The perfect logistic platform
and gateway to the european markets

Thanks to a modern and efficient network of connections, Tuscany is in continuous connection with the rest of the world. Three highways: the A1 Milan-Naples, which connects Italy from north to south; the A12 Genoa-Livorno, the most direct connection with France; and the A11 Florence Sea which is connected with the other two and to the Florence-Pisa-Livorno highway. The main Italian railway line crosses Tuscany and there are easy connections with Naples, Rome, Bologna, Milan, and Northern Europe. Two airports connect the region with the main airports in Italy, Europe, and other international destinations: Galileo Galilei Airport in Pisa and Amerigo Vespucci Airport in Florence, added to which are three smaller airports. The main port is Livorno, and there are nine other ports of national and regional interest in Capraia, Carrara, Piombino, Portoferraio, Rio Marina, Viareggio, Marina di Campo, Porto Santo Stefano, and Giglio.
