About Pisa Intl. Airport

Galileo Galilei Airport was built in 1930 in the historic city of Pisa in the Tuscany Region of Italy, to be used by military aircrafts of the Italian Air Force. During the Second World War the airport was occupied by the United States Army Air Force and used as a military base. The airport was named after Galileo Galilei, who was one of the most famous scientists in the world and native to Pisa city. In the 2000s the airport made great progress. Both military and commercial flights continue to be carried out at the airport and around four million passengers travel annually from Galileo Galilei Airport.

Getting to the City Center from Pisa Intl. Airport

Pisa, reminiscent of a seaside town, is a decent, bustling and small town, so it is very easy to explore on foot. You can also rent a bike, but you should be aware that the cobblestone streets can be quite crowded. The motorcycle, which is the first to come to mind when thinking about Italy and transportation, is a very convenient vehicle for exploring the city. Motorcycle parking areas, which you can see on almost every curbside, make your job easier. Renting a car is also an option. You can see the offices of many car rental companies in the city. But if you are not thinking about going to the surrounding cities and villages, you do not need an automobile to see the city center and tourist attractions.

Public transport in the city is mostly provided by bus. You can buy your bus tickets from buffets, markets, and newspaper vendors. Ticket price is 1.20 euro for one way. When you get on the bus, you must be sure to validate your ticket on the devices inside. If you are traveling with a ticket that has not been activated, you can pay a high fine.
