Florence, 1 July 2021
Tuscany and its wonders are at the heart of the Trenitalia (FS Italiane Group) summer season.
An event was held to present “La Toscana in Treno” (“Tuscany by Train”), one of the Guides in the new “I Regionali da Vivere” series published by Giunti Editore and Trenitalia, dedicated to the discovery of Italy aboard Regional trains.
A range of tourist destinations in the region of Tuscany sees the train as the common thread uniting the destinations and making them easier to reach, thanks to the increase in services presented in Trenitalia’s summer timetable.
To illustrate the contents, present this morning at the Giunti Editore headquarters at Villa La Loggia in Florence were Stefano Baccelli, Councillor for Transport of the Tuscany Region, Sabrina De Filippis, Regional Business Director of Trenitalia and Martino Montanarini, CEO of Giunti Editore.
Over 50 trains each day to discover the Etruscan Coast, a stetch renowned not only for its extensive beaches and rocky coves but also for its vast pine forests, fascinating villages and important archaeological sites. The service along the coast between Pisa and Grosseto is enriched by 8 direct trains to/from Florence and 14 to/from Rome.
Elba Link, the new train + ferry service born from the collaboration between Trenitalia (FS Italiane Group) and Toremar-Moby, shall operate from 24 June. Via the Trenitalia website, it will be possible to make a single purchase that covers not only the railway route from any Italian station up to Piombino Marittima, but also the ferry or high-speed vessel, selecting a location on the Island of Elba as the final destination (Portoferraio, Rio Marina or Cavo).
This new service arises from the collaboration between Trenitalia and Busitalia to allow an integrated train + bus ticket to be purchased in a single transaction for any route between the Firenze SMN railway station and the Florentine airport or vice-versa.
For bookings, simply select Firenze Aeroporto (Florence Airport) as the arrival or departure station.
