You have 3 options. 1. By train which is the easiest way, about 25 minutes away. 2. By bus, a little longer and not as comfortable but the cheapest way or 3. The way I recommend, a little more expensive but just so convenient call a company called Luccalimo, driver picks you up wherever you want and drops you off at your request. We used the company twice and were very pleased.
