The Amerigo Vespucci International Airport is located on the outskirts of Florence, just 5 kilometres from the city centre, and serves both international, European and local flights. It a modern airport with very comfortable and spacious amenities aimed at making your travelling as comfortable and easy as possible. The main attraction of the airport is itís close location to the city and the ease of getting into the city from it, via train, bus or taxi. It is 1 of the 2 main airports in the Tuscany region of Italy and is therefore very popular for holiday airlines with regular flights from all major airports running even more frequently in the peak seasons.
Once you have landed at the airport and quickly passed through the arrivals procedure, there are many different easy and cost effective ways to get into the city centre. The Voainubus Airport and Shuttle Bus ATAF 062 is readily and frequently available from the arrivals door, and transfers you directly to Florence town centre. If you are heading for somewhere outside the city centre, as is often the case, then the bus station is located right next to the train station and you can either take the train to your destination, of the superb bus infrastructure with many ATAF bus stops located across the city will be able to get you to your destination.
There are option options too. If you prefer an easier and more independent option then there is a very highly recommended taxi service. There are 2 companies which operate in Venice: Radiotaxi and Taxi Socata, which both provide an equally good service with little changes in price between the 2, and it is extremely easy to find one to take you to your destination. Whichever way you choose to travel, it is extremely easy to quickly get settled in to enjoy such a brilliant and inspiring city which lies before you.
We had a great time!
