"Coming by ship and catching the train to Florence" Trains Tip by maryandken

Trains, Florence: 28 reviews and 46 photos

We arrived at the port in Livorno and got a taxi right at the ship for 20 Euro's to take us to the train station. Some taxi's can hold 6 people, so it's good to share if there are others wanting to go as well. Once at the train station, it's easy to buy a RT ticket to Florence, and the train is nice, safe and comfortable. The station in Florence is the end of the line and well placed in the city - you come right out and walk a few blocks for historical sites or shopping. We just checked our times for when we needed to be back, and came back to the station to catch a return. Once back in Livorno , taxi's were waiting - so we just grabbed one back to the ship. It is too far to walk to the train station from where the ship is docked, so don't think you can do that.
