Airports in Tuscany
Pisa International Airport is the gateway to those holidaying in Tuscany. It is situated less than a mile (1km) from Pisa's iconic landmark, the Leaning Tower of Pisa and it is just 37 miles (60km) from Florence.
The airport boasts an impressive array of passenger amenities, but can get quite crowded during peak holiday periods. A number of low-cost carriers offer cheap flights to Pisa International Airport making it very accessible and a destination of choice for those wanting a relaxing holiday in Italy.
The airport is located one mile (2km) north-east of Pisa, and 50 miles (80km) west of Florence.
Getting to the city
Train: The railway terminal is connected to the terminal's check-in hall by a 40m covered walkway. There are direct lines to Pisa Central Station and Florence, daily. Buy tickets at the information office in the arrivals hall. There is also a direct shuttle from Pisa International Airport to Pisa Central Station that costs €1.10 and runs every 30 minutes between 1.03am and 10.20pm during the week and slightly less regularly on Sundays and public holidays.
Taxis: The Pisa Taxi Cooperative operates taxis to and from the airport. Fares into central Pisa range from €5.70 to €8 and there is an added surcharge of €2.30 on Sundays and public holidays. The airport's taxi stand is in front of the terminal just after the arrivals exit. It generally takes about five to ten minutes to get from the airport to Pisa Centrale railway station.
Bus: Buses run to and from Pisa to destinations across Pisa as well as Tuscan destinations such as Firenze, Siena, Lucca and Viareggio.
