How to get there
Airport: Rome, Florence, Pisa, Perugia, Bologna: 0.0 mi
Railway: Camucia-Cortona (7min drive) and Terontola-Cortona (10 min drive). Taxis service both stations.: 0.0 mi
It is an easy drive on the A1 - the main motorway from all the major airports of Rome (2hours) , Florence (1 hour) and Pisa (2 hours) and I will provide full directions at the time of booking and final payment.

International Airlines (and their Alliance partners) will land at Rome Airport. Other European carriers may land at Rome, Pisa, Florence, Perguia or Bologna.

Airlines from the UK: I have noted only direct flights. Many other European Airlines that fly from UK regional airports to Italy via their own main hubs and offer some good deals - though of course the time is usually 4-5 hours travel rather then the usual 2 hours for a direct flight.

Note: Information correct at time of entry (2014)
