Transport Options –
Getting to and From Il Borghino
The nearest airport to Lucca is Pisa international Airport “Galileo Galileo” – 18 Miles from Lucca
Florence International Airport “Amerigo Vespucci” is 50 Miles from Lucca
If you are flying into Rome, Fiumicino Airport is 162 miles from Lucca.
Regular trains and buses run from both Pisa and Florence airports to Lucca and are very reasonably priced. Trains also run regularly from Rome airport but the trip is much longer and takes around 4.5 hours.
Check-in and Check-out
Check-in at Il Borghino is strictly 4pm on the day of arrival.
When booking your flights, we recommend you plan your arrival time in Lucca for around 15:30pm, to coincide with the group transfer to Il Borghino. There will be one scheduled pick-up only. Please email your arrival details to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as they are available. If you are unable to make the pick-up, we can arrange for a taxi to bring you to Il Borghino
Check-out at Il Borghino is strictly 09:30am on the last day. Please plan your departure flights accordingly.
price of your attendance includes transportation from Lucca to the retreat center on the first day of the retreat (start day) at 3:45pm. However there will not be transfers from the airport to Lucca, so please plan accordingly to be in Lucca by 3:45 if you'd like to take advantage of this group transfer. I am attaching a transport options document which has some useful information about getting to Lucca from Florence should you need it.
Your attendance cost also includes transportation back to Lucca on the final day), which gets you back to Lucca at 9:30am.
**Again, you will need to arrange travel from here to the airport.
You may also arrange private transfer to/from the retreat center, and we are happy to organize that for you. Just let me know by emailing me back at this address! FYI - the cost for a taxi from Florence to the center is around 130 – 150 Euro and journey time is about 1 hour 30 minutes.
