Tuscany airports

The Intercontinental Airport Galileo Galilei airport is the main airport in Tuscany. The Amerigo Vespucci airport is the only airport in Florence.


Tuscany airportsTuscany has two international airports, the Galileo Galilei International Airport in Pisa and Amerigo Vespucci Airport, also known as Peretola, in Florence. Located only 80 km apart, the Pisa airport is the larger of the two airports.... Both airports handle flights to major European cities. Pisa handles the bulk of European scheduled flights so it might be easier to find flights into Pisa.

Direct flights from North America are generally more expensive than stopover routes somewhere else in Europe. More affordable fares can be had if one flies non-stop to a major European city such as London or Paris and then takes a Ryan Air (low-fare European airline) flight direct to Pisa. You'll have to change airports in London and Paris, though, as Ryan Air generally uses secondary airports.

The Pisa airport has direct access to both the Firenze-Pisa-Livorno dual carriageway (Pisa Centro - Aeroporto exit), to the Genova-Rosignano A12 motorway (Pisa Centro exit), to the Firenze-Pisa A11 (through the Pisa Nord linking stretch with the A12) and to road SS1 "Aurelia". The terminal is also directly connected to Pisa Central Station by direct train service, with many trains to the Pisa central station and with eight trains a day from the Pisa airport to the main Florence train station. The railway terminal is located just outside the departures hall. You can also reach the center of Pisa with bus or taxi service.

The Florence airport also has direct access to the Firenze-Pisa A11 motorway as well as to the A1 "Autostrada del Sole". The airport is located on the north western edge of Florence; taxis and a bus shuttle connect the airport to Florence's historical center.

Grosseto Airport
Grosseto airport was established as a major military facility before being opened to civil aviation traffic in the early 1960s, in response to the needs of the growing tourist industry.

This required an initial intervention by local government bodies to fence off the civilian area, construct an apron and set up a temporary airfield.
In the years from 1965 to 1977, traffic built up to a total of 16,000 passengers a year.
In the same period, the Punta Ala area was also being developed, generating air traffic between Milan and Grosseto and the Swedish market was showing an interest in Castiglione della Pescaia.

It was there that the Villaggio Hotel Riva del Sole was built.
Subsequently, development of the territorial economy, especially the tourist sector, prompted radical improvements to overcome the now serious restrictions imposed by the existing primary structures.

For that reason, S.E.A.M. was set up in 1989 to manage the airport. As its name implies, the company is in the centre of the Maremma, the area of Tuscany and Lazio with outstanding environmental, tourist, scenic, archaeological, spa and hot springs, hunting and natural history attractions.
In 2000, the new airport was inaugurated.
After extension of the apron and car parking areas, it will be able to cater for an overall traffic of up to 100,000 passengers a year.
