TRAVEL


Below, we have outlined information on flights and transportation. If you have any questions on flights or transportation, please feel free to reach out to us directly.

Getting to Italy

Rome (FCO)


Our recommended option is to fly to Rome and rent a car. The best airport would be Rome–Fiumicino International Airport (FCO).

Distance from the venue: 205km / 2hr 30min by car.

Florence (FLR)


Another option is to fly to Florence and rent a car, however, there are limited flights from the US. The best airport would be Florence Airport, Peretola (FLR).

Distance from the venue: 140km / 1hr 50min by car.

Perugia (PEG)


Perugia is the closest airport to the villa. It is a smaller airport with limited flights, but worth a look if you're looking to cut down on driving time.

Distance from the venue: 45km / 45 min by car

Airport -> Villa

Car Rental


Recommended option (so that you have the freedom to explore both during our week and before/after!)

Renting a car and driving in Italy is very similar to the US! They drive on the right side of the road and Hertz, Enterprise are both at FCO & FLR. The only prerequisite is to acquire an International Driving Permit, which can be done quickly and easily in-person at any AAA location in the US. We found a great guide that explains it better below.

Get Started

Train (Perugia)


If you'd prefer not to drive, you can get near Casa Bruciata by train and arrange pickup from the station.

TrenItalia has a direct train from Roma Tremini Train Station to Perugia that's about 2.5 hours. From there, we can either pick you up or pre-arrange a shuttle pickup (for a fee) with the venue.

Alternatively, the venue can arrange for shuttle pickup directly from Rome or Florence airports. If you'd like to arrange a shuttle pickup from Rome, Florence, or Perugia, please let us know in your RSVP so that we can let the venue know to reach out to you directly to make arrangements.

We recommend booking with Trainline for convenience.
