It can reach Alba Fucens along highway A24-A25 towards Pescara , if you go to Rome or L'Aquila, if you come from Pescara instead just take the A25 towards Rome.
The outputs at toll of both paths will take place at Avezzano or Magliano dei Marsi .
Once you leave the highway, it will be easy to frame the isolated hill of Alba in the northwest corner of the plain of Fucino. In order to access to the country contrary to what happened in the past, where the Tiburtina Valeria joined Alba Fucens in Rome directly up the hill from the West, today we must move to the North-Eastern side of the hill, along the "Strada Panoramica" to the junction near the resort Arci , identifiable by the presence of the ruins the Roman aqueduct. At this point take the road that goes back the hill on the left if coming from Avezzano, to the right if Coming from Magliano dei Marsi, you will enter the country through the ancient port of Massa.


The Hill of Alba Fucens is located on the edge of the riverbed of the North-West Fucino, large and fertile plateau in the heart of Abruzzo enclosed between the highest peaks of the Central Apennines (M.Velino m. 2486; Gran Sasso m. 2914; Maiella m. 2795).
This significant rises very gently and 700 meters from the plateau of the Fucino reaches 1022 meters in the highest point, where today we can see the ruins of the village of Alba and medieval castle of the Orsini. Apart from this summit the hill he has two more: the hill to the south of S. Peter (mt. 1000), to the east the Pettorino (mt. 995). The three hills form a natural barrier defense in place in the middle of the plateau, the "Plan of Civita", a valley width of about m. 700.  The topography and the location of Alba makes a strategic place from a military point of view and control the surrounding area so much foster the presence of human civilizations that populated and still populate the hill . This persistence of life of course, is due also to rare beauty of the place :
 dominated to the north by the mountain range of the Velino, from the Alba hill you can see the plans Palentini, the river Imele-Salto, the entrance of the Roveto Valley , the step of Fonte Capo la Maina leading in the plain of the Rocche and Forca Caruso . If , with a little fantasy, we were to  imagine the slopes to the south washed by a lake , what  was   Fucino  , which made the milder climate and the hill covered with a rich flora Mediterranean (mentioned in ancient sources, and now almost disappearance) we can account for why  the Romans utilizzassero this area also as a resort. Another element that makes suggestive  the albense relief is given by its geographical location than the Italian peninsula.  Situated, in fact, at halfway between the Tyrrhenian and the Adriatic sea, Alba Fucens can be reached in about an hour's drive from L'Aquila, Pescara, Chieti, Teramo and the capital itself . This location made it an important node in the past communications and traffic, being    placed in the middle of intersections important roads that connected with the Abruzzo Lazio and Molise , Marche and Campania. The relatively short distance from Rome and from major urban centers of the region caused him to come and enjoy of obvious advantages in terms of social and economic development. Today, all these qualities have been bequeathed to the nearby Avezzano, thriving virtual city, capital and center of gravity economic and administrative center of the Marsica, located on the slopes to the south of the hill.     However Fucens Alba, now pleasant and quiet village, has preserved the beauty and harmony that will be added to the charm of the mystery of an area to be discovered
