    Hi Everett,

    A connection from Bologna to Lucca takes just over 2 hours in duration and involves changing trains once in Florence along the way. You would check schedules and purchase tickets by entering the route on our homepage, www.raileurope.com.

    Trains from Bologna to Florence are high-speed 'Le Frecce' (Frecciarossa and Frecciargento) trains and high-speed Italo trains. Trains from Florence to Lucca are regional (Regionale) trains.

    If you'd like to book an Italo train for the segment from Bologna to Florence, you would have to piece together the connection by doing a separate search for each segment. Therefore, you would do one search for trains from Bologna to Florence and another search for connecting trains from Florence to Lucca.

    To view the most possible options when you do these searches, you would want to choose the specific hour for each set of departures you wish to view (i.e. '01 pm' for trains that depart during the 1 o'clock hour, '02 pm' for trains that depart during the 2 o'clock hour, etc). Ideally, you would be able to click the 'Later Trains' button that appears at the bottom of the list of schedules that display. However, there may currently be an error on our site that prevents more trains from displaying when you do this.

    In Italy, tickets for regional (Regionale and Regionale Veloce) trains can only be booked within 60 days of an intended date of departure, tickets for 'Le Frecce' (Frecciarossa, Frecciargento and Frecciabianca) trains and InterCity trains can only be booked within 90 days of an intended date of departure, and tickets for Italo trains can be booked up to 120 days in advance of a departure.

  • Thank you so much for such a comprehensive reply. I am attending a wedding in Lucca in September and plan to see Florence prior to the wedding and Venice afterwards. Much obliged for your response.
