How to reach us

The Airport of Pisa is near the city centre, and it is served by major airlines with flights from Milan, Rome, London, Paris and many other Italian, European and international cities.

The Florence Airport is the next closest airport to the city of Pisa; it also has numerous connections to Italian, European and international cities. It is linked to the central train station (Santa Maria Novella) of Florence by shuttle busses and by train to Pisa. These latter leave approximately every twenty minutes and take about an hour to travel from Florence to Pisa.

Other possible airports are those of Genoa and Rome.

The Scuola Normale can be reached from the Pisa Airport using city busses: Take bus 3 and get off at the "Ponte di Mezzo" stop. Cross the bridge, continue straight along Borgo Stretto and turn left onto via Ulisse Dini. After about 200 m. you will reach Piazza dei Cavalieri where the Scuola Normale is located.

You can also take a taxi; the trip from the airport to the Scuola Normale costs about €10.

By train:

The main station is "Pisa Centrale", located in the city centre about 1 km from the Scuola Normale.

Pisa is connected with all main European cities by train through Florence, Turin, Genoa or Rome.

Please Note:
There is a supplemental charge on the Intercity e Eurostar trains.
Train tickets must be automatically date stamped before boarding in the yellow date-stamp boxes located in the main terminals of all Italian train stations.

The Scuola Normale can be reached by bus from the train station, or by taxi (for about €5); you can also walk from the station in about 20-25 minutes.
