driving Lucca to Modena

What is the fastest and most direct route from Lucca to Modena and do you have an idea of how long it will take. Thanks.

You can get driving directions, fairly realistic times, and estimated costs (fuel and tolls) from www.viamichelin.com

Maybe not the fastest...if you want to go through some amazing scenery and sample local mountain dishes that you will dream about when your home then take the SS12 route sign posted Abetone. It will take you past the spa town of Bagni di Lucca then just keep following Abetone/Modena.

This road is a test base for Lambo and Ferrari so keep an eye out for them.

Regards

John

I second Johnster's recommendation. When staying in Lucca we like to drive to Abetone, stopping there for lunch at La Casina di Enrice Zanni on Via Brennero, the home made pasta with porcini mushrooms is a particular favourite.

The most direct route is via the Autostrada from Lucca to Bologna to Modena via Prato (just outside Firenze) We had a luncheon with friends and it took a little over two hours.
