Tuscany Bicycle Tours - Travel to the Region

The Tuscan airports at Pisa and Florence mostly handle internal and short haul flights. Coming from abroad, Rome may be more convenient. Rome has two airports. Leonardo da Vinci Airport (at Fiumicino) is used by the major airlines, while Ciampino Airport is used by budget airlines such as Ryanair.

Getting to and from the trailheads (Siena, Sansepolcro, Florence) for the Tuscany itineraries involves travel from your arrival airport to the nearest mainline station or bus station for onward transport to the trailhead town.

Most inter-city trains leave Rome from Termini Station. Most inter-city buses leave from the main bus station outside Rome Tiburtina railway station. The Metro (line B) connects the two.
