How to get to Cortona

by plane

Florence [FLR], Perugia [PEG], and Pisa airports [PSA] are the closest ones; Rome Fiumicino [FCO], Milan Malpensa [MXP], Milan Linate [LIN], and Bologna [BLQ] airports are also convenient - e.g. there are fast shuttle trains (no. 8 & no. 128) from Fiumicino Aeroporto directly to both Roma Termini and Roma Tiburtina rail stations [Note: for many destinations, transferring at Roma Tiburtina is faster and more convenient than Roma Termini]. In Milan, take the direct shuttle bus from the Malpensa airport to the Milano Centrale train station if you are transferring to a train; if you are going to stay in downtown Milano instead of taking a train immediately to another city there's an express shuttle which goes to several of the metro (subway) stations. In Florence, take the direct shuttle bus from the airport to the Santa Maria Novella (Firenze S.M.N.) train station.

by train

Train tickets can be purchased directly at any departure rail station. Remember that tickets must be stamped by the yellow devices located inside the station before getting on the train.

Cortona is on the line Florence - Rome. You should check for your train to stop either at the Terontola-Cortona station or the Camucia-Cortona station. You can view the italian railways timetable or the german railways timetable in order to find a train and check that it actually stops in one of the above stations.

The Terontola station is 11 km. from Cortona and the Camucia station is 5 km. from Cortona. There are regular bus service between Cortona and the rail stations. Plase note that the service is less frequent on sundays and that tickets must be purchased at the newspaper stand in Camucia or at the cafeteria in front of the rail station in Terontola and not on the bus. Here you find a complete bus schedule (only in Italian, sorry) and you may have a look at
the web-page of turism in Cortona.

by car

From A1 (either north- or southbound) take the Valdichiana exit. After you pay your toll, turn to the right. At 0.5 km from the tollbooth take the Perugia Superstrada (direction Perugia). Continue on it for 12.3 km to the Cortona/Camucia exit. In just under 3 km you'll see Cortona on the hill. Follow the signs to Cortona; about 7 km further you'll be at the city walls.

How to get to the Palazzone (by walk !)

To arrive at the Palazzone, the 16th century Villa Passerini, you should take the usual road for access to Cortona and just before coming into town you will find a place where three roads meet; here you take the little road going down to the right which has a yellow sign saying "Il Palazzone"; taking this road that leads to Contesse you will come to a fork where there is another yellow sign and go left for the Palazzone. It is on the South-East of Cortona and it is about 2 km from the town. It will be open on Sunday 19th starting from 16 p.m. and till 22 p.m. As there is no bus connection between Cortona and the Palazzone, participants will enjoy a wonderful walk in the Tuscan country.
