I'm planning a holiday for somewhere in Perugia / Lake Trasimeno area and need advice as to which is the better airport into which to fly; followed by car hire for rest of visit.
I live near Manchester airport and want a direct non-stop flight to Italy. The two obvious options are flights from Manchester to Rome or Pisa. No better options are available if I fly from the other UK airports within an hour or two drive from Manchester. (I know one can fly from Stanstead direct to Perugia, but Stanstead is much too far from home)
Driving times from Rome or Pisa to Perugia area seem to be similar, using Googlemaps.
So, assuming flight costs and departure times are also similar for both airports, should I fly into Pisa or Rome?
Key factors that would be relevant to me are ease of car hire at those two airports, ease of driving out of airport and towards Perugia / Lake Trasimeno and ease of finding way back to into airport.
Any thoughts ? Thanks.
PS - to clarify - on this visit I would not also be visiting either Rome or Pisa; just straight to and from the holiday area
