We recommend flying into Florence's Amerigo Vespucci Airport (FLR), which is just six miles from the city center, but handles a limited number of airlines. The Galileo Galiei Airport (PSA) is the largest airport that services Tuscany but is situated 80 kilometers west of Florence. Taxis are available from both airports to transport you to the hotel.

If you prefer to travel by private car, our concierge can arrange for a Mercedes or deluxe minivan with an English-speaking driver who will greet you at the arrival terminal. To schedule this service, please email the concierge at concierge.westinflorence@starwoodhotels.com.

We are easily accessible by freeway and are located one kilometer from the Santa Maria Novella train station. Private car service is available for transport to and from all local train stations and airports upon advance request. Because the streets of Florence are very narrow and parking is prohibited in the historic center, we do not suggest traveling by car.

If you are traveling by car, please see driving directions, from the airport or any other location.
