    Smile Florence to Poderi in Chianti by public transport at 4.30 on a Saturday

    Hi, we are arriving at Florence SM Novella at 4.07 pm on a Saturday & need to get to Poderi in Chianti ( or close to it ) that night. Can anyone help with bus schedules & route numbers?

    You're in luck, there are still buses after you arrive to be able to get there.

    You need to go to Tavarnelle Val di Pesa, it is the closest town.

    Here's the bus schedule: http://www.acvbus.it/orari/368-370.pdf

    There aren't that many buses that make stops in Tavarnelle on Saturdays - you'll have to wait until 18:05 (there's another one at 18:35, it's the last for the day).

    You need to get off in Tavarnelle and then walk to Poderi in Chianti. Since it is 2.5km outside of town, it should take about 30 minutes. If you're arriving with luggage, maybe you can have them go pick you up in Tavarnelle?

    How are you planning to move around during your stay?

    You can use that schedule for local towns in between Poggibonsi and Florence.
    The only other line in town is line 372, also heads back to Florence.
    You can see the general schedules for the Chianti area here: http://www.acvbus.it/index.php?SEZ=9

    first thing is to look at the days it runs at the top of each column:
    SAB = saturday
    FESTIVO = Sunday
    LUN-VEN = Monday-Friday
    then head down to where you want to go and read across... if there is no time, it means it doesn't make a stop there.

    If you'll depend on public transport, you'll need to first get to another town that offers more options - either Poggibonsi (for Siena or SG) or Florence (for Pisa, Lucca and most of Tuscany). Most of the small towns in Chianti are not easy to reach, as all buses first go back to Florence!
