There are two International Airports that service Casa Alina: Pisa Galileo Galilei, www.pisa-airport.com and Florence Aeroporto di Firenze, www.safnet.it
Who we fly: We fly Alitalia from Boston to Florence with a stop in Rome. However, in the summer Delta has a new direct flight from NY (JFK) to PISA. Lufthansa, Air France and British Airways also fly to Florence and Pisa daily.
Public transportation in Italy is reliable and economical. However, we suggest that you rent a car at the airport so that you can travel to Casa Alina and around Tuscany at your own leisure.
Hertz is your best bet at the Florence airport. Make sure to reserve a car with GPS.
There are buses and trains that leave Montespertoli and Empoli for Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, Lucca and all other destinations.
The closest train station is in Empoli: www.trenitalia.com
If you do not want to drive then we suggest hiring a driver. We recommend:
