Located between Milan, Rome and Venice, Florence is well connected and easily accessible from the main international airports.
The easiest way to get to Florence is to fly to Florence Airport or to Pisa International Airport, located 81 km west of Florence
The Pisa Airport (PSA) is the main airport in Tuscany. Find out how to get to Florence from Pisa International Airport.
Florence Airport (Aeroporto di Firenze-Peretola) is the second most important airport of Tuscany. Find out how to get to the city centre from the airport.
Another popular option is to fly directly to Rome, Milan or Bologna and take a train from there to Florence’s high-speed railway station (Santa Maria Novella).
You can check timetables and prices in the Trenitalia website or Ferrovie dello Stato. If you book online, it is normally cheaper than buying the ticket directly on their website.
Florence’s historic centre is relatively small and has numerous pedestrian streets, making it difficult to travel to the city’s centre by car. If you prefer this means of transport, take care not to park in a parking street belonging to residents, otherwise, they will tow your car and you will be heavily fined.
If you would like to visit other towns and villages in Tuscany like Siena, Lucca or Pisa, you can either hire a car or book a half-day or full day trips from Florence.
Urban transport is managed by Autolinee Toscane.
The ticket is also valid on the tramway network: ordinary (a single use 90 minutes ticket) and multiple-ride tickets (four 90 minutes rides on one single ticket) can be purchased from authorized sales points and at the train station.
