Getting to Florence
Florence is well-connected with the rest of Italy and with Europe, and is easy to get to by air or train. The Florence Airport (FLR), Peretola (also known as Amerigo Vespucci Airport) is only 5 km from the city center, and the central train station is directly across the street from the congress center.
Other flights also arrive at Pisa’s Galileo Galileo airport, which is 80 minutes away by train. Pisa is a central Italian hub and flights arrive from many European centers. You could also fly into Bologna and then take a train south. Learn more about transportation to and within Florence.
Florence is a key node on the Italian railway network. It has good connections with the main cities in the north, while to the south Rome is only about an hour and a half away. The A1 motorway, the main road artery linking the north and south of the country, runs past Florence and has four exits.
