DIRECTIONS TO CASALE SANTA MARIA NUOVA FROM PERUGIA AIRPORT
On leaving the airport follow the directions to Perugia.
As soon as you get onto the dual carriageway, being the SS75, go into the left hand lane and stay there as the road splits with the right lane signposted to Cesena – YOU DO NOT WANT TO GO ON THAT ROUTE so stay left.
After about 2kms take the right slip signposted ‘A1 FIRENZE/PERUGIA’ This is the Raccordo Autostradale Perugia –A1.
You will go through 4 tunnels (if you don’t go through the tunnels than you are not on the right road) and just stay on this road for about 18kms after which you will take the slip road signposted MAGIONE. Turn right at the bottom of the slip road following the signs for MAGIONE.
You will go over a little bridge and come to a roundabout. Take the second exit onto Viale Umbria SS599 and stay on this road for about 19kms going through Sant’ Arcangelo, Mirabella, Panicarola and Pineta.
About 0.5kms after Pineta, go under the bridge and turn immediate right following signposts to Chiusi. You will merge onto the SS71 and after about 7kms you will come to the village of Moiano.
In the centre of the village you will see a large car park on your right, turn right here (there is a signpost to LE COSTE). You will pass the ‘Farmacia’ on your right. Turn right at the ‘T’ junction following the signs to LE COSTE, then first left, over the canal bridge, under the railway bridge and at the ‘T’ junction (bip your horn first because there is a blind spot for cars coming from the right) turn left onto the white road and you will come through the LE COSTE gates. The entrance avenue is lined with cypress trees.
Stay on this road (do not turn left or right), you will pass a junction at the bottom of the first hill you go over (two roads off to your left do not turn off onto them) , then there is the access to ‘Casa del Fico’, the road you need to stay on veres to the right and you will come to a signpost to Le Coste pointing to the right. There are also many other signposts at this junction. DO NOT TURN RIGHT here but carry straight on. You will pass a turning to you left. AGAIN DO NOT TURN HERE but carry straight on up the hill. The road takes a sharp right hand bend and after about 50m you will come to a ‘Madonna’ on your left. Turn left and continue to the end of the road.
Santa Maria Nouva is directly in front of you.
YOU HAVE ARRIVED.
