Travel to Florence

Florence Airport

Florence Airport (Amerigo Vespucci) is served by around forty domestic and international flights each day. The airport is located 4km north-west of Florence, in the direction of Prato. The local companies SITA and ATAF run a bus service between the airport and Santa Maria Novella Station (they stop at the SITA bus station - see below).

Pisa Airport

Budget UK travellers, however, will be more interested in nearby Pisa Airport, named Galileo Galilei, which is served by budget airlines Ryanair, Easyjet and Thomsonfly from a range of UK regional airports.

Direct bus connections run from Pisa Airport to Florence (Santa Maria Novella Station); a journey that takes around 70 minutes.

Train services also connect the airport with Florence.


Florence is well-connected to Italy's rail network. Frequent services run from Florence's principal station, Stazione Santa Maria Novella, to the other major Italian cities (Rome is under two hours away). Next to the basilica of the same name, the station is convenient for the centre of Florence and within walking distance of many hotels. A few services (mostly night-time ones) stop at Campo di Marte, a secondary station to the east of Florence city centre.

Bus and Coach

Bus and coach services connect Florence to the rest of Tuscany and Italy. Buses stop in various locations close to Stazione Santa Maria Novella. SITA, who run many regional services, have their own bus station (the Autostazione Sita) on Via Santa Caterina da Siena, a few yards from the railway station.
