Getting to Umbria

Umbria in Central Italy, has its own airport, between Perugia and Assisi San Francesco di Assisi. It is not a large airport and it may be more practical for most to fly to other Italian regions, renting a car and drive to Umbria or take a train.

At the moment there is a direct flight from London Stansted to Perugia with Ryanair. From April to October this is a daily connection.

From April to October three times a day flights go to Rome Fiumicino which can be a good solution for connections with international flights.

Airports

Click on the name of the airport to be taken to the website of the airport for detailed information on flights and facilities.

San Francesco d'Assisi - Perugia airport - in between Perugia and Assisi
Forli - north of Umbria
Ancona - east of Umbria
Bologna - north of Umbria
Firenze (Florence) - north of Umbria
Rome Fiumicino and Ciampino airports - south of Umbria
Pisa - north east of Umbria

All the above airports have car hire facilities. You need a car to stay at most of the houses, as they are all in the hills and no public transport passes nearby.

Car rentals can be found at the various airports, but also in several Umbrian cities. More details can be found on the car rental in Umbria webpage.

We do have several people we can recommend that offer airport transfers. We recommend GianLuca the 'Umbrian Driver' but in case he is already booked, do let us know because we can get in touch with other small companies offering the same services.

Train connections

The easiest stations for train connections to Firenze and Rome are either Terontola (just North of Lake Trasimeno, near Cortona), Perugia Ponte San Giovanni or Foligno (South of Assisi). If you are staying in the South of Umbria you can easily take a train from 'Orte'.

Check on the website: www.trenitalia.it for timetables and reservations. The site is also available in English.

Visiting Florence by train is much easier and faster than by car, Rome also. The cities are not easy accessible by car, there is a lot of traffic and finding parking space often is a nightmare.
