How to get here
Pisa has an international airport with daily
flights to London and Munich, as well as to Rome, Milan, and other important
Italian cities. The timetable of incoming and outgoing flights is available
at the site of Pisa airport.
The airport is on the outskirts of the town, approximately 3 km from the center. The most convenient way to reach the center is probably by taxi. Taxis are located near the "Arrivals" exit of the air terminal. If there is no taxi out there, you may call the non-stop radio taxi service by dialing 050 541600. As an alternative you can take the city bus number 3 and get off at piazza della Stazione (Railway Station square), then take the city bus number 2 and get off at the bus stop in via F. Buonarroti.
