What is the best way and least expensive way to get from Florence to Parma?
To see the cheapest train connections from Florence to Parma (€12.25), click 'all solutions' once your first page of train times has loaded on http://trenitalia.it/homepage_en.html - and use a date within the next seven days as these prices are not displayed any further in advance on the site although they do not change.
just curious, why bus from Bologna to Parma? That is a 89 km (55 miles) much easier to take the train, very frequent service too : )
If you look on the Trenitalia website, you will see the variety of options. The most economical trains are not that frequent, may require a change and/or don't depart from Santa Maria Novella. The slower train while less expensive do take longer vs. the fast AV train at 24 euro 2nd class.
From Bologna to Parma, the regional train is fine because the trip is so short, and will cost 5.80 euro, doubt you could get a bus for that amount.
please post your trip report when you come back!
Thank you for your advice.
