). You can also walk up 2 km, but it's very steep.
