The home of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the province of Pisa is served by Pisa International Airport and saw close to five million passengers passing through in 2013. One of two main gateway airports into Tuscany, this airport that is also known as Galileo Galilei Airport, was established in 1978.
The two names we know this international airport by are both iconic to this province. Pisa from the province and leaning tower, Galileo from the famous scientist dubbed “the father of science” who was native to Pisa.
