Directions from: Genova (Genoa) airport | Pisa airport | Parma airport | Florence | La Spezia

From Genova (Genoa) airport:

From the airport follow the green signs for the Autostrada (A10 / A12). Once on the dual carriageway keep in the right-hand lane and keep following signs for the Autostrada.
You should come to a toll station. Avoid lanes with Telepass or VIACARD over them. Take a ticket.
Follow signs for LIVORNO / A12 - which should be the left fork just after the toll station. Continue to follow signs for LIVORNO / A12. There's two forks off to the right I think which you need to take - they're quite sudden so take it slow whenever you're coming up to a split in the motorways.

Continue to follow signs for LIVORNO / A12 until you get close to LA SPEZIA. This should take about 50mins - 1 hour depending on traffic / how fast you drive.

Near La Spezia another motorway (the A15) crosses the A12. To the right it goes to La Spezia, to the left it goes to Parma. Follow signs to PARMA / A15.
Continue on the A15 for one junction to AULLA. Come off here and you should come to a toll station. It should cost 8.70 Euro I think.

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.

On the RETURN JOURNEY when you are on the motorway at Genova before you get to the airport (about 10kms away from it) watch out for the sharp right hand fork at the last motorway interchange.
