Trenitalia – Discovering Tuscany


Italy is one of Europe’s prime destinations and this is certainly due to the variety and richness of its region. Tuscany is one of those regions in Italy where we can talk about unspoilt landscapes, perpetuating traditions and intense history. This Italian region is also widely regarded as the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance.

Travelling on board the Italian domestic trains, visitors will witness the green hills coated with olives gropes and vineyards before arriving in historic cities like Pisa and Florence where Rennaissance art overflows.

The discovery of the Tuscany region in Italy can in fact start from Pisa, a global tourist hub. The Italian city of Pisa is full of attractions and landmarks. The Leaning Tower of Pisa ranks as one of the world’s most popular monuments. The Leaning Tower of Pisa was created in 1173. It began to tilt when the structure was only 10m high. Several architectures have tried, without any success, to restore the balance.

But that’s not the only thing to see. Around the leaning Tower of Pisa, one can see the architectural wonder of the Cathedral and the Baptistry. The particular architecture results from the influence of Spanish and North African culture in Pisa.

The Linea 4 bus from the leaning Tower of Pisa will take visitors to the Pisa Centrale railway station. From the Pisa Centrale train station, travellers can take an Italian domestic train to Florence to visit more of Tuscany. The train tickets are available on the Rail Europe website. Holders of a Italy rail pass can board the Trenitalia-operated train without paying any supplement. The Italian domestic train from Pisa to Florence does not require any reservation.

The travel duration is approximately 1h. The train stops at the Florence Santa Maria Novella railway station where you can find Italian trains to reach other cities in Italy. The railway station is known as Stazione di Santa Maria Novella in Italian. The city of Florence (Firenze) is one of Italy’s most important old cities with a rich legacy of art and architecture. The city is widely popular with not to be missed landmarks and attractions like the Galleria Uffizi, the Galleria dell’Accademia which is home to Michelangelo’s David and the Museo dell Opera del Duomo. Florence has more to visit of course.

Taking the Italian domestic trains operated by Trenitalia is the perfect way to visit Tuscany. Holder of an Italy rail pass can continue their visit to more of Tuscany. All Trenitalia tickets are available on the Rail Europe website.
