Getting to Tuscany by Air

There are multiple ways to get to Tuscany. You can arrive by air, train, tram or automobile.

Flying into Tuscany

Fly into Florence

Most people fly into Florence. The Florence airport (FLR) Aeroporto di Firence Peretoloa (in Florence) formally known as the Amerigo Vespucci Airport is located on the northwest outskirts of Florence, just 4 km from the city center. The airport can be reached from the center of Florence by bus, car or taxi.

If the weather is bad, you maybe be rerouted to another local airport and bused back to Florence. Airports close by include:

- Pisa International Airport (1 hr from Florence)
- Bologna Guglielmo Marconi Airport (1.5 hrs from Florence)

Fly into Pisa 

The Pisa Airport is the second airport in Tuscany and from some destinations, it might make more sense to fly there and then get yourself over to Florence.

The new Pisa Mover shuttle connects Pisa Airport to the Pisa Centrale main train station throughout the day, and from there you can take the train to Florence's SMN train station and be in Florence in about an hour.

There are also bus charter companies that offer service directly from the airport to the SMN train station in Florence. Some of the buses continue on to the Florence Airport after that (in case you are interested in getting to the Florence airport). - Pisa International Airport (1 hr from Florence)

Fly into Rome
