How to get to Tara Nature Retreat 

If you can get to Rome, then you can get to Tara Nature Retreat.

We are 90 min drive from Rome - close enough to be accessible, yet far enough to enjoy peace :).

 

 Tara Nature Retreat is atop an oak forest with a long view. It connects to hiking trails and a cleansing river. It is less than 10 km from the town of Todi, a picturesque medieval Italian town praised by Italians for its food, truffles and wine. 

 

You can get here without a car - simply take a train, bus, or plane to Rome. A shuttle bus service or private driver then takes you to Todi from Rome Tiburtina train/bus station or from Rome Fiumicino airport (FCO).  From Todi, we set you up with a driver.  See details below.

From Rome Fiumcino Airport (FCO), go to the bus station located at Terminal 3 (T3).  Look for the Sulga bus with 'Perugia' as destination (your stop will be 'Todi (Pian di Porto)).

There are three daily shuttles to Todi from Monday to Saturday, and once daily on Sunday/National Holidays. Check at the station and Sulga website below for the track number.

If for some reason you cannot make the Sulga bus connection at FCO airport, consider taking a 30-50 min train to Tiburtina Rome to catch a Flix or Sulga bus there (last Flix bus is at 19:30 most days), or check Trenitalia for a possible connection (see below). Ensure you have enough time.

- We can also arrange for a private driver on your behalf. See the info and cost estimate below.

Suggested route back to Rome FCO Airport:

Take the 8:40, 10:10, or 15:00 Sulga Bus from Todi back to Rome FCO, or 9:10 AM on holidays (e.g. Apr 1, 2024). We'll arrange for your Taxi (for Tara Nature retreats). Ensure enough time to board your flight. 

From Rome Ciampino (CIA) - take a 30-min train connection to Rome Tiburtina Train/Bus Station, and then follow the instructions below.  Have time for transition from train to shuttle bus.  We think Rome FCO is a more convenient airport, however Rome CIA works too!
