FRANCIOLA is a farm near the Monte Rufeno's nature reserve and Acquapendente (the city of "Pugnaloni") and situated on a hill 500 meters above sea level in front of the ancient village of Proceno (VT), the last town in northern Lazio on the border of Tuscany and Umbria.
The picturesque landscape all around is dominated by green. The village of Proceno is in the foreground, at the back you can see Torre Alfina and, on clear days, popping up on the horizon even the tops of the central Apennines. To the north-west it shows the profiles of Monte Amiata, Monte Rufeno and Radicofani.
In the valley below flows the river "Stridolone", which in winter days, makes its voice heard.
On the highway from the south
The farm FRANCIOLA is easily reachable exiting the motorway at Orvieto (TR), reach Sferracavallo, continue towards Castelviscardo. Then follow the signs to Acquapendente, the largest country near us. Reached Acquapendente, you enter the S.S. Cassia (the ancient Via Francigena) that must be traveled in the direction of Siena until Km. 136.
Here you take the fork to Proceno and go along the road Procenese towards Castellazzara to Km. 6.5 to find, on the left, the sign for Fattoria FRANCIOLA.
On the highway from the north
On leaving the motorway at Firenze, continue on the right towards Siena (4 lanes) and exit at Siena South. Continue on the SS Cassia to Rome for about 90 km, to 136 km, where you take the right fork to Proceno . From there, follow our yellow signs. From Florence you can alternatively go further, exit at Orvieto and follow "from the south on the highway," but the scenery observed along the Cassia road from Siena to the junction of Proceno is deserving of the previous choice.
The nearest train station is in Orvieto (TR), from there you can reach Acquapendente by bus (we can give you the information), in which we can pick you.
If you can't come by bus to Acquapendente, if possible, we can pick you up in Orvieto.
The nearest airports are in Rome, from where you can take the bus to Acquapendente, or the train to Orvieto.
