Cruise ship travelers--buy train tickets in advance from Livorno to Lucca??

Jump to last reply

Hi, I would really appreciate if someone can help me answer questions on buying the train tickets from Livorno to Lucca. We will dock at 7am from cruise ship. Here are my questions:
1. Are we better off to buy train tickets in advance to avoid waiting in the long line at the train station as thousands of people from the cruise ship will crowd the station? If so, can we buy the tickets that will not limit us to fixed schedule as we do not know for sure what time we will be arriving at the train station?
2. Will the auto ticket machine take American credit card without chip?
3. Will the tickets purchased at the machine be flexible in boarding time or schedule specific?
4.Based on your experiences, what can one expect at the Livorno train station without the advanced tickets? How many ticket counters are there? How many auto ticket machines are there at the station? I s it adequate enough to serve thousands off the cruise ship?
5. Does any one know any nearby tobacco shop that will sell tickets?
Thanks fr any advice you can give.
