The major Italian airports are found in Rome and Milan, but the region of Tuscany has airports too. When you're trying to maximize your trip to one of the most treasured regions of Italy, fly directly in and out of Florence or Pisa. There's also an airport in Marina di Campo, but that's only worth using if you plan to vacation solely on the island of Elba.

In addition to the Italian airline Alitalia, carriers such as Delta, British Airways and Lufthansa service Pisa's airport, as well as European discount carriers EasyJet and RyanAir.
