Pisa to Florence?


Myself and my wife are visiting Florence in a few days. We are flying into Pisa and have a hotel booked in Florence. We are arriving at 9.30 am. I have a few questions in regards to transport from Pisa to Florence.

How far is Pisa from Florence?

How much would a taxi cost from pisa to Florence?

How much would a train or coach cost?

Is it easy to get the coach or train from pisa to Florence?

Where would I go after arriving in Pisa to get the train or Coach to Pisa?

Would I have to pre book a coach or train?

Help on any of these questions would be much appreciated.

It is about 100 km (60 miles) from Pisa to Florence, so a taxi would cost maybe €200 (you would have to pay for it to return to Pisa).

There are trains from Pisa Airport direct to Florence every two hours (09.03, 11.03, etc) costing €5.90. There is also a more frequent service by taking a train from Pisa Airport to Pisa Central and catching a train to Florence there.

At Pisa Airport, just follow the signs to the trains and buy your tickets. There are no seat reservations on these trains and tickets cannot sell out. Before you get on the train, time-stamp your tickets in a yellow machine at the station.

Taxi from Pisa airport to Florence will cost about 250 euros (this is what it cost 2 years ago), the train, as sydneynick says, is 5.90 euros and the bus is about the same price.

Sydneynick has explained how to take the train from Pisa Airport to Florence, but here's a link that also deals with the topic -


The station at the airport is directly outside the terminal, at the left hand end as you face the exit, and on the same level.

If the train from the airport doesn't go through to Florence, you'll probably have to change platforms at Pisa Central. If you've got baggage, there's a lift at one end (if I recall correctly, it's at the back of the train as you arrive from the airport).

I'd recommend the train - it's so convenient with the station right outside the airport in Pisa.

We flew into Pisa on our way to Florence a couple of years ago. We took the train from Pisa airport to Pisa Centrale (don't forget to validate your tickets before getting on board). We then left our cases in left luggage at Pisa Centrale and walked into town to see the tower, cathedral, etc before returning to collect our luggage and catch the train to Florence.
