If travelling from Rome airports, the best way to reach us is by coach - there is a direct coach from Rome airport going to Pescara which also stops in Torre dei Passeri, where we will pick you up. We do not recommend taking the train as it is much slower than coaches due to its numerous stops en route. If you need help with reserving your coach, let us know!
If you want the freedom of travelling on your own and have a means to explore the area, reaching us by car is easy as there is a direct motorway from Rome which will take only 90 minutes or less. Although Rome city centre is just about 1 hour away, Fiumicino and Ciampino airports are on the other side and a little farther away, so travelling time is a little over 2 hours.
