Getting There

 

If you plan to take a train or bus to Perugia, you must let us know via email your estimated time of arrival, so a staff member is available to drive to Perugia to meet you.

Arrangements for direct pick-ups and drop offs at Fiumicino Airport in Rome approximately 2 1/2 hours from Corciano (60 Euros), must be made in advance in addition to residency fee. We must have the date, airline, flight number and time of arrival/departure for airport transports. 

A free parking space, steps from your room, is available if you choose to rent a car. Car rental service is available at the railway station in Perugia, or you may wish to rent a car for your own excursions to locations outside those included with your residency (2019 rates approximately $40 per day).

I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; We must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.
