Obviously, Pescara being in Abruzzo, the National Airport of Abruzzo is the most convenient as there is only a 40min. drive to your accommodation but there are other routes to arrive in Italy as seen above via Rome, Ancona or Naples, and with public transport not being too expensive, offer viable alternatives eg. Di Fonzo and Rosato run direct services from Fiumicino to Pescara, Lanciano and Vasto (see Coach Service below).

Whether arriving in Pescara, Ancona, Rome or elsewhere there will be the need for a further journey to your final destination. It is possible to use the services of trains and buses, but as it will be necessary to hire a car to discover Abruzzo properly it is recommended to budget for one and pick it up at the airport - preferably booking it on-line at the same time as your flights, receiving any discount or benefits on offer. More detailed information can be found by following the links below.

Should you prefer to travel from Rome by coach it would be possible to be taxied to your accomodation and rent a car at a later date.
