How to Travel to Lucca
from Livorno Cruise Port

Basic guide for cruise passengers to travel from Livorno to Lucca: the best train schedules, taxi fares, both railway station locations, how to walk to the city center in Lucca and where are the Tourist Info Offices.

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 shore excursions to Lucca without including other sites like Torre del Lago or Pisa.

Consequently, the cruise traveler on these shore excursions will not fully enjoy Lucca nor have time to explore the other sites as well.

TThe good news is that Lucca is very easy to explore on-your-own as it has good train connections from Livorno.

Alternatively, a return Taxi ride will not cost more than €200.00 (up to four sharing a cab). Renting a car will cost less than a taxi and, therefore, is another option to 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.
