Lucca is probably one of the most underrated Tuscan towns amongst cruise ship excursions and passengers. As a matter of fact, and surprisingly, most cruise lines do not offer excursions to Lucca without including other sites like Torre del Lago and/or Pisa.

Consequently, the cruise traveler on these shore excursions will neither fully enjoy Lucca nor really have time to explore the other sites as well. The good news is that Lucca is very easy to explore on your own as it has very good train connections from Livorno. Alternatively, a return Taxi ride may not cost more than €200.00 (sharing by 4) and Rent a car is certainly an option to also consider.

Travel by By Train

Although there isn't a direct train connection from Livorno Centrale - you will need to change train in Pisa (or in Viareggio) - Lucca is one hour away and the train ticket costs €5.50 (€13.40 on the Frecciabianca service).

Be aware that there are only four trains early in the morning although quite a few to return. The train station in Lucca is just outside the medieval walls and no more than a pleasant 10-minute walk away from the main attractions. If Lucca is on your exploration plans make sure you double-check train times.
