From the Highway A11 take the direction Florence, exit Lucca East, follow the indications for Abetone for 6 km and then the directions for Matraia and Villa Reale. There is a free parking outside the park, near the entrance.
PLEASE NOTE: summer / autumn 2022 it is advisable to reach Villa Reale using Via del Brennero. We therefore advise against the Capannori exit of the highway as Viale Europa is affected by works in progress that allow transit only from the Villa to the highway (from north to south) and not vice versa.
Line 59 from Lucca: the bus leaves from Piazzale Verdi, passing from the Lucca Railway Station, and makes all stops outside the walls of the city before to reach the park entrance. The admission to the park is discounted for those showing the ticket of public transport.
