Everybody says the best way to discover Tuscany is rent a car and drive around. It's a good advice, but... what if you can't drive or simply wish to travel by train? I know so many people who loves traveling by train, probably because they are not used to trains in their country (ok, I'm one of those!).
In Tuscany there are so many cities you can reach by train but now I will talk about great places by the sea. Summer is at the door and, especially for who is living here, going to the beach is a priority! :)
From Florence SMN to Viareggio: 1:30 hour
From Viareggio train station to the beach: 1 km (0,6 mile)
