For those wishing to reach Villa Finaly on foot, from the town center it takes about 50 minutes walking quickly. From Piazza della libertà, which is 4 km away it takes about 35/40 minutes as the road is all uphill.
However, there is a portion of the road a little dangerous at the end of the way, near the New York University, because the sidewalk is small and the traffic is quite intensive.
