From Florence Airport to San Casciano

Florence's airport Amerigo Vespucci (also known as "Peretola") is 30 Km far from San Casciano in Val di Pesa.

By car

You can rent a car after your arrival as there are some car rental companies in the airport. Make sure you don't arrive when they are closed (usually after midnight), some close at 1 AM.
The journey is very easy as you can see here. Enter Autostrada A1, exit at Firenze-Impruneta than enter the Firenze-Certosa entrance of RA03 (a dual carriageway that connects Florence to Siena). The trip will take about 26 minutes.

Without a car

In the Vespucci airport web site there is a useful video that shows you where to go to reach the different services: bus, taxi, car service with drivers and car rentals.

A) by coach:
Exit the airport and take the ATAF shuttle service (bus number 55, called Volainbus, departures every 30 minutes). This shuttle service will carry you directly to the Autostazione SITA (centre of Florence, beside Florence Railway Station Firenze Santa Maria Novella). It costs 6 euro, takes 26 minutes. It stops two times in Florence: the fist at Firenze SMN train station, the last at Autostazione SITA (coach terminal). You have to get off at the last, very easy, isn't it?
Please note that normal ATAF tickets are not valid for this shuttle service.

Once inside the Autostazione SITA, you have to buy tickets to San Casciano in Val di Pesa, the price is 2.80 euros. Fastest suburban coach lines takes you there in 35 minutes. More information and timetables for Florence-San Casciano bus trip.

Important: since late 2012 the SITA company has been renamed to BusItalia. People and many maps still refer to it by the old name.

B) by taxi:
take a taxi service outside Florence airport. We have asked the price to the two taxi companies and they said price would be about 60-65 euros (price as of 2013); please note there is no fixed fee, price depends on length of time and kilometres. It is advisable to contact them before your arrival so you can book the service in advance. Check those Florentine taxi companies: Socota and Cotafi.
