Florence Airport is very well connected with all the European hubs of the main Air Alliances, with daily direct ﬂights from the main European Destinations. Easy to reach from all over the World with one transfer at most.
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.
Florence is also a key node on the Italian railway network. It has good connections with the main cities in the north, while to the south Rome is only about an hour and a half away. Work on the Bologna-Florence stretch of the high-speed railway line (TAV, Treni Alta Velocità) is at an advanced stage, and a new station is due to be built in Florence.
City bus services (red and white, or blue and grey or orange buses) are run by ATAF and LI-NEA. We remind you to purchase your ticket before you get on the bus or the tram. A 90 minutes ticket costs €1.20 and must be validated in the machines on the bus.
