The best form of Transportation to Florence

Hello, We are getting off a 7 day cruise in Civitavecchia and then want to go to Florence where we have booked a hotel for two days but I am having a hard time finding direct transportation to there (we don't want to lose a whole day taking trains). Can anyone please tell me another way we can get there so we don't lose a whole day.

Thanks for your help.

Civitavecchia to Pisa Centrale is two hours by Frecciabianca train

Pisa Centrale to Firenze SMN is one hour by unreserved regionale train.

You could also travel via Roma Termini (slightly faster, but more expensive).

Total travel time (including connection time) should be under four hours.


Driving will take about 3 hours, so the train service is not that bad after all.
