Trains to Barga, Lucca from Florence
I am travelling with a friend from Rome to Florence. Our hotel is in Barga, Lucca. If we take the high speed train to Florence, at which station should we disembark?what is the fastest way to Lucca? Bus or Train? If train, which are the connecting train stations? where can we get a bus to our hotel?

Getting to Barga
You will get off the train at Firenze SMN (that is the Santa Maria Novella Stop).
This article here should help you with getting to Barga.
From Florence you can decide if you want to take the train to Pisa Central or go directly to Lucca. I would opt for Lucca - so you have more options to get to Barga...I would also talk to the hotel you are staying in - just to be sure they don't offer a shuttle service and they will definitely know if there is a bus that will deliver you close to their doorsteps.
