There are two stations in Montecatini Terme within a mile of each other, both on the same line from Florence to Viareggio. The trains are quite good and not too expensive (compared to UK). Tickets can be purchased from machines using card payment in English...More

Visited Lucca and was very easy by rail. Please remember to validate your ticket once purchased from the machine, there are small machines to do this. Careful though as we lost a ticket whilst trying to validate it. keep hold of the ticket whilst validating

My husband and I took the train into Florence on our last day. Had we realized how easy using the train was in Italy we would have ridden the train more often vs. driving.

The ticket machines were user friendly although we did have a little help from a fellow traveler. The trains were very clean and all of the signage was clear. We enjoyed our train ride to Florence.

The group i was with took a train to Florence which although arrived a little late, we were fascinated that it was a double decker train! Remember to validate your train ticket at the station though!

Station is a it shabby and does not have any staff. Unfortunately you have to view the variable timetable and the trains are not always running and are cancelled
