Using TrenItalia to book Florence to Pisa

by ksaldanha

I have been using Trenitalia to book train tickets for a trip in january. I was able to book Rome to Florence (return), but am unable to book Florence to Pisa? When I search it just says fare/solution is not available. However, the RailEurope site allows me to book (but usually this site is said to be more expensive so I am holding off). Any information would be greatly appreciated.

thanks

Hi, we flew into Pisa airport and took the train to Florence. We bought tickets at the machine on the platform no problem and not expensive. From Florence to Pisa we again bought tickets at he station, I think about 7euros, cant really remember sorry. We got the 10.30am train as this goes direct to the airport without any need to change trains. Hope this helps

There is absolutely no need to book a train from Florence to Pisa. They run all day and most of the night. It's a very short distance and if you miss one train you only need to wait for the next one which will come along before you know it.

As suggested above, there is no need to book in advance.

And why the trenitalia.com is not supporting advanced booking? becuase the train beteen the two cities is Regional one which are too easier and economical to book without the internet.

All you need to do is buy the ticket from one of the vending machines at Florence station, go to the platform, validate the ticket from the yellow machines, and board onto the train. There are no seat numbers so this first come first serve. Trains seldom get filled-up, and if they do one may travel by standing in the alleys, perfectly legitimate.

You may refer to trenitalia.com to get an idea about timetables. When at the station, do double check with the timetable overthere too. We got more options this way.

Also note that tikets once purchased are valid for 60 days or so unless you validate them.

Its easier than said, so no need to worry and stay miles clear of Rail Euopre site for sanity's sake.

Hope this helps

Ciao

Also note that Regional trains tickets are not discount-able as they are already dirt cheap

I can only underscore what Muzzamil said: steer miles clear from RailEurope. Their prices are rip-off, their railpasses mostly useless and the schedule is not precise. In addition to that - very unprofessional people.

Absolutelty and entirely agree.

There is absolutely no need to book tickets in advance online and most definitely do not use Raileurope. This is a ticketing agency which not only charges commission on tickets but also does not list all departures.

Just use the Trenitalia website in English to find train times, details and fares:

http://trenitalia.it/homepage_en.html

Ticket machines are easy to use and have English language options. Imo it is better to use cash to avoid any potential hassle with foreign cards.

There are loads of Florence>Pisa trains daily: you *really* do not need to worry about booking in advance (not even the Rome>Florence journey, but you've already done that). The majority of trains (and all regional ones) cannot get full up: if there are no seats (pretty unlikely) one simply stands until seats become available.

Travel Tips for Pisa

Soaking it all in

by Tijavi

Pisa did not only once rival Venice (and Genoa) as a great maritime power. Its Piazza dei Miracoli is also a serious threat to Venice's Piazza San Marco to vie for the title as Italy's most memorable square. The comparisons and the competition are well-founded. The sight of three cream-colored magnificent romanesque architectrual gems rising above the lush green lawn is indeed a signt to behold. The effect is more haunting against a backdrop of gathering rain clouds on the horizon - even with the hordes of tourists all wanting a piece, or more a snap, of the Leaning Tower in funny positions, ranging from shaolin-temple-like karate kids to some obviously obscene movements of the mouth (you get the idea).

I've always loved to observe people, particularly tourists like myself, during my travels, and Piazza dei Miracoli proved to be a fertile ground for this activity.

Pisa Tip

by pollon

Jenny, my Canadian friend, was again the reason of this trip of not even a whole day taking advantage of a long week-end, to a town that I could define closely-packed even if the entrance in the main square is impressive!

I cannot say the same of my pic but I'm that kind of annoying photographer who would like to take her pics without tourists and that's fairly impossible in Pisa in so little time of a long weekend...

Piazza dei Cavalieri

by croisbeauty

Piazza dei Cavalieri is beautiful square harmoniously enclosed by a architectonic structure of the 16th and 17th centuries. When Pisa fell under the Medici, the whole square was transformed by Vasari, by order of Cosimo I. He made it the seat of the Order of the Knights of St. Stephen founded by him in order to defend the Tyrhenian coast from the Muslim raids.

Bambino anyone!

by sue_stone

Everywhere you go in Florence (and Italy) you will see very cute little cars!!

And not only are they cute, they are sensible too - particularly in a city like Pisa that has narrow streets and limited parking - the smaller the car the easier your day to day motoring is.

Now, just make sure you don't do too much shopping though....

Torre Guelfa "Cittadella"

by susancallus

If you're spending a whole day in Pisa don't miss to go around the city. It's a pleasure to do so and there are many interesting and beautiful spots around like this beautiful Torre Guelfa which is situated on a side of the beautiful river Arno. Here is a map of Pisa (click on the other photo) which I used when I was there. It was very helpful to me. Torre Guelfa is marked No.9. Another lovely place to visit is the splendid Church of S.Maria della Spina, marked No.8. Tourists visit only the Cathedral and the Leaning Tower and that's a big mistake!
