Good to Know

If you will be heading off in the morning, look up the departure times on the Trenitalia website, even if you will be buying tickets at the station.
They are fewer departures in the morning, there is typically a gap between 09:10 and 11:38.
The departures are more frequent in the afternoon, in some hours after 13:00 there are two departures, one of which will be a slightly slower train.

Final Destination: Viareggio* or Lucca
*Not all trains from Firenze that have Viareggio as a final destination travel via Montecatini Terme, so take care when boarding the trains at Firenze S.M. Novella.

All trains also call at: Pistoia

Montecatini Centro station/stazione lives up to its name with a location close to the heart of the town.

But all trains will call first at a station named Montecatini.
This is where you should leave the train to transfer to a bus or taxi.
But if you'll be walking into town, remain on the train until it arrives at Montecatini Centro.

Most trains are 2nd class only on this route.
