Buses from San Lorenzo a Vaccoli to Lucca

by Kerso1

Hi there

My family and I are going to be staying at Villa Magnolia just outside San Lorenzo a Vaccoli. According to the website we are 500 metres from the local bar, grocers, newsagents etc. However, we would like to know if there are buses which run into Lucca and how regular they are. We are considering hiring a car as a last resort, but would rather not drive, if the public transport is good.

Also, does anyone know the approximate price for a taxi from Pisa airport to San Lorenzo a Vaccoli and also what the price of a taxi would be from Lucca train station to San Lorenzo a Vaccoli.

Hope someone can help me with information.

Thanks in advance

http://www.vaibus.it/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=4&Itemid=5 has a pdf download of all the Lucca buses (in Italian).

I think you need Linea 54 on the Linee Urbane link. The bus stop is in the centre of the village.

S Lorenzo is only about 5km from Lucca, so it would be cheaper to get a taxi from Lucca station than from Pisa airport (25km or so).

Hi

Hope you don't mind me contacting you but we're considering the Villa La Magnolia as a base for our holiday this year. What did you think of it and the area?

Thanks
Caroline

So sorry for delay.. Haven't logged on for ages.

We thought the villa was nice.. It's about a 10min walk to the bus stop, but it was fine. We're going back to Lucca this year again, but we've opted for a 2 bedroomed apartment in Lucca instead. The villa was nice though - quite old fashioned, but nice and clean

Travel Tips for Lucca

The church of San Michele in Foro.

by Maurizioago

This church was built between the 11th and the 14th century. It is located where the Roman forum was.

Its richly sculpted facade is bigger than the rest of the chuch, because money ran out before it was completed.

At the top of the church you can see a statue of archangel Michael. It has movable wings. So that if the wind is strong they can be retracted.

A legent say that if you catch a green glimmer from the stature of the angel, in a peculiar condition of light you’ll have good luck.

Ponte della Maddalena

by illudiumqh36

AKA Ponte del Diavolo (Devil's Bridge) this bridge is located in Borgo a Mozzano, 10-15 Km far from Lucca towards Garfagnana.
His name is due to its shape, so incredible to let people say it has been built by the devil.

Every halloween night there is a popular fest in which a carriage containing a puppet of Lucida Mansi (a rich lady of Lucca who sold her soul to the devil to keep her beauty for ever) is thrown down the brigde.

Entertainment over lunch

by SPW about Trattoria da Leo

Da Leo has both an outdoor dining area and the more atmospheric indoor dining room. The dining room was crowded and had a 'buzzy' atmosphere and occasional bursts of song from the waiters.
We each started with a different farro soup, then we each had a roast: veal and pork. Unfortunately the roast potatoes were finished so we were offered chips but chose instead roast vegetables and fennel. We drank water and the house red. The bread, already sliced, was brought to the table in brown paper bags to prevent it from drying out, and proved excellent for sopping up the soup and gravy. We finished with one lemon gelati and one tiramisu.
Good food, wine and service and lots of entertainment from both the waiters and people watching.

Look for the glimmer

by Herkbert

Built between the 11th and 14th centuries, using white marble, San Michele in Foro is named after the Roman forum that used to stand at this intersection of the Roman street grid in the center of Lucca. The Romanesque facade is much more ornate and larger than the church that was eventually built, as the funds ran out before the church was completed.

The carving of the archangel Michele on top has wings that are hinged, so during festivals they can flap away wildly or in high winds they can be retracted. Legend has it that as long as St. Michael stays on top of the church, Lucca is safe.

And if you catch a glimmer from the jewel in the ring on Michael's hand, you have lots of good luck, so look up!

Piazza dell Anfiteatro

by micas_pt

Piazza del Anfiteatro (or Roman Amphitheatre Square) is a round square surrounded by colourful typical Italian buildings. This square is named as Roman Amphitheatre since it was built where formerly stood one.

Nowadays it is a "bustling" square, visited both by tourists and locals, where there are varied restaurants and cafes, most of them with open air tables. Also, some touristy shops may be found on this lively, yet lovely, square.
