Transportation

How to get around the Belpaese

A vacation in Italy is a total sensory and cultural immersion, a series of experiences and memories to last a lifetime. Traveling to and around the country is much easier than one might think. There is a myth that Italian drivers are crazy... untrue! They are certainly aggressive, but they are also very skilled. When you first arrive in Italy everything looks different. The cars are very small, the streets are very narrow, everything looks like it is going at super-fast speed and you are in slow motion. This may happen because of jet-lag but, honestly, things are rather different there.

Airports

Italy is simply loaded with treasures, so it is not hard to see why Italy is one of the world's most heavily visited countries; it is for this reason Italy has many international airports.

The country has 133 airports, all located outside of the city, but they offer transportation, shuttle buses and trains, that for a small fee will take you into the city. In Rome the "Leonardo Express" will take you from the airport of Fiumicino to the rail station, Stazione Termini. From there you can take a taxi to your final destination. Airports are filled with signs that will lead you to the shuttle's station. Tickets can be bought on the premises. The Volainubus Airport Shuttle connects Vespucci Airport to downtown Florence. Tickets are purchased on board and cost 4 Euros. Galileo Galilei, Pisa's airport, has direct train services to Florence. The 80 km trip costs around 5 Euros.
