The pretty Tuscan town of Lucca is served by the Lucca train station, which was built in 1846. There have been some updates to the building since, but the overall structure remains original, including the two storeys of arches on the facade.
There are five platforms at the Lucca station. This is the end-point of two lines - the Pisa-Lucca line and the Lucca-Aulla line - and a stop along the line that runs between Viareggio and Florence. The only trains serving Lucca are regional trains, not high-speed trains. Still, traffic through the station is fairly constant, especially with travelers visiting the popular day-trip destination of Lucca from nearby Florence or Pisa.
The multi-level building has a ticket office, restrooms, a small shop, and a cafe on the main level. There is no luggage storage at Lucca’s station.
While day trippers can easily walk into Lucca’s historic center from the train station, there are local buses that stop near the station as well. There is also a daily bus that runs from Lucca’s train station to the Pisa airport.
