Getting there and around
The best way to get to Florence is by train, as it is one of the main stops on the high-speed train line. To get to the other towns and villages, and to tour the countryside you will need a car – as local train and bus services are not always frequent. The main airport is the Pisa International Airport Galileo Galilei, whilst the Florence one is smaller but well connected to all the major Italian towns. Livorno is the main port, where ferries to Sardinia and Tuscan islands departure.
