From Florence Airport Amerigo Vespucci
From the Florence airport, you can get to downtown Florence either with a taxi or with the special “VOLA IN BUS” bus shuttle (run by BusItalia). You can take this bus from the airport to the central Santa Maria Novella train station (SMN). It takes about 20 minutes, sometimes a little more if there is heavy traffic. The service runs daily, including Sundays and holidays.
Departures from the airport are every 30 min between 6.00 am to 8.30 pm, then every hour until 11.30 pm. If you arrive later than this, you’ll have to take a taxi.
Departures from the city center (SMN train station) are every 30 min between 5.30 am to 8.00 pm, then every hour up until 11.00 pm.
Tickets can be purchased directly on board from the driver. A one-way ticket costs 6 euro.
If you find a group of 4/5 persons you can take a taxi for the center, it’s more convenient and fastest.
