Getting here

Nearest airports are Pisa and Florence both have carhire facilities. To check prices you can use Car Rental which is an agency that usually gives good prices, car hire outside the very popular times is cheap. Taxis here are quite expensive so car hire is usually a good option.

To get here by train, from Pisa airport, take the shuttle bus to Pisa Centrale, at the station there is a ticket machine, buy a ticket. The most regular service runs about every two hours to Castelnuovo di Garfagnana. Some of the trains are direct, some will involve a change at Lucca. You can check train times here.

There are a couple of trains that stop at our local station at the bottom of the hill which is Fosciandora – Ceserana which are around the middle of the day, again you can check the timetable.

Important note: If you are coming by train, don’t book incoming flights late at night or outgoing flights early in the morning as the trains will not be running at those times.


You can check the state of the snow at Abetone on this webcam site.
