We recommend flying into the Florence airport. To do this requires transferring flights in another European city, but is well worth the convenience once you arrive. Pisa airport would be a second choice, since trains leave regularly from the Pisa airport and arrive in downtown Florence 45 minutes later. Arriving in Rome or Milan may save a bit on airfare but requires roughly a half day to make your way to Florence by train.
