We do have several people we can recommend that offer airport transfers. We recommend GianLuca the ' Umbrian Driver' but in case he is already booked, do let us know because we can get in touch with other small companies offering the same services.
The easiest stations for direct train connections to Firenze and Rome are either Terontola (just North of Lake Trasimeno, near Cortona), Perugia Ponte San Giovanni or Foligno (South of Assisi). If you are staying in the South of Umbria you can easily take a train from Orte.
Check on the website: www.trenitalia.it for timetables and reservations. The site is also available in English.
Visiting Florence or Rome by train is much easier and faster than by car. These cities are not easily accessible by car, there is a lot of traffic and finding parking space can be a nightmare.
