Exit at Santa Maria degli Angeli Nord. You will encounter a series of roundabouts that are numbered. At roundabout nr 2 follow Santa Maria degli Angeli. In Santa Maria degli Angeli drive along the huge church with a golden statue on the top of the facade. Drive straight on along the church, then take the underpass beneath the railway. Note the sign for Assisi almost in front of the MacDonald’s as soon as you emerge from the underpass. Continue following signs for Assisi until roundabout nr 5 (approx. 3.5 km/ 2.1 miles from the Church).
Here turn left downhill, direction Perugia (SS 147), you will be soon driving on the Ponte San Vittorino (a bridge close to a bus and camper parking lot). Just after the bridge turn sharp right in Via San Vittorino along the parking lot (this is Parking area E).
Continue straight on for 1.7 km (1 mile) without taking any turn until a T-junction where you have to turn left. You will see the sign of Via Petrata on your left as soon as you turn. Continue uphill for 4.2 km (2.6 miles). Do not take Via Mosciole nor any turn into unpaved roads until you arrive at a large stone building with a metal gate, the Castello di Petrata. After the Castello you will notice our house across the hill with solar panels on the roof.
Continue past the Castello di Petrata for 1 km (0.6 miles) until you see a long, low house of a white-cream color at nr. 35-37. The B&B is at nr. 37. Note the ceramic plate depicting a medieval lady near the house number.
The house has many doors, please ring at nr. 37 (which is indicated below the plate) and we will tell you where to park.
