How do I get to the train station from the cruise port in Livorno?

Livorno Centrale train station is too far from the harbor to get there on foot. You can take a taxi for approximately € 20 per taxi (4 persons one way) or you opt for the combination shuttle bus and public transport. The latter is the most popular option and it's very simple. Here are the steps to take.

step 1

Take the shuttle bus from your cruise ship to the stop at the back of Piazza Grande.

step 2

At Piazza Grande, take the LAM BLU (former bus N°1) or LAM ROSSA (former bus N°2) to Livorno Centrale. The bus stops are located along adjacent Via Grande and no longer on the square itself. The ride between Piazza Grande and Livorno Centrale takes about 5 to 10 minutes, depending on traffic conditions. A single ticket costs €1,20 per person. Buses run frequent every 7 to 10 minutes.

TIP: Buy your bus ticket in advance at the Tourist Office, at ticket machines or at a Tabacchi kiosk. On the bus, you usually pay € 1 more.

step 3

Take the train from Livorno Centrale to Florence Santa Maria Novella

step 4

Florence Santa Maria Novella train station is on walking distance from the city center.
