i want to take a train from lyon to milan or lyon to florence

I will be driving through France with my final destination in Annecy. I then need to get to Tuscany. Should I take a train from Lyon to Milan and then from Milan to Tuscany?

  • Hello Karen, yes that sounds reasonable if you go to Florence in Tuscany.
    Other tuscan destinations are harder to reach by train. Check your itinerary using our booking box on the RailEurope home page.
    have a great trip!

    Hi Karen,

    A connection from Annecy to Florence would involve 2 train changes along the way; once in Chambery and then once in Turin. To view schedules for this on our website you would piece together the connection by doing separate searches for each segment. Therefore, you would do one search for trains from Annecy to Chambery, another search for connecting trains from Chambery to Turin, and another search for connecting trains from Turin to Florence. You would do these searches under 'Check Fares and Schedules' on the homepage of our website, www.raileurope.com.

    Many other popular destinations in Tuscany are easily accessible by regional trains. There are direct regional trains from Florence to towns such as Siena, Pisa, Lucca, Montecatini, Livorno, Chiusi, Arezzo, Empoli, etc.. You can check ticket costs for any of these trains under 'Check Fares and Schedules'.

    Trains in France and Italy can only be booked within 90 days of an intended date of departure.

    Just to follow-up, if you decide to depart from Lyon instead of Annecy, the connection would still involve changing trains in Chambery and Turin en route. However, there is one other possibility if you depart out of Lyon, which involves changing trains in Geneva and then Milan. To view schedules and costs for that connection, you would do one search for trains from Lyon to Geneva, another search for connecting trains from Geneva to Milan and then another search for connecting trains from Milan to Florence.
