Train from Rome to Lucca

by Dorinda98

This will be my first trip to Tuscany, and I would like to take the train from Rome to Lucca. I have rented a house in Lucca. I cannot find specific information on trains other than Lucca is serviced by the Florence/Viareggio train line.

Can someone give advice? Will there be a taxi available at the train station for the journey to my house? I speak no Italian.
Thanks, Dorinda

Hy,
there are often trains from Rome to Lucca via Pisa or Viareggio or FlorenceSMN.
Fares and timetables here: http://trenitalia.it/homepage_en.html
You don't need to book ticket in advance except the hight speed trains(Frecciarossa)and you can make the ticket in the self service machines in the station, they are in english too and you may pay with credit card. Remenber to stamp the ticket in the yellow machines before taking the train.
Outside the Lucca station there is a fixed taxy point
Ciao, Marco

Yes, do your planning on the website that Marco gave you - it's the official website of the national rail system. But, from Rome to Lucca (via Florence) will not be a problem as both lines are heavily used and so there is plenty of service.

Note that in Italy, you don't wave down taxis in the street, you pick them up at taxi queues which are located in strategic locations around town. One of those strategic locations is always the train station, and the train station is usually a nexus for the local bus system as well.

As for "no Italian", this is usually no a problem if you have the address written out for the taxi driver (actually, computer-printed is best because of the slight differences in the way that Italians and English speakers write by hand). Can you tell us if the house is in town or out of town? If it's too far out of town, there may be additional legitimate charges, and, of course, there may be fees for nighttime service, extra luggage, etc...

Yes, definitely use:

http://www.trenitalia.com/homepage_en.html

(the same link as ferroviedellostato, just a different page name). It's in English and will give you train times, details and fares.

You can easily buy your ticket using ticket machines: they have English language options, including those at smaller station such as Lucca. Don't try to buy in advance online, it is not necessary.

There are plenty of trains from Rome>Florence daily. You will have to change, probably at Florence Santa Maria Novella station. Changing trains is easy....there are electronic listing of departures and platform numbers. If you are worried, just point to the train and say 'Lucca?' in a questioning tone.

Remember to validate (date-stamp) your ticket before boarding at Rome (orLucca on your return) using the yellow machines on the platform and/or at the platform entrances (Lucca). There are on-the-spot fines for non-validation, and they do check. You only need to validate your ticket once.

There will be taxis outside Lucca station, although they may be waiting on the parking area opposite rather than right outside the entrance.

As suggested, just have the address written down to show the taxi-driver.

Travel Tips for Lucca

Tourist Information Offices

by illudiumqh36

Although it is a small town (85.000 people living) Lucca has several tourist information offices: in Piazza Santa Maria just in front of the gate (yearly opened), in Piazza Grande inside Duke's Palace (yearly opened), in the old gate building next to Piazzale Verdi (yearly opened) and in a small old barracks beside Porta Elisa (seasonal) there are tourist offices that can give you all the informations you need.
Another seasonal office is located in Viale Luporini outside the Walls between the motorhome park and the entrance of the highway.
Unfortunately I dont know exactly the opening time for this offices.

Go to the outlying vilaggios-bella Nozzano

by BruceDunning

This is a real small but liveable village. It was extremely wuite, and only 5 people wer in the mid part of town. All were sitting around talking and enjoying daily life. It is a slow pace. The real excitement came when an old man, I guess over 70 years, fell off a bicicyle (bicicleta) where some people were trying to teach him to ride. At his age? Go figure. Well, he broke a bone and the ambulance had to come to take him off to the hospital. Tht was the most exceitemetn I am sure the village has experience in a long while

Parking in Lucca

by alucas

As the centre of Lucca is full of narrow streets, there is very limited car parking inside the city, and much of it is residents only. There are several car parks around the outside of the city walls, usually a couple of streets further out, and these are served by the navettes. Try the north east of the city, where we saw plenty of spaces available during the day.

Teatro del Giglio

by Willettsworld

Just to the east of Piazza Napoleone lies Piazza del Giglio where the city's theatre resides - Teatro del Giglio. The theatre was commissioned in 1672 on the site of an old convent. Following a period of French domination, when it was named the Teatro Nazionale, it reached its most glorious period in 1819 when Maria Luisa di Borbone took it over having become sovereign of Lucca. It is the most classic of Italian opera houses and the ideal home for the 'Centro Studi Giacomo Puccini'.

Duomo di San Martino

by HORSCHECK

The Romanesque Duomo di San Martino was built in the 13th century, whereas the attached bell tower (campanile) exists since the 11th century. It is home of the Volto Santo (Holy Face), a carving of Jesus created by Nicodemus who attended the crucifixion. On the outside near the entrance a circular labyrinth is carved in the stone wall.
