The linear metropolis
The Arno Valley connects some of the Tuscan chief towns. Between Florence and Pisa the valley looks like a single metropolis with two airports at either end.
All major world metropolises are served by two or more airports. Tuscany is no exception, with two airports located only 80 kilometres apart: Pisa Airport, by the coast, with a vocation as Tuscany’s regional airport, and Florence Airport, serving mainly as the regional capital’s city airport. The distance between Pisa (airport) and Florence can be covered in only 45/60 minutes depending on the means of transport – train, coach or car (via the dual carriageway or motorway).
Pisa Airport has direct access to both the dual carriageway and the motorway, and the Pisa Aeroporto railway station is perfectly connected to the Italian Railway Network
Pisa-Florence by car Florence is only 80 km from Pisa and can easily be reached via the Florence-Pisa-Livorno dual carriageway or the A11 motorway, both directly connected to Pisa Airport.
