Flights To Abruzzo
The easiest way from the UK is by plane and the easiest flight is with Ryanair to Pescara from London’s Stansted Airport.
Once you’ve landed at Pescara, we’re just an hour’s drive south.
Of other airports on the Adriatic coast, Ryanair flights to Ancona, 2h 30m north of us, are a very good alternative.
Just over half our UK guests fly from their nearest regional airport into Rome. From there it’s an easy (and highly scenic) drive of around 3 hours, with all except the last 10 miles or so on an uncrowded autostrada.
Budget flights from around Europe tend to lane at Rome’s Ciampino Airport; with other airlines and intercontinental flights from around the world landing at Fiumicino (also known as Leonardo da Vinci Airport).
Both of these airports these are excellently placed for accessing the Gran Raccordo Anulare – or ‘GRA’ – the autostrada that circles Rome – and from which you turn-off to begin your journey here !
And if you’re splitting your Italian holiday, Easyjet and Ryanair flights from the UK – and from many other major international cities – come into both Milan and Turin – and from there you can pick-up internal flights to Pescara.
Whether you choose to arrive in Pescara, Ancona or Rome, we’ll send you comprehensive directions here from airport terminal to our carpark – and a few tips about driving in Italy – along with your booking.
Driving To Abruzzo
Quite a few of our guests from the UK – and a great many from mainland Europe – decide to drive here.
The chief benefits of course are to make getting here – and even the drive home too – all part of your holiday; not being restricted to airline baggage allowances; and the ability to load your car with Abruzzo goodies to take home !
From the southern UK, if both of you share the driving you can get here – as some of our guests have done – inside a day.
But from elsewhere in the UK – or for a more leisurely journey – most plan for one or two overnight stops en-route.
The same applies to northern Europe – though from southern Europe, we’re easily reachable in a day.
Trains To Abruzzo
A realistic option if you’re planning a trip round Italy and want to keep your driving to a minimum.
Our nearest mainline station is Pescara on the north-south Adriatic coast line, which has fast services up to Milan, Bologna and Turin – and down to Bari and the heel of Italy.
It’s definitely not advisable to try and come here by train from Rome.
There’s no direct mainline link and the journey is a long and meandering one which takes over 5 hours.
Local Public Transport
Although there’s a terrific bus service that connects Rome with Pescara on the Adriatic coast and our nearby town of Lanciano, it has to be said that outside the larger towns, local bus services aren’t especially wide-ranging or frequent – and more geared towards getting people to and from work.
That means they tend to operate more often early in the morning and late afternoon.
A car really is essential to get the full benefit from your Abruzzo holiday.
