EUROPEAN FLIGHTS

Flying to FLR & PSA is generally easier for European flights (EasyJet, Air France, KLM, Swiss, Lufthansa, TAP, Iberia, British, Vueling). A smaller airport (FLR & PSA) may offer a faster baggage pickup and exit from the airport, less congestion to allow a faster car rental process, plus less congestion around the airport for fewer delays as you head to Montepulciano and Torrita di Siena.

INTERNATIONAL CONNECTIONS

There are also convenient international connections to FLR & PSA:

A) Connect in London with British Airways (note that Italy-bound flights usually depart from Terminal 3, and many Transatlantic flights land in Terminal 5 (only a few Transatlantic flights land in Terminal 3, so you will have to take a bus between terminals) (or fly with AA to London, which lands in Terminal 3 always and select the BA flight as the connection)). 
B) Connect in Lisbon with TAP, which flies to FLR.
C) Connect in Doha with Qatar Airways, which flies to PSA.
D) Connect in Amsterdam with KLM, which flies to FLR.
E) Connect in Paris with CDG, which flies to FLR.
F) Connect in Munch or Frankfurt with several airlines that fly to FLR and PSA.

 

INTERNATIONAL, FLY DIRECT TO ROME FCO

However, flying internationally may be easier with a direct flight to a larger airport, Rome’s Fiumicino (FCO), to save travel time of connecting flights and stress about you and your luggage making the connections. The drive is only 45 minutes longer from Fiumicino, although also the baggage pickup, airport exit and car rental pickup process may also add an extra 30 minutes. 

VAN TRANSFER TO MONTEPULCIANO & TORRITA

If you do not feel up to driving yourself to Montepulciano, airport transfers are available on request: € 330 per van from FCO.
