Getting to Florence from the airports
Another popular option is to fly directly to Rome or Milan and take a train from there to Florence’s high-speed railway station (Santa Maria Novella).
You can check timetables and prices in the TGV website or Ferrovie dello Stato. If you book online, it is normally cheaper than buying the ticket directly on their website.
Florence’s historic centre is relatively small and has numerous pedestrian streets, making it difficult to travel to the city’s centre by car. If you prefer this means of transport, take care not to park in a parking street belonging to residents, otherwise, they will tow your car and you will be heavily fined.
