    Transportation/ How to get to the airport

    Thanks to its proximity to Florence, you can arrive at the airport in about 15 minutes from the city centre. Follow Viale Guidoni up to the A11, the motorway to Pisa. The airport is located off the motorway junction. Visit our Italy driving guide to familiarise yourself with the traffic regulations in the country.

    Local Florence bus company, ATAF, runs coach services from the central railway station (Florence's Piazza Stazione) to the airport every half an hour; the journey takes approximately 25 minutes. Taxis also operate between the airport and the city. Taxi stances are situated outside the Arrivals Terminal.

    Parking tips

    At the airport, parking is allowed at the short-stay car park for free for 20 minutes. The paid, long-stay car park provides 24 hours security.

    The historical centre of Florence, as in many Italian cities, is a ZTL zone (Limited Traffic Zone). Only cars with a residential permit can access the zone. The ZTL is in operation from 7:30am to 7:30 pm on weekdays and from 7:30am to 6pm on Saturdays. Entering the zone within these times without the special permit results in a high fine. If your hotel is located within the ZTL zone, make sure to pass your car plate numbers to the hotel.

    There is a number of paid car parks dotted around the city. On-street parking is available in the residential area, a 10 to 20-minute walk to the historical centre. Visitors can park their vehicles only in blue parking bays. The white ones are reserved for residents, and the yellow ones are handicapped parking spaces. Useful links
