We highly recommend using the airport in Pisa – the Galileo Galilei International Airport, code PSA, if you are traveling by air in to join us. There are flights to Pisa directly from all over Europe and from NYC both with low cost airlines and large/ national airlines. Once in Pisa you can opt to rent a car, take a cab (it is just a 15 minute drive) or take the train shuttle to the train station, then the bus directly to Marina di Pisa per the instructions below.
Another option is to fly to Florence – the Firenze Peretola Airport, and then from there, either take a shuttle bus to the Airport in Pisa (low cost carriers such as Ryan Air etc. will sell you the discounted bus tickets on the plane or in the arrival area) or you can take the Busitalia bus to center of Florence (www.fsbusitalia.it
) and then from the Santa Maria Novella Station the train to Pisa Centrale, and from there the bus to Marina di Pisa. It takes approximately 30 minutes from Peretola Airport to Florence centre and then an hour train ride to the Pisa Centrale station.
If you are flying in to Rome or Milan, take the train to Pisa Centrale then follow the instructions below.
