Alternatively, the airport of Pisa is located 80Km from the city centre of Florence and is connected to the Tuscan capital by train (every hour) and Terravision bus (full flight coverage with 18 return journeys). Bologna airport offers another option, with the recently upgraded Freccia Rossa train service providing an onward journey time of 35 mins from Bologna to Florence.
