    How to get there

    To get to Cortona, the cheapest low-cost airlines are Ryanair and Easy-jet , to Rome, Pisa and Perugia.... In the Summer there are also flights to Florence ....

    We strongly recommend that you rent a car to pick-up at the airport of your choice, cheaper via internet ....
    Florence Airport is 1hour and 30 minutes circa .... Pisa is 2 hours and 30 minutes as well as Rome ....
    Perugia is only 40 minutes away ....

    Without a car you will find getting about difficult and time consuming as most visitors find public transport iinadequate.
