Practicals

How to reach Florence
  • If you arrive at Florence International Airport Peretola (FLR), take T2 line tramway to get to Alamanni Stazione (next to Santa Maria Novella Florence Central Station).
  • If you arrive at Pisa International Galileo Galilei Airport (PSA), reach the Pisa Central Station with the PISAMOVER Airport and take a train (R-regionale or RV-regionale veloce with Trenitalia) for Santa Maria Novella Florence Central Station. Or you can get a Flixbus from Pisa Airport to Florence Villa Costanza and then, take T1 line tramway to Alamanni Stazione. 
  • If you arrive at Bologna International Guglielmo Marconi Airport (BLQ), reach the Bologna Central Station with the Marconi Express monorail and take a high speed train (Trenitalia / Italo) to Santa Maria Novella Florence Central Station. Or you can get an Appennino Shuttle from Bologna Airpot to get directly to Santa Maria Novella Florence Central Station. Flixbus and Itabus buses depart from Bologna Central Station and arrive at Florence Villa Costanza, so you need to get  T1 line tramway to Alamanni Stazione.
  • You can check on Gmaps or Moovit (or the website) for Tramway lines and timetables. We suggest you to check trains and Pisa mover timetables on Trenitalia / Italo apps or websites and to buy tickets from there, as well as for Flixbus and Itabus on their websites. You may buy Appennino Shuttle tickets on its website or on Trainline app. For Marconi Express you can buy tickets on its website or just slide your contactless card at the turnstiles on the moment.
  • Since Florence Airport (FLR) is not well connected, we highly recommend you to look for flights arriving in Pisa (PSA) or Bologna (BLQ).
