airport to central station

by joey47

I am an oldie and wondering if it is easy to get a bus from Florence airport to Santa Maria Novella Station as we are staying nearby. What is the cost and where should I go to get the bus at the airport, is the stop well signed.

Re: airport to central station

by mccalpin

The answer is "yes". I have not made this run, but do look at the airport's website - http://www.aeroporto.firenze.it/EN/index.php?percorso=contents&ln=1&jk=17&tipo=&curr=0&opt=&id_impianto=
This shows you the timetables for the "vola in bus" service, a joint service by ATAF (the public transit system in Florence) and SITA (the regional bus system).

I am sorry that the airport website doesn't say where the bus leaves from, but if you look for (or ask) for the "vola in bus" bus service, someone will show you the right direction.

The bus goes to the "autostazione Sita" (bus terminal) in Florence, which, like in many Italian cities, is positioned next to the train station. If you have a mapping software website (I use www.viamichelin.com), the address of the autostazione is "Via S. Caterina da Siena, 17 R", which is immediately west (and a little south) from the piazza in front of the station.

The schedule doesn't say anything about intermediate stops, so you might not have a problem trying to guess your stop; remember that this is not a city bus with a regular route, but a special run. Of course, if you ask someone "Santa Maria Novella?", I am sure they will point out the rather obvious train station to you ;-)

The airport website does not give a price...ah, look at http://www.ataf.net/en/customer-service/information-to-clients/volainbus---airport-shuttle.aspx?idC=621&LN=en-US
where the ATAF website says that the price is 4.50 euro, and even tells you where to buy the tickets...and look at the other info - it is indeed a direct bus...

Aha! Even better, a brochure with maps! see http://www.ataf.net/System/files/FOLDER%20VOLA%20IN%20BUS%202.pdf

So how does that work for you?

Re: airport to central station

by adamsberg

Here is a good company, called TERRAVISION
http://www.terravision.eu/florence_pisa.html
I used it a lot when I lived in London to come and go to the airport, and the service was very good.

Re: airport to central station

by mccalpin

Note that the Terravision bus service is primarily from Pisa's airport to Florence SNM, not Florence's airport. However, when you look at the terravision link above, you will see that some of the buses do stop at the airport in Florence going one way or the other. So you need to check the times to see if they work for you.

NOTE: the website doesn't give a fare for Florence airport to Florence SNM. I am not even sure that they will sell you a ticket for this trip...this is worth an email to them...but in any case, one suspects that the city bus that I described will be cheaper...

Travel Tips for Florence

Dominate the crowds

by codrutz

Florence is one of the busiest cities in Italy. So, for your and your accompanion's sake, try to dominate the crowds, make your own routes, look for photo opportunities without much people in the shot (though pretty hard to realize but if you wake up at 6am to take early photos), consult your guide map and enjoy Florence!

Florence from Piazzale Michelangelo

by KiNyA

Probably the best way to see Florence is to hike up to Piazzale Michelangelo. From there you can really see one of the most beautiful European cities at once.
As well there's the famous statue of Michelangelo's David.

A detail from Neptune Fountain

by KiNyA

Neptune Fountain was made by Ammannati in 1575. It's quite nice fountaine but what I really liked are these small cute horses. Btw the Neptune Fountain tip will be built when I scan the pic of it :-)
Location: Piazza della Signoria

Party time!! =D

by Ibizahippie about Central Park

If you come to Florence, you shouldn't miss their party scene! Check out Central Park..cos you'll definitely won't regret it!
They have several dancefloor (some indoors, some outdoors) where each plays different kinds of music, so you can keep switching place for different kinds of music ;)

By cab from the area near Del Duomo, it cost around Euro 7 to get there. But if you really don't mind to walk, it's actually not that very far from the train station (Santa Maria Novella Stazione) -if you know the street. I remember there's a stall just at the beginning of the little dark street leading to Central Park. So perhaps if you are walking at the main street, just try to locate the a stall selling drink and finger food.. :) I'm not that sure if they really have a dress code there.. But it's always good to dress well for pary ;)

Additional information...
You'll be given a card at the entrance. Whenever you buy a drink, you just need to give the bartender your card. And don't lost it. Pay at the cashier before leaving and you'll then be given a receipt. You'll need to give the receipt to the bouncer before they let you go thru the exit.
By the way, drink cost Euro 8.

P.s: You might see some informations from other VT members are different. But that's because there have been several changes (that's what I was told by the locals..)
There was no minimum spent requirement when I was there too. I pay exactly for what I purchased.. :)

Go where the Florentine people go!

by chala about Pinolo

We stayed around the corner and thought, the menu lookes nice. Ww were helped by the boss himself who asked about the froms and wheretos... recomended stuff that was pretty good. It was Friday evening
Next evening we had made a booking for a table in the courtyard, really nice, locals were queuing for tables!!
Food is really good priced , tasty and a huge selection of pizzas, seafood pasta meat etc... We had a mixed antipasti plate for two, which was huge, hams and salamis, but also pickled fish, grilled and pickled vegetables, olives, tasty bread...

house wine is ok and cheap, bottles are reasonably priced

We were in season pf porccini mushrooms and had nice porcini dishes ...
