Fly: Florence has an airport, although this is a small airport with infrequent flights. In fact it is easier to fly to Pisa, accessible from Gatwick, Heathrow, Bristol, Luton and Stansted (from the UK). It is also only an hour from Rome to Florence by train, and so you may find flying to Rome International Airport an easier option. There is conveniently a fast train service from just alongside Pisa airport to the heart of Florence.
