You must let Tuscan Muse know your flight itinerary, including arrival and departure times, flight numbers and the airline that you will be using. We pick up from the airport at 1 p.m. on your arrival date. We drop off by 10 a.m. on your departure date. Please make your flight plans accordingly. Do not forget the time it takes to go through Customs/Immigration and to retrieve your luggage. If your flight lands later than 11 a.m. most likely you will miss the transportation that we have scheduled for you. If your flight departs before noon on your departure date, most likely you will have to make private arrangements, at your expense, for transportation to the airport. We encourage you to take advantage of the transportation that we have arranged for you, which is included in the price of your workshop in Tuscany or tour of Tuscany.
Arrival in Tuscany
You will be picked up by our excellent transportation partners at the Rome Airport (Fiumicino/ Leonardo da Vinci-FCO) or Florence Airport (FLR) named "Amerigo Vespucci Airport", but is also known by many people by its old name "Peretola" at 1 p.m. on the first day of the workshop/tour. This means you must schedule your itinerary so that your flight arrives well before 1 p.m. and to allow for the customs/immigration process.
Our partners will meet you on the ground floor of international arrivals near the Baggage Storage Facility. Look for a person carrying a sign that is marked, “Tuscan Muse”.
There is only one exit after going through immigration. After going through the exit, turn right and walk with your luggage approximately 100 yards. You will pass by an escalator. Stay to the right of the escalator and continue to the area of the Baggage Storage Facility. You will find restroom facilities in this area. Please stay inside the building so that the group will all be together for our transportation partner to find you.
The trip to Le Casacce or Le Citte from the airport in Rome takes approximately 3 hours. The trip to Le Casacce or Le Citte from the airport in Florence takes approximately 2 hours. During the trip, there will be a rest stop for use of restroom facilities and to buy snacks and drinks.
Departure from Tuscany
On the last day of the workshop/tour your transportation to the Rome airport or the Florence airport will be departing at approximately 7:00 a.m. and arriving at the Rome or Florence airport at approximately 10:00 a.m. Please be sure to make note of this before scheduling your flight. If your plans include staying over in Rome or Florence, we can only provide you with transportation to the airport, from which you will have to secure your own transportation into the city.
