Beautiful Tuscany Location:

You can fly from Milan or Rome into Florence Amerigo Vespucci Airport. From there, it is easy to get into the city using public transportation or the "Fly by Bus" shuttle service. Since it is only five kilometers from the airport to the city, even a taxi ride will not break your budget.

Or do as the Italians do and take the high-speed Eurostar train from Milan (2 hours and a half journey) or Rome (1 hour and a half). You will be whizzed past the Tuscan countryside and into the heart of Renaissance Florence. You can also land at Pisa Airport: a swanky single-class train will whisk you to Florence in precisely an hour, every hour.

Pickup Service:
A member of staff will welcome the students on arrival at the station or at the airport and will take them to their accommodation in Florence. This service should be requested when the application form is first submitted and is available between 6am and midnight.
