Pisa / San Giusto - Galileo Galilei International Airport

Pisa, IT


Getting around the airport


Pisa Airport (known as Galileo Galilei Airport) is Italy's gateway to Tuscany. It lies only 1km from Pisa city centre, and 80km from Florence. It has only one passenger terminal, with two floors:

  • Ground level: Arrivals, Departures, baggage claim, currency exchange, shops, bar, cafe pizza parlour   
  • First floor: VIP lounge, business centre, viewing area, restaurants, pharmacy, hair stylist, chapel

You'll find more facilities and seating landside than airside, so it's worth waiting a little before going to your boarding gate.

Getting into Pisa

Take a stroll into town (or a taxi)


Pisa is only 1 km from the airport, so if you don't have much luggage, walking is a realistic option.


If you're carrying a lot of bags, however, the best, and still inexpensive, way into the city centre is by taxi.

Cost: EUR 6-8 flat rate (surcharges for luggage, Sundays and public holidays)
Location: Outside arrivals


If you prefer public transport, you'll need to take the PisaMover Bus until the new train station opens in 2017. It runs every 10 minutes and the journey takes 8 minutes until Pisa Central Station. Note: your ticket is only valid for 30 minutes.

Cost: EUR 1.30 (more if you pay on the bus)
Buying tickets: Information desk inside the arrivals hall or any 'tabacchi' shop
Location: In front of the Departures Terminal (hall check in A)

Going to Florence?

Take the Terravision bus. The journey takes 70 minutes, is pretty cheap, and is much more relaxing than driving the 100 km yourself.

Cost: EUR 4.99 one-way

Avoid eating at the airport

Eat in town instead

Flying during a meal time? Try planning ahead by eating in town before going to the airport. The airport is walking distance from the city centre and you’ll have more options and better prices in Pisa. If this isn’t possible then head to the Pizza Chef Bar on the ground floor. The food arrives quickly and it provides easy access to the boarding gates.
