Getting to Assisi by Car:
From the north (Milan, Florence), the best exit for Assisi on the A1 motorway at Valdichiana, where the superstrada SS75bis branches into Umbria at Lake Trasimene and continues towards Perugia-Assisi.
From Rome travelling northwards along the A1 motorway the best exit for reaching Assisi 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-Assisi.
The A14 motorway down the Adriatic coast of Italy has an exit at Cesena for the E45 "superstrada" to Città di Castello and Perugia-Assisi
Getting to Assisi by Train:
From the North, the main line between Florence and Rome has a station at Terontola (on the branch line to Lake Trasimene, Perugia, Assisi, Spello, and Foligno), so coming from Florence take one of the dozen daily trains to Terontola/Cortona (1'/2 hr.) that meet up with a connecting train to Assisi/S.Maria degli ANgeli (45 to 60 min.).
From the South, the main line between Rome and Ancona has a station at Foligno (on the branch line to Spello, Assisi, Perugia and Lake Trasimene), so coming from Rome, take one of the nine daily trains on the line to Ancona, stop at Foligno (1 hr., 40 min. to 2 hr.), where you can transfer to a Perugia-bound train (10 to 15 min.).
All the cited lines are part of the FS state-run railway system and stop at a station on Santa MAria degli Angeli, well away from the historic center (about 3km) but a 30-minute ride on buses from the center of town (C Line). Bus services leave from the forecourt outside the station and drop you in Piazza Matteotti. The train station is far 1 km from Hotel Cristallo
