Train Travel Time

by italymom


I will be visiting Italy in October of 2008. I will be staying at a villa in Lucca but would love to go to Austria. I'm not sure that I want to spend days there. Does anyone know how long it takes by train to get from Lucca to Salzburg? And, would making this a day trip be possible?

It's quite a journey involving several changes.
The average time is 10 hours and the distance approx. 750 kms
You may be better checking for flights from Florence to Salzburg

Re: Train Travel Time

by mccalpin

Dominic is quite right that there is no good way by rail to make this trip. Part of the problem is the location of Salzburg itself - it's usually easier to go to either end of Austria (i.e., Innsbruck and Vienna) than the middle (Salzburg and Welz). But in any case, it will take you 8 hours just to get to Innsbruck.

You might consider taking overnight trains, so that you go up to Innsbruck on on overnight train (from Florence), make your way across Austria, spending a night somewhere (like Salzburg), then taking the Allegro Tosca overnight train from Vienna back to Florence and then on to Lucca. This would give you two days and one night in Austria (although you would be away 3 nights).

But even by air, this will be a hassle, unless you have the time to spare...


Travel Tips for Lucca

Guinigi Tower

by Azhut

The development of Lucca Romanesque house reaches its apex in the series of towers and mansions known as "Case dei Guinigi" (Guinigis' houses). Among them the high tower topped by ilex trees stands out, and it is now visitable.

Find the Green Man

by leics

The Green Man is a pagan symbol of new life, with leaves sprouting from his face or partially hiding it.

He appears in many, many ancient English churches and (I have recently discovered) he can be found abroad as well. The early Christian church adopted many of the rituals and symbols of pageans, in order to draw new converts to its flock.

He's there in Lucca, at the base of a pillar in the atrium of San Martino. He's upside-down (maybe they decided to invert the pillar after it was carved, to reduce his power?) but he is most definitely there.

And I was very pleased to find him.

Nice, homey restaurant

by Herkbert about Osteria Miranda

We enjoyed Osteria Miranda very much. The food was good, the staff was very nice and the restaurant interior was simple but pleasant. The menu is varied with some traditional items as well as some more inventive plates. They have a good wine list, as well as a delicious local house wine.

The clientele was a mix of locals and tourists, all seeming to enjoy themselves and their dinners.

a bit disappointing interior


The cattedrale di S. Martino lies in a very nice square and shows an outstanding architecture. Do not miss the statues of S. Martino (both in the facade and in the interior).
Interior is very dark and disappointing in comparison to the exterior, but it is still a very fascinating church. When you visit Italian churches you may get used to such masterpieces but never forget they really are!!!!

Piazza Anfiteatro

by sue_stone

Piazza Anfiteatro is a large oval piazza just off Via Fillungo.

It was originally a Roman Ampitheatre and still maintains that shape.

Today there are buildings that stand around the perimeter, which mainly house cafes/restaurants and a few tourist style shops.

Some of these cafe's have outdoor tables which are good for a spot of people watching.
