Flights to Florence land a mere seven km from downtown at Florence Airport, Peretola (Amerigo Vespucci International Airport). Buses and trains are common options to get to the city, as is a taxi, but if you want more flexibility during your stay, rent a car in Florence at the facility near the airport (a shuttle bus takes you there). This way, you can explore surrounding cities such as nearby Pisa, where you can see the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa and Knights' Square, and also Prato, which features the Prato Cathedral and plenty of great Tuscan food. The striking landscapes surrounding the city are also worth exploring. Within town, a vehicle can transport you to all sorts of points of interest such as Basilica of Santa Croce and the San Marco Museum.
From the Accademia Gallery (hello Michelangelo's "David") to the stunning Boboli Gardens to the bustling Piazzale Michelangelo, Florence wows.
