Pisa Airport

Pisa Airport

Pisa International Airport (PSA) is also known as Galileo Galilei Airport, and is one of Tuscany’s most important airports. Every year, 5 million passengers pass through its terminals.

Located just 0.62 miles (1 km) from Pisa and very close to the coast, Galileo Galilei Airport has become one of the most popular airports to fly to, especially with low-cost carriers. From here, tourists can easily get to Pisa and to the whole central region of Italy.
