To make your trip as enjoyable as possible, one option is to work with a travel agent, whether you are going alone or as a group.  A travel agent can give you all the flight information you need and can make reservations for you not only with air travel but with train travel as well. Travel insurance is strongly recommended in the event of a medical emergency or circumstances that cause you to cancel or interrupt your trip.



Unless you are planning a longer vacation in Europe prior to the retreat, we suggest that you arrive by air at Rome Fiumicino Airport and then take the train to Assisi. There is a train station inside the Rome airport where you can buy your tickets to Assisi.  You will have to change trains at Rome Termini station. The whole trip from the airport to Assisi with stops and changes is under 4 hours. We will pick you up at the train station in Assisi. 


If you are arriving in Rome on the day of the retreat we suggest you choose a flight that arrives by 11:30 a.m. so you have time to leisurely get to Assisi.  An alternative plan is to arrive a few days before the retreat in order to spend a few days in Rome and recover from jet lag before the retreat.
