An international stopover a few miles from Santa Maria Novella
Located about 9 kilometres from the Tuscan capital and 5.25 kilometres as the crow flies from the Florence Santa Maria Novella station, the Florence-Peretola Airport is named after the Florentine navigator Amerigo Vespucci, born in Peretola, and is located near the Novoli district. Open to both domestic and international passenger traffic, it was inaugurated in 1931 and today has 40 check-in desks, 10 boarding gates and is equipped with a 1,560 metre long and 30 metre wide asphalt runway.
You can get to the airport from the historical centre with the T2 Line of the Florence tram network. The connection with the station is also ensured by the Vola in Bus bus service managed by ATAF and Busitalia. From the cities of Prato,Pistoia, Montecatini Terme and Pisa Airport, a FlyBus service operated by Compagnia Toscana Trasporti, which through the local Vaibus also connects the airport with Lucca and Viareggio, is available. It is also connected to the A1 Milan-Naples motorway with the exit for northern Florence and to the A11 motorway. In addition, a new railway station is being designed in the vicinity of the airport, along the Florence-Pisa-Livorno route, at the height of Viale Guidoni and the tram stop of the same name.
