Connections to and from Pisa airport

How to go from the airport to the centre of Pisa and vice versa? Are there buses from Pisa airport to Siena? How long does it take to get there by car from Florence?

In the information below you will find the answer to all your questions about transport at Pisa airport.

How to get from Pisa airport to the city centre

Very close to the city centre, Pisa airport could not be easier to get to! If you do not have heavy luggage you can even walk there, however we do not recommend this as the roads in the surroundings are usually very busy.

The most convenient way to get to the centre of Pisa from the airport is the People Mover, an automatic shuttle that connects the airport to the central railway station in just 5 minutes; from there you can continue on foot or take a local bus.

The People Mover runs from early in the morning until midnight; the frequency of rides ranges from one every 5 minutes at peak times to one every 15 minutes at off-peak times. The stop is less than 40 metres from the exit of the passenger terminal and is well signposted.

Fast and convenient, the People Mover is not exactly cheap. If you are a small group of 3-4 people, consider a taxi: for a few euros more, you can be taken directly to your hotel. Alternatively, you can take one of the city buses that run in the vicinity of the airport.

The location of Pisa airport is also strategic for those travelling by car: situated close to the Firenze-Pisa highway and a short distance from the Pisa Centro motorway exit on the A12 Genova – Rosignano, it can be reached quickly from several directions.

From the airport to the centre, just drive along Viale dell’Aeroporto and the San Giusto flyover: 5-10 minutes and you will be at your destination.

Connections with other localities

Pisa Airport guarantees good connections to the main locations in northern Tuscany.

From the bus station at the exit of the terminal there are direct buses to Florence, Lucca and Viareggio: the journey time is one hour for the first two locations, one and a half hours for Viareggio; there is also a direct connection to Florence airport.

If you need to reach other locations or if the bus waiting time is too long, you can reach the railway station with the People Mover and from there travel by train. Pisa is connected to Florence by regional trains.

On the other hand, those who opt for car rental at Pisa airport can enjoy the maximum freedom of a private vehicle and the fast connections guaranteed by the highways and motorways that cover the area. It only takes half an hour to reach the beaches of Versilia and an hour to Florence; in an hour and a half or less you can reach the Chianti region if you are going east or Siena if you are going south.
