By Plane
Pisa has an international airport with daily flights to London, Paris, Bruxelles and other important European cities, as well as to Rome, Milan, and other Italian cities. The timetable of incoming and outgoing flights together with a list of carriers is available at the Pisa International Airport website (Galileo Galilei Airport, PSA).

The airport is on the outskirts of the town, approximately 6 km from the Institute. To reach the Institute, it is probably most convenient to take a taxi. Otherwise, you have to take two different busses: bus LAM Rossa (L/R) (direction S. Iacopo) from the airport to the railway station and then bus LAM Verde (L/V) (direction Via di Pratale) getting off at the first stop in Via di Pratale. Tickets are on sale within the airport.

The railway station is located on the main line from Turin to Rome. There is also a very frequent train service to and from Florence. Ferrovie dello Stato provides a train schedule and booking service.

The railway station is approximately 5 km from the Institute. To reach the Institute you can take bus LAM Verde (L/V) (direction Via di Pratale) getting off at the first stop in Via Volpi, beside the CNR Area. Tickets are on sale outside the railway station. Taxi service is also available.
