  • go right at the exit, 90 degrees; follow San Vincenzo on the right for about 300 m driving to the West; do not enter the industrial area, which is the first on your right; go on to the STOP sign; you’re arriving on the SP39;
  • go right at the STOP (90 degrees again) direction San Vincenzo (brown sign for Populonia), then drive about 550 m on the SP39; at this stage, you are driving North again;
  • go right (90 degrees again) at the roundabout and follow the signs SAN CARLO e AGRITURISMO IL CARDINALE; DO NOT DRIVE STRAIGHT ON TO SAN VINCENZO, where it is another road to SAN CARLO, which is the wrong one;
  • go ahead to the East for about 2 Km climbing to the hill (and pass under the SS1 freeway you just had left); the sign and the gate of IL CARDINALE are on the right side (the automatic gate is big and grey).
