Tuscany: Getting there

Pistoia is conveniently located fairly close to 2 major airports, and is also accessible via train as well as having a quick connection to the autostrada.

By plane

Participants can choose to fly into either Florence or Pisa airports.  

If you are flying into Florence airport, these are your options for getting to Il Salicone:
- by car: approximately 30 minutes by car.
- by train:  take a bus from the airport to the main train station in Florence and then take the train from Florence to Serravalle P.se (Pistoia)
- by taxi from Florence airport direct to Il Sailcone (about €65)
- by bus from Florence Airport to Pistoia  - but the buses do not run very frequently

If you are flying into Pisa airport, these are your options for getting to Il Salicone:

- by car:  approximately 50 minutes
- by train:  take a train directly from Pisa airport to Serravalle P.se (Pistoia)
