How to reach Scuola Normale Superiore
The Pisa Airport is near the city centre (about 2 km).Scuola Normale Superiore (henceforth SNS) can be reached from the Airport with the city bus "LAM Rossa" in the direction "torre - S. Jacopo" (Compagnia Pisana Trasporti). The bus terminal is just off the departures’ side. Get off immediately after crossing the bridge over the river Arno, called "Ponte Solferino", and walk from there for about 10 minutes (walking path from the bus stop to SNS). Tickets can be purchased at the newspaper kiosk or from the automatic machine at the terminal. As an alternative, take a taxi from the airport (+39.050.541600); the trip costs about 15 euros.
The next closest airport is Florence Airport. For people landing there, the suggestion is to take a taxi to the train station "Firenze Rifredi" (not to be confused with "Firenze Santa Maria Novella", which is the main station). From there one finds trains to Pisa more than once per hour.Other possible airports are those of Genoa and Rome. See below as for reaching SNS from the Pisa train station.
