Useful information:

The closest airport is Perugia, however Florence (FLR airport) and Rome (FCO airport) are more accessible flights from the US. Be sure to book your flight 1 day earlier than you want to arrive in Italy. Italy is several hours ahead of us so you will be arriving in Italy the day after you depart the US. I advise departing the US on September 7th (arriving on the 8th) to adjust to time change, and ease of meeting up on time Saturday. I can help you book a hotel in your arrival city for a day of exploring in a big city, or a town close to our villa.

 

  • You must arrive at the villa between 3:30-4pm on Saturday September 9, 2017. We will be leaving for the Medieval festival at 5pm so if you are not going to arrive before that time please email for arrangements. 

I will be happy to help you book hotels for an extended stay if you plan additional travel before/after our week together, for info email Ann Marie.
