How to get there
Florence-Peretola International Airport is 6km outside of the city, connected by fast and frequent trams to the city centre. Tram tickets cost 1.50€ each way, and can be bought from kiosks on the platform.
Trains from Rome, Milan, Pisa and other major European cities arrive at Santa Maria Novella Station, also known as Stazione Centrale, which is located a ten-minute walk from the historic centre. There are taxis (Uber doesn’t exist here) and somewhat unreliable busses to get around town, but Florence is a small city, best enjoyed by foot where possible.
