You have to drive in the A12/E80 Highway (direction Genua) e then in the A11/E76 direction Lucca and Florence, exit Lucca Est; from Lucca you have to take the SS 12 to arrive.
If you prefer to use the public transportation, you can reach Bagni di Lucca by train usually with a trip from one to one hour and half long from Pisa or half an hour from Lucca (line Pisa-Lucca and then line Lucca-Aulla).
An other option is to arrive at the Peretola-Florence airport; from the airport of Florence you can reach Bagni di Lucca in an hour and fifteen minutes driving through the A11/E7 highway until Capannori exit, and then in direction Lucca; from Lucca you have to take the SP 12 to arrive.
