trainconnections

by uschithiemann

How will I go by train from Pisa Airport to Castelnuovo di Garfganana in the Toscany? I only know, this is a 1,5 hour journey.
Can I buy traintickets at the desk in the trainstation or do I have to book online?How do I go about it?

If you look at the website of Pisa Airport:
http://www.pisa-airport.com/aeroporto_di_pisa_17.html
you have several choices how to get from there to Pisa train station (in the city). There is even a train from the airport to Pisa.
If you look up the train connections between Pisa and Castelnuovo di Garfagnana (note to spell the name correctly, it is not Garfganana), you find the possible connections. Some are direct and some are with chaging trains in Lucca.

And from what I have heard of, you don't have to book the tickets online but can buy them at the machines.

I am afraid that you may not find a direct connection; you first need to take the train from Pisa Airport to Pisa Central and then either take a direct train to Castelnuovo Di Garfagnana (going in the direction of Minucciano) or make a connection via Lucca. For details refer to www.trenitalia.com with spellings mentioned in my post.

Only Regional Trains serve this route, which do not require advanced booking. you can buy tickets either from ticket counters or by easy-to-use English speaking vending machines installed at train stations. Tickets are open-ended and not train specific, i.e. you can use them whenever you wish to within a specified span of time (2 months I suppose). However, do validate your ticket before boarding on to the train from the yellow machines installed at the platform. Regional Trains do not support reservations and one can travel by standing in alleys if there is no seat. Fortunately, Italian Regional Trains usually get filled-up unless there are any celebrations. In short, it is simpler than it sounds and you dont need to worry a bit :)

Hope this helps

Ciao

Haha, yes, but your answer is much more detailed :-))

I am travelling through Italy at present, I check out the trains on Trentitalia website then just go to the station and buy what I need at the machine, you can chose english and you can buy for the next day, a regional ticket lasts for 6 hours from when you validate it . Check your spelling as all are spelt the Italian way, allow some extra time as some machines don't work and you need to choose another (especially at bigger stations)

Travel Tips for Pisa

Pisa and the Pisani

by csordila

Pisa is not a tourist town!!
Hard to believe it, if you see the crowded Piazza dei Miracoli. But it is a fact, outside the main attraction of the city, not too many tourist are interested in staying here for a longer period of time. And Pisa itself does absolutely nothing to attract the tourists and invite them to stay.

The Pisani have a bad reputation in Tuscany: “better a corpse in the house than a Pisan at the door” says a famous Tuscan proverb.
Therefore, unlike other Tuscan towns, here you have a higher chance to see the daily life of local people, that is more authentic than that of Florence or Siena.
Though Pisa is a small town, but one with an attitude, having a colourful history of belligerence and conquests. The typical Pisan is generaly unpretentious but - who knows, why - hostile to all those who are pretentious. Dante Alighieri called Pisa as cursed people, because of the fate of a Pisan leader who was starved to death for treason, together with his sons and grandsons, whom Dante places in Hell.

by shiran_d

There are beaches that are very beautiful.

Lots of Rich and famous people travel to the private beaches along this coast.

The Photo was taken at about 6.30AM during early summer months.
You can also see the poppies all over the Tuscan Reigon. It is so pretty that you will just fall in love with the nature.

I am planning my at leat once a year trip to the Tuscan Village. Just the beauty of the uscan country side, Food People, what more the bright sun and beautiful dawn and the dusk.

Great place to live and unwind your stressful life style.

Torre Pendente

by filipdebont

Torre Pendente or the Leaning Tower (or De Scheve Torre in 't Vlaems).

Tourist attraction number one in Pisa, maybe even in Italy.

What the Colloseum is for Rome, is the Leaning Tower for Pisa.

Of course it is also one of the wonders on the Field of miracles (Campo dei Miracoli). the leaning tower

Strange positions

by filipdebont

Of course there is plenty to see when you are visiting the Campo dei Miracoli (Field of Miracles).

But besides admiring and making pictures of the famous monuments at this square, you should take some time to observe the other tourists.

Well it is kind of funny to see all (most) of the tourists make strange movements in order to make a funny - I push or I hold the Leaning Tower.

Porta a Mare

by croisbeauty

Porta a Mare (The Sea Gate) is one of the few left medieval gateways into the town of Pisa, which was surrounded by the massive walls. I've discovered it only by chance because nothing about is mentioned in the city guide book I bought. The gate is situated nearby the church of San Paolo a Ripa d'Arno and right opposite to the Torre Guelfa.
