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

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.

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
