From the airport, initially take the Ma-19 heading west towards Palma. Turn of at exit 6 onto the Ma-30 in the direction of Inca. Take the first exit at the roundabout onto the Ma-15 and follow this road all the way to Arta. The journey by hire car or taxi should take about one hour.
It should be said that the beautiful historic town of Arta really is best discovered on foot. All the best sights of this lovely old town are all within easy walking distance. The town has a real bohemian vibe and many artists reside here.
