Escape to the bustling city of Florence with regular flights from British Airways. From the iconic Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore to Michelangelo's David, the vibrant city of Florence is buzzing with travellers and locals who bring this beautiful city to life.
Sample authentic Italian dishes, shop for handmade clothes by local designers or get lost in the art and architecture that has earned Florence its reputation as one of the most interesting cities in Italy - it's all waiting for you. Get there in comfort and style with British Airways.
With direct flights departing from London City, it's easier than ever to plan your Italian holiday or a weekend city break in Florence. You can also choose to fly direct to nearby Pisa from London Heathrow or Gatwick and take a scenic train journey to Florence, allowing you to experience both cities during your trip. Fly with British Airways and choose to fly with hand baggage only or pick a price that includes a 23kg checked baggage allowance and free seat selection 24 hours before you fly - both options include complimentary on-board drinks and snacks.
Florence Airport, Peretola, is less than ten miles from the city centre, and easily accessible by car and public transport. An express shuttle - "Vola in Bus" - runs between the airport and the Florence Railway Central Station in the heart of town. Passengers can also take a taxi to downtown Florence for a flat rate of €20. Or, if you prefer, hire a car from Florence Airport and explore the surrounding area at your own pace.
