getting from florence airport to main train station

I arrive into Florence by air then want to travel to Spello the same day by train. Is there a train from the airport to the main station?

any views on how important it is to buy advance puchase train tickets in Italy - I'll be there in July.

Shuttle bus or taxi---not that far---about 20E for a taxi.

There is no train from the airport. The direct bus is about 7 euro and takes 15-20 minutes, dropping you at the front of the train station. You can pay the bus driver. As you exit the airport terminal, go to the right and cross the road the taxis arrive by- the bus stop is right there. I believe the bus runs every 15-20 minutes.

Check the trenitalia train site for fares and schedules to Spello. I would think that the fastest route would be to Foligno or Perugia, then change to the short train ride to Spello, but check the site to make sure.

Enjoy your trip!

We take a taxi but make sure you go to the taxi stand as people will approach you inside the terminal asking if you need a taxi.
