Become enchanted by the rolling hills of Tuscany

Tuscany is a highly popular region in North Central Italy, rich in history, culture and known for its amazing food, wine and hospitality. Florence is the largest city in the Tuscan region, yet other highlights of the region include the leaning tower of Pisa, Chanti wine region, the medieval village of San Gimignano, Duomo of Siena, Duomo of Florence, Lucca and its Roman amphitheatres. Go for a bike ride around the Tuscan hills. Taste some local cheeses and olive oil. Soak up the atmosphere in a busy local restaurant. The possibilities are endless, and you will not want to leave this incredible part of Italy. Trains connect most of the region with many regional trains servicing the main routes. 

Florence to Pisa is just over an hour by regional train (it is not possible to reserve seats on this service), which passes through some gorgeous small villages giving you a real feel for the Italian countryside. The main train station in Pisa is Centrale station, approximately a 30 minute walk to the Leaning Tower of Pisa, with luggage storage available. However, there are some slower train services that will stop at Pisa S. Rossore station, only a 5 minute walk from the Tower. These trains do not run as frequently as trains to/from Centrale station and there are no luggage storage facilities.

You will be able to use these trains with any pass that covers Italy; however any fast trains you take will require a compulsory seat reservation before you hop on. Regional trains do not require a seat reservation.
