You can reach Florence (Santa Maria Novella train station) by train departing from Viareggio, the journey takes about 1 hour 40 minutes.

Where to park your car at the Viareggio train station


If you prefer to go to Florence by car, it takes about 1h 30′ with normal traffic.

To park the car, we recommend two solutions:

  • Villa Costanza parking close to the highway exit and clearly indicated with connections to the center (station Santa Maria Novella) every 8 minutes – line T1 and T2 of the tram (20′ ride) – for more information:
  • The Parkplatz Fortezza Fiera, the car park is quite easily accessible and it’ is just a 20 minute walk from the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, a nice walk through the central market area.
