Flying into Florence’s Amerigo Vespucci Airport (FLR)

The Florence Airport is connected to some of Europe's major airports such as Amsterdam, Barcelona, Brussels, Bucharest, Frankfurt, Geneva, London Gatwick, Madrid, Munich, Paris Charles de Gaulle and Vienna. There are also flights to and from the following Italian cities: Bologna, Cagliari, Catania, Milan Malpensa, Olbia, Palermo, Rome Fiumicino, Turin and Verona.

Almost all major airlines service Florence either directly or through codeshare. In searching for flights, consider also flying into Pisa, Tuscany’s other major airport. That may produce more flight options and a lower ticket costs from some departure cities/countries. Regular buses connect Pisa to the center of Florence.

Florence’s airport is located 4km’s from downtown and can be reached in about 15 minutes by taxi, and in about 20 minutes with the Busitalia SITA Nord "Vola in Bus" bus shuttle operating between the airport and the central railway station of Santa Maria Novella. The cost is 6 euros and it departs every 30 minutes between 5:30 am and 8:30 pm then every hour until 11:45 pm. Taxi’s are also available.

The conference will be held in the Palazzo Coppini in the heart of Florence. Several hotels can be found nearby along with many other options for accommodation - from apartments to B&B’s and hostels.

Florence in October

October in Italy is a beautiful time of year. Daily temperatures range from a low of 14C overnight to between 19C and 24C as a high temperature. However, the weather and temperatures can be quite changeable at this time of year - anything from from sunshine to rain. We recommend you pack layers to be ready for any type of weather and strongly encourage you to pack a raincoat or umbrella as well.
