How to get there
Budget Airlines including Ryanair, Jet2, Monarch, Easyjet and Alitalia are some that serve the area very well at airports including Pescara, Rome, Ancona, Rimini, and further away at Perugia, Venice Pisa and Naples. Flights are available from most major UK and European airports. Other airlines offer many other options. The 'Italia' magazine usually has a guide as to who flies where. Many other airlines operate but the former ones above appear the most cost effective.
Pescara is about 35 mins. (Abruzzo International Airport)
Rome about 2hr but a great easy and scenic drive and well worth the trip.
Ancona similar then down the coastal motorway (see the huge waterpark and resorts)
Rimini a little further than Ancona
Perugia about 3 hrs.
PIsa / Venice about 5hrs
Many car hire companies operate from Italian airports and their respective city outlets. Hertz, (Ryanair link) and all other major companies operate at these locations. Car hire is advised. All routes from airports are scenic and uncongested.
The Italian train network (trenitalia) is excellent and it is possible to book individual seats online in the various standards they offer. There are options travelling through Europe by train, and routes where you can also load your car, motorhome, motorcycle etc onto the train for much of the journey.
Driving from the UK or Europe can be a great experience and there are lots of routes to incorporate sightseeing elsewhere in Europe along the way. A non stop journey however from the UK for example will take 2 days with an overnight stay somewhere. There are two realistic options one being through France, taking in some of the lakes, then perhaps lake Como, Milan, Genoa, Pisa, Florence, Rome, or Perugia. Or through Germany through the Black Forest incorporating Lake Konstanz (Zepelin museum) Verona, maybe Venice, and down the coastal motorway passing Rimini, the independent tiny state of San Marino, Ancona and so on. Both are great routes. The French route can be expensive with motorway tolls but it is possible to plan a toll free route particularly the latter option above.
Bus transport links are excellent; however a hire car is much easier and quicker to explore the region. Driving in Abruzzo is quiet and easy 99% of the time even from the Rome airports but it is advisable to avoid driving through the centre of Rome.
If this is your first time in Italy, or you would like some ideas on other places to stay in Italy incorporating Villa Abruzzo, visit please feel free to ask.
Driving from either of the two Rome airports particularly Ciampino (Ryanair) is a preferred route, as it's easy, scenic and enjoyable on the A24 motorway, under the spectacular Gran Sasso Mountains (alternative going the longer but spectacular route over the top) then quiet and lovely countryside views.
This route takes you past some of the winter Ski areas. Once off the motorway it's like stepping into a different world and always an enjoyable experience. Dependent on the time of year you might see all different coloured trees, blue, lavender, yellow or vibrant purple trees, and white blossom, fields of wild vibrant red poppies or thousands of crops of sunflowers as well as grapes olives and many other fruits.
Ryanair prices fluctuate and there are often unmissable offers but these are rarely at peak periods such as Easter. It's worth to keep checking because the prices change weekly / daily sometimes. Please contact us for further advice on booking or other destination ideas before and after the villa.
Italy is crammed full of gems and sometimes good to plan some nights elsewhere such as Venice or Rome and see a bit of the country as well. If you are flexible with your dates this can also be of benefit booking flights on cheaper days and having some extra time in other places. If you would like any advice or ideas please contact us using the contact form. You can be as flexible as you want booking dates as we dont operate Saturday to Saturday booking like many places do.
