    Ciao Alannah,

    Glad the information has been useful!!

    I'm assuming you're heading up with the train, right? In this case, know that San Piero a Sieve is the train stop right before Borgo San Lorenzo so you'll need to make that stop first.
    Then walk to the office to pick up the tickets, then head back to catch the train to Borgo.
    Here's the map from the station to the media center.
    It doesn't seem far - you can also take the bus - click on the bus link, it will show you the route (305B or 307A).

    Have fun at the trials and weekend!! Do let us know if all of the logistics turn out as we've shared or if you find changes that would be useful to share with others for next year too ;-)!

    Hi,

    Thank you so much for that information!
    Yes, I am hoping to use public transport, and I am so pleased to know that it isn't far from the train station, but please may you send me the link again, I can't seem to get that one to work!

    Thanks,
    Alannah

    Ciao Lourdes,

    Thank you for the link it is very useful and I am happy to know where the centre is.

    Would it be better to get to the circuit from San Piero a Sieve or Borgo San Lorenzo? As on the map they both look similar distances.

    Thanks,
    Alannah

    Default trains and shuttles to Mugello circuit

    As far as we know, the shuttles from the train station to the circuit run from Borgo San Lorenzo.... but if you get to San Piero and find shuttles are going to the circuit, then that is certainly a very good opportunity to head straight from there to Scarperia!!
    If you do were to find shuttles there, let us know because it would be great info to share with others as well!!

    Default Train issues

    Hi, I am staying in Florence for the MotoGP race weekend and plan to attend the race on the saturday and sunday
    As many other people on the forum, I am also looking at public transport options to get to the track.
    I would prefer using the train service as there is less chance of delays obviously so had planned to get the train for Florence to San Piero a Seive as suggested and then get the bus from there to Scarperia but when I typed in my destinations into trenitalia, it came up with no travel solution found.

    Although you have suggested going to Borgo San Lorenzo because of the shuttle buses, but it still came up with no solution when I put it in the destination

    Any ideas why and is this a good route to take in order to avoid traffic and delays as much as possible?

    Thanks alot

    Tasha

    Default train to Mugello is best option

    ciao Tasha,

    The info you have found is still valid, it is just that the Trenitalia site only has info on trains for 2 months from now... so you cannot see scheduled trains for June yet!

    So best solution is train to either San Piero a Sieve or Borgo San Lorenzo and then shuttle bus to the race circuit - and yes, there are buses from San Piero too.

    Hi Lourdes.

    Thank you for the effort you put into this forum. There's some really good info here for us travelers.

    We arrive in Florence Wednesday and are travelling up to Mugello and back for Saturday qualifing & Sunday race.

    We are going to get the train from florence to borgo S Lorenzo and bus or walk from there. Do you know if the shuttle buses run all weekend or just sunday also do you think it would be prudent to buy our tickets now?
    We are flying into Pisa and will be using the train a lot. Have you heard about any cheap rail cards we could use?

    Thanks

    Ciao Zooks,

    You'll be mainly using regional trains so there is no need to buy tickets ahead of time as they are no reserved seats on them - first come, first seated

    The extra free shuttles seem to only be for Sunday. For Saturday, take a look at the article posted above and at the bus schedules I linked since I think you'll just be taking the regular bus that runs from Borgo to Scarperia. I am pretty sure there are likely to be EXTRA shuttles offered on this weekend, it is pretty major so I'd say to not worry about being stranded at all.

    I'd love it if you can give me feedback next week about how both days turn out as far as transportation goes, whether you have any problems with train or buses or if everything goes smoothly. I know the region has been working hard to make sure things go smoothly but there is lack of details of how things work online!

    As far as rail cards, how many days total? It seems passes are sold for specific routes (like monthly passes) and some passes are more expensive than buying tickets --- so it totally depends on what you're thinking of doing. Most regional trains are not that expensive (8-9 euros one way between Florence and Pisa and Florence and Siena).
