Tuscany is a beautiful and historic region of Italy and can be reached by plane, train, car and even bicycle or by ship. Here's our advice on the best and easiest ways to get here.
If you're in Europe you can easily reach Tuscany by train - it's a great way to travel and once you arrive you can either hire a car (we can help you with that) or even stay in a villa near a village and avoid having to drive altogether.
For details read our article on getting to Tuscany by train.
There are fast train lines across France and Germany heading to Turin or Milan and from here you can easily reach Florence or Pisa. It is possible to leave London at 8:00 in the morning and be in Florence by 10 pm.

And here is our selection of villas in Italy within walking distance of towns - though some villas are easier than others to reach via public transport, so we've made a further selection of our five best villas to visit without a car.
Many of our guests choose to drive down to Tuscany from the UK, or Denmark, or from Ireland. It's a great way to make the travel part of the holiday, stopping along the way to explore more of Europe. We've written some advice on routes, tips and places to stop here: Driving from London to Italy.
The drive itself will take around 16 to 20 hours, but we recommend planning a three day trip so you can enjoy the landscape. Have a look at these tips if you'd like to know where you can charge your EV in Italy.
For many of us distance and time constraints mean that we will fly. Tuscany has two main airports, Pisa - PSA and Florence - FLR but Tuscany can also easily be reached from the airports in Rome: Fiumicino - FCO and Ciampino - CIA, or from Bologna - BLQ, Genova - GOA or even one of Milan's three airports: Malpensa - MXP, Linate - LIN or nearby Bergamo - BGY . Umbria also has its own airport in Perugia - PEG that can be very convenient if you're visiting Cortona, Arezzo, or Southern Tuscany in general.
