Does any one know the best way to get to Porretta Terme using public transport? We will be starting from Lucca.

Local train to Pistoia, then ride on another local train towards Bologna: it'll stop in Porretta :)

Hi, there.

We will be visiting Porretta Terme in July for the Soul Festival. What would be a good day trip to take from the town. We have one full day free!

Thanks!

The pensione- ristorante Monte Piella has both inexpensive rooms and highly regarded locally isnspired food.

To get there from Porretta you have to catch a 787! :-)

less than 15 minutes.

Of course for a whole day you could take the train, one way for Bologna or the other for Pistoia... which you probably know if you've worked out how to get to Porrette Terme :-)

That railway line has interesting history:

This is in Castelluccio

Open in Chrome and you should be offered an (approximate) English translation.

This is the restaurant

I realise I did not make clear in my first message that that restaurant is in Castelluccio.

If searching for more info on Castelluccio, note that there are other Castelluccios in Italy. Search for Catelluccio Porretta.
