From Pisa Airport to Florence

The Pisa Airport is the second main airport in Tuscany after the airport in Florence. It often makes sense to fly there and then to reach Florence by either train or bus. At the moment, the train line that connects Pisa Airport to the Pisa Centrale main train station is undergoing work so from the airport you have two choices: take a shuttle to Pisa Centrale and then take a train into Florence's SMN train station or just catch a bus shuttle from Pisa Airport directly to Florence's SMN train station!

We recommend the second and there are a few options of who to book with. Terravision bus from Pisa Airport to Florence takes 70 minutes and is only 5 euros, so it is the good option as opposed to changing bus to train in Pisa. (If you book your Terravision shuttle through this link, we earn a small commission.)

Another option is the Autostrada Bus, similar time and prices - but it has different hours so you might find one that works better than Terravision. The bus goes to SMN train station and some go to the Florence Airport after that (in case you were interested in continuing there or catching a bus from SMN to the Florence airport).

TOURIST BUSES

In order to preserve the city, environment and historic and artistic heritage of Florence, access by tourist buses is regulated by a series of provisions by the local city council. This includes set drop-off and pick-up points and parking lots for tourist busses. For more information, the official website is www.buspass.it/ - as half of the information is in Italian and half in English, we receive lots of requests for help in understanding the whole process. We've written an article where we extract and summarize the most important points on that website, with a clear list as well as map of drop off and pick up points and parking lots for coach buses in Florence. We hope you find it useful!
