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 PNTLab. To reach PNTLab, 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. Timetables are here.

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 PNTLab. To reach PNTLab 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; timetables are here. Taxi service is also available.
