Umbria & Le Marche Bicycle Tours - Travel to the Region

Rome is the most convenient arrival and departure city for travellers from abroad. There are two airports. Leonardo da Vinci Airport (at Fiumicino) is used by the major airlines, while Ciampino Airport is used by budget airlines such as Easyjet and Ryanair.

Other airports that may be used to access the region are at Perugia, Florence and Pisa.

Getting to and from the trailheads (Sansepolcro, Spoleto, Perugia, Orvieto, Florence) involves travel between the arrival/departure airport and the nearest mainline railway station or bus station to connect with transport options to and from the trailhead town.

Most inter-city trains leave Rome from Termini Station, while most inter-city buses leave from the main bus station outside Rome Tiburtina railway station. The Metro (line B) connects the two.

From Leonardo da Vinci Airport the most convenient way to get into Rome is to take the Leonardo Express, a direct train service to Termini (½ hr/every ½ hr).

From Ciampino Airport take a Terravision bus (¾ hr/ every hr) which to Termini. You can book online.

Pisa Airport has a railway station – trains run to Florence Santa Maria Novella Station (1½ hr/every hr).

Terravision buses run a regular service from Pisa Airport to Florence Santa Maria Novella Station (1¼ hr / every 1½ hr).

Terravision buses run a regular service from Florence Airport to Florence Santa Maria Novella Station (¼ hr/ every 1½ hr).

From Perugia Airport, take a bus (infrequent) or taxi to Perugia Railway Station Station (½ hr)
