HOW TO REACH PERUGIA
Perugia is connected to the rest of the country by a well developed network of roads. The two major arterial roads are the SS3bis (also called E45), which runs along the Tiber valley, and the SS75bis, called “Raccordo Perugia-Bettolle”. The A1 The Rome – Florence motorway (the “Autostrada del Sole”), skirts the western borders of Umbria and is connected to Perugia by the “Raccordo Perugia-Bettolle”.
From the north (Milan, Florence), the best exit for Perugia on the A1 motorway at Valdichiana, where the superstrada SS75bis branches into Umbria at Lake Trasimene and continues towards Perugia. From Rome travelling northwards along the A1 motorway the best exit for reaching Perugia is at Orte, which is connected to the regional capital at first by the ss204 to Terni and then by the E45 (or SS3bis) from Terni to Perugia.
The A14 motorway down the Adriatic coast of Italy has an exit at Cesena for the E45 “superstrada” to Città di Castello and Perugia.
The SS75bis has five exits for Perugia (from North): Perugia-Ferro di Cavallo, Perugia-Madonna Alta, Perugia-San Faustino (best to reach the congress venue), Perugia-Prepo and Perugia-Piscille.
