Travel to and from Lucca

by EstherRitzenthaler

What is the best way to travel from Rome to Lucca? After a week in Lucca, I'll be traveling to Dijon in France. So far, I have found only a 12 and a half hour train trip: Lucca to Florence; Florence to Milan; Milan to Lausanne; Lausanne to Dijon. I would leave Lucca 7:30 AM, and arrive in Dijon about 8:13 PM. Any suggestions? I thought about flying but Dijon has a tiny airport which services mainly charter flights, not commercial ones. I'll be arriving in Rome on May 18 and leaving for Lucca on May 22. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Travel to and from Lucca

The best way to travel anywhere i Italy is by train.

Italian trains are safe, comfortable and easonably-priced and the network is extensive. Long-distance buses are much less common than in other European countries simply because of this.

You can find train times, details and fares for Italian trains in English here:

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

Rome>Lucca takes from 3h 15m, with a change of train (mostly at Florence, sometimes elsewhere). One-way fare is 49.10 euro.

You could investigate flying from e.g. Pisa or Florence to e.g. Lyon or Zurich. But by the time you've taken train to and from both places, it won't be any quicker than train all the way. www.whichbudget.com lists all budget carriers and their destinations and www.skyscanner.net will give you cheapest fares for your dates.

The excellent bahn.de carries times and fares for almost all European trains. It suggests a journey time of 12+ hours for Lucca>Dijon.....you might consider the overnight train, which has least changes.

Click the grey arrow to the side of each departure to see details of changes, train type etc.

My personal choice would be to break the journey with an overnight stay in e.g. Milan or Nice (depending on train route).

Travel Tips for Lucca

Narrow alleys

by Helga67

Lucca has an almost intact historic centre formed by a complex interlacement of narrow alleys, little winding roads and inner courtyards which are all connected to one another by vaults, passages and small irregular squares.

San Michele in Foro: partially hidden details.

by leics

You'll see the wonderful, intricate facade of this church, of course. And you'll probably go inside to see the rather plain interior, the beautiful Lippi painting and the Della Robbia Madonna.

But take a few minutes to look around the base of the building on the outside. You'll see carvings there, some partly covered by the more recent 'pavement'. There are memorial carvings for the great and good long dead and buried close to the church walls..........some Medieval graffiti ......some inscriptions......

Worth a closer look.

Bus Tickets

by alucas

Like most Italian cities, you buy tickets at the Tabacci before getting on the navettes and stamp them in the machines on the buses. The fare in July 2004 was a flat fare of 0.60 euros, and the tickets were valid for a single journey anywhere within the urban area. We found it worthwhile to buy books of twelve tickets at 6 euros a book. Season tickets are available, and probably day and weekly passes, but we didn’t pursue that any further.

Take a stroll

by katezr

On top of the city walls there is a very nice path that is larger than most streets in Italy, for pedestrians and bikers only. It goes all around the city, and parts of it are covered by arches of trees. We took it on our way back from the town center to the train station, and we had a very pleasant walk.

If you are there with children, look for the nice huge playground between trees soon after the bridge, down on your left when going counterclockwise from the center to the train station.

Views over Lucca

by sue_stone

One of the best ways to get a feeling for Lucca is to climb one of the two towers for a birds eye view of the city.

Climb either the Torre Guinigi or the Torre delle Ore for the best view in town!
