How to get from the port of Livorno to Florence?

If your cruise ship comes to the port of Livorno, you have the opportunity to see the sights of Florence during the day. The one way trip will take you about 1.5-2 hours. You can get to Florence by bus, train or order a transfer. Let’s consider all the options in detail:

  • Important: you need to book a bus ticket in advance, preferably immediately after buying a cruise. For certain dates, there may not be tickets for 3-4 weeks.

regional train

I advise only the most adventurous and experienced travelers to get to Florence by public transport because of the high risks of being late for the departure of the cruise ship. Strikes, delays and cancellations of regional trains in Italy are the norm. If suddenly you still decide to take a chance, then here is the logistics:

Near the port, you need to find the Grande 2 Porto Mediceo bus stop and take the LAM BLU bus to the Livorno Centrale station. Drive 9 stops, 11 minutes. The bus runs every 7-15 minutes. The official website with the schedule is here www.livorno.cttnord.it

At the station, you need to take the regional train, which in about 1 hour and 8 minutes should take you to the central station of Florence, Santa Maria Novella (S. Maria Novella).

If you suddenly missed the train, then the next one should be in an hour. The ticket costs 9.90 euros.
