2019 Badia Works
Works begin on the Badia Fiesolana Campus, please read carefully all information related to internal mobility and access restrictions (see also our FAQs section) !
Please note: driving between the Badia and Villa Salviati will necessarily take longer than usual, as a result of transit restrictions on the internal driveway from Ponte alla Badia (no access for cars and other motor vehicles, including scooters). Detailed information is available here.

Impact on the EUI Community
Access/exit from the Ponte alla Badia gate will be prohibited for all motor vehicles (including scooters). Access to and departure from the Badia car parks will be possible on the internal connecting road below Villa Schifanoia, from the gate at Via Boccaccio 107. Two-way transit on the connecting road will be regulated by a traffic light.
- The Shuttle bus service will necessarily undergo schedule modifications: the new timetable will be published on the Shuttle webpage prior to 15 April (www.eui.eu/shuttle).
- Taxis and buses must arrive at and depart from the Badia church square, arriving from Via de’ Roccettini.
- Refurbishment works will be carried out in ONE of the 3 existing parking lots at a time, so as to always have at least 2 of them available for EUI users (P3+P1 or P3+P2). To minimize inconvenience to users some additional spaces in P3 previously reserved for suppliers and EUI vehicles have been opened up for general use.
