Getting 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.
Ryanair also fly here throughout the year from Brussels, Frankfurt and Paris – and have services too from Dusseldorf and Oslo.
In summer, there’s even a weekly direct flight to Pescara from Toronto.
Of other airports on the Adriatic coast, Ryanair flights to Ancona, 2h 30m north of us, are a good alternative. Or consider Bari, 3h to the south.
Rome offers the biggest choice in flights from the UK, Ireland and mainland Europe. Though Pescara remains the most popular landing spot for our guests, an increasing number are taking advantage of the choice in flights and fares that Rome provides.
From the UK, you can pick up either Easyjet or Ryanair flights from pretty well all regional airports to Rome’s Fiumicino or Ciampino. And other UK and European budget airlines fly into Rome too.
Most budget airlines use Ciampino Airport. Major airlines from Europe, North America and worldwide land at Fiumicino (also known as Leonardo da Vinci Airport).
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.
By Train 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.
If you want to use public transport to get to Abruzzo from Rome, by far and away the best choice is to use the cheap, efficient, comfortable bus service. Ask us if you’d like to know more.
