"Punctual, clean, efficient" Train Tip by BlueBeth

Train, Pisa: 48 reviews and 48 photos

Wherever we travel to we always try to use public transport while we're there. In Italy it's very straightforward, buy a ticket; this can be either from a machine or from a ticket office. In Pisa there are plenty of machines and the queues for the office are long, no brainer for us, machines all the way.
Once you've bought your ticket look on the departures board for the platform (binario, sometimes shortened to bin.) and time of your train. In the UK the timetables boards are ordered alphabetically by destination, however in Italy they're ordered chronologically so you can quickly see when the next train leaves.
Before you board the train you must validate your ticket, there are usually machines on each platform, if you don't validate your ticket you can be fined.
Trains are very rarely delayed and are a quick and efficient way of getting around, we were in Pisa for 4 full days and travelled to Lucca, Viareggio and Florence in that time.
