Travel to Florence

How to reach Florence

By plane
The Florence and Pisa airports are served by several international airlines and they are daily connected to most of the main Italian and European Airports.
The distance between the Florence airport “Amerigo Vespucci” (also named "Peretola Airport") and the city centre is 4 km. For transport to downtown there is either a swift shuttle service (cost € 4.50) between the Arrivals side of the airport and the centre of Florence running every 30 minutes practically all day long, or taxis   (cost about € 25).
Pisa airport "G. Galilei"    is connected to the Central Railway Station "Firenze - Santa Maria Novella" by a shuttle train service operating every hour (less than an hour ride).

By train
International trains (EC) and fast-trains (ES,IC) arrive in Florence at the Central Railway Station "Firenze - Santa Maria Novella", which is located just in front of the Conference centre. Eurostar trains connect Florence with Rome (1 hr and 35 min) and Milan (2 hrs and 45 min). Information can be found on the Trenitalia   website.

By car
The A1 motorway, the main road artery linking the north and south of the country, runs past Florence, which has four exits. A third lane is currently being built on the Barberino-Incisa stretch of the A1. The A11 motorway and the Florence-Pisa-Livorno (FI-PI-LI) dual carriageway link the city with the west (Tyrrhenian Sea) coast.
If you decide to reach Florence by car, take into account that there are no free parking place downtown, and parking can turn rather expensive.
