The Peretola Airport is relatively small and has just one runway, but some of the biggest airlines in the world offer domestic and international flights from the airport. Air France, Niki, Darwin Airline, and Eurolot are just a few of the companies that provide cheap flights from Florence through Peretola Airport. The airport is just outside the city limits of Florence, approximately 30 minutes from downtown. When you want to save money on your flight, Orbitz.com offers deals and lower prices.
You can reach the Peretola Airport by driving along the major highways A1 or A11. Once you reach the airport, keep your eyes peeled for the large signs that indicate the parking areas on-site. The short-term lot costs â‚¬25 per day, and the long-term lot costs â‚¬24 per day for the first week, with discounted rates for additional weeks.
Not everyone wants to drive to the airport and find a parking garage. Two of the city bus lines make stops at the airport, and these stops occur every 30 minutes throughout the day. You can also take a taxi to the airport, which should take 15 to 20 minutes from downtown.
You can grab a meal or a drink at one of the three restaurants at the airport: A-Cafe, Spizzico, and My Chef. The restaurants offer everything from fresh sandwiches and salads that you can eat on the go to sit-down areas where you can enjoy a meal before your flight.
