Florence Airport to Lucca

by dnovickden

I know trains / busses are good to/from Lucca and Pisa and Florence... However, I am traveling with my 84 year old mother and I need a good / convenient way to get to/from Florence Airport and Lucca at about 800P in the evening. I can do private car service for EUR 110 each way but I thought I would check around.

Ouch, that hurts, but I suppose a private car service will be the most convenient way to travel, considering your mother's advanced years. Train travel in Italy is highly regarded, however, we often found last-minute changes had us scurrying from one platform to another in order to catch the correct train.
Another consideration is what to do when you arrive in Lucca... We walked from the train station to our accommodation in the old part of town, but this will probably not be an option for your mother. A cab from the station or a private car service will most likely solve this problem.

Thanks for the observation. But, still seeking a pragmatic solution. Could be we'll still have to pay for this service.

Travel Tips for Lucca

Walk around and bring along a...

by sandravdp

Walk around and bring along a map with you or buy it at a shop in Lucca. If you don't you will be sure to get lost in all these lovely but narrow streets. Sitting on the Piazza del Mercato (Merchant Square) and walking on the city walls.

Stadio Communale "Porta Elisa"

by HORSCHECK

A.S. Lucchese Libertas is the local football team of Lucca. They are currently in the third italian league and play their home matches in the Stadio Communale "Porta Elisa". It is located just east of the city walls. If there is no match, you might just get in and watch the players go into training. The stadium has a capacity of about 11.500.

By coach service

by Azhut

Lucca is in a excellent position to reach easily many other places of world-class touristical fame. LAZZI bus company offer a good service to reach speedily the following places: Florence, Pisa, Viareggio (and Versilia sea), Gafagnana mountains, Montecatini's thermal baths. The service is usually reduced on holidays and Sunday. Passengers have to buy tickets in appropriate shops and box offices (and more outlets that display the company marking "F.lli LAZZI"). Tickets are not transferable and must be preserved throughout the journey. Passengers devoid of ticket must pay a fine.

Walk the wall for a great view

by BruceDunning

Lucca is a big city but the villages within 50 miles are beautiful, more than Lucca itself. The citta vecchio (old town) of Lucca inside the wall is impressive and you could take a couple of days just inside the walls to see what there is to see. We did. The wall is over 20 feet in depth and of earthen base except for the brick front. Many passages allow you to enter form various areas. Many people bike around the top of the wall.

Torre Guinigi

by codrutz

Guinigi was a family that ruled Lucca for a while, and of course for that they had to have the nicest residence. They've built a palazzo and more adiacent houses, and this impressive 40 meter tower. On that time Lucca had a lot of towers, around 170 - including church towers. Guinigi Tower is known and easily recognised for the fact that it has an ancient oak tree on top of it. And the view from the tower to the city of Lucca below is very rewarding.
