Airports in Florence

Amerigo Vespucci Airport (FLR)


Florence Peretola Airport is located three miles (5km) northwest of Florence.

Getting to the city

The airport is connected with the city by a bus service from the central railway station every half hour, operated by the local Florence city bus company ATAF. The bus is called the VolaInBus and runs from 6am to 11:30pm. The route typically takes 20-25 minutes and you can buy a ticket directly from the bus driver or from newsagents and coffee bars in the airport. The tickets cost about €6 for a single trip or about €10 for a round trip. Note: you must buy roundtrip tickets before boarding the bus, not from the bus driver.


GMT +1 (GMT +2 between the last Sunday in March and the Saturday before the last Sunday in October).
