    Default how to get from florence airport (FLR) to Santa maria novella train station area

    Hi there! i will be in florence in july and understand that there is a tram that i can take from the airport to city centre. Can i know upon arrival where can i purchase the ticket ( if possible pls advise me on the location) and how much does it cost to travel from airport to Santa Maria Novella Train station as my accomodation is near there. I also know that i would need to purchase a ticket for my luggage as well. How much will it cost and lastly how long is the ride? We are a party of 5 so does it make sense to get a taxi instead? Txs for all your help

    The tram is as you exit the airport to your left, there are signs - just follow those. You can buy tickets right on the track, there are 2 automatic machines, where you can pay with coins/cash or even ATMs.
    The ride is about 20 minutes, ticket costs €1,50 for each -- so 3 with your suitcase included. Once you buy the ticket, check whether it has a time stamp on it - if not, once you get on the tram, there are machines near the entrance where you put the ticket inside and "stamp" the date and time on it.

    I am not sure all 5 would fit in one taxi, so for sure the tram is more convenient now!

    The last photo on my post here https://www.visitflorence.com/blog/tram-line-t2-open/
    shows the ticket machine at the airport, several pics on there are of the tram stop at the airport.
