Accommodation in l'Aquila

Can anyone suggest where to stay in l'Aquila which is close to the university, daughter will be studying there and would like to go possibly for 3 nights in April, needs to be within walking distance as we will not have a car. Also can you fly direct to l'Aquila or would we fly to Rome and then take the bus, any help would be appreciated as have never been to Italy before.

I think there is one hotel close to the Uni (The Sporting), but you have a good choice of B&B's around which might be a better option.

The number 2 B&B looks very good and its' reviews are great. It's pretty close to the uni too.

Unfortunately L'Aquila airport has become a bit of a white elephant and apart from one inaugural flight last year when it opened, there have been none since and none planned! Rome Ciampino is probably your best route (about 90mins by bus) or Fiumicino (120-135mins by bus). There are also flights to Pescara from Stansted. There is a good direct bus service from both Ciampino and Fiumicino to L'Aquila with Gaspari http://www.gasparionline.it/ Getting from Pescara would be more difficult using public transport.

Hope this helps, but if you need any more information, please feel free to post again or contact us via private message if you prefer.

I've just had a look at flight options and it looks as though you are in luck! Ryanair have a daily schedule from Manchester to Rome Ciampino :)
