Florence airport is located 8 km from the city centre, approximately 30 minutes by taxi. Taxis can be found at the taxi stand outside the arrivals terminal; no reservation is needed. A taxi ride from the airport costs about €20 and takes approximately 25/30 minutes.
A tramway (line T2) connects the airport to the city centre. Trams leave from the airport terminal and take 20 minutes to the main railway station. One-way tickets can be bought from vending machines at the tram stop for €1.50. Be sure to stamp (or “validate”) your ticket via the machines as soon as you board the tram.

From the central railway station:
Take bus n. 7 at the bus stop Stazione Nazionale in the direction “Fiesole Piazza Mino”, get off at the stop ‘San Domenico 01’. For bus routes and timetables consult the official timetable.
Bus tickets are sold outside the railway station, at Autolinee Toscane ticket kiosks and vending machines, tobacconists (tabacchi), newspaper kiosks (edicole), and most cafes (bar). They must be bought before boarding and stamped using the machine on the bus. A ticket costs €1.50 and it is valid for 90 minutes. Bus tickets can be purchased also on board (€ 2.50), but the driver is not obliged to give change.
