TRANSPORT IN TUSCANY

AIRPORTS

TRAINS & BUSES 
  • ITALIAN NATIONAL RAIL (Trenitalia). The new Frecciarossa high-speed trains are not cheap but worth the money (Florence-Venice just over 2hrs.)
  • Online TIMETABLE of most of southern Tuscany's bus connections 
  • SENA Coaches to all major Italian cities from Siena, Florence and Grosseto. Prices are lower, but trips take in most cases quite a bit longer than on the train. 
  • Sita bus line from Florence - Siena. The buses arrive in the center of Siena. There are also trains between Siena and Florence. It's a slightly longer trip and the train station is 10 minutes on a bus from the town center (the buses part from the shopping center opposite the train station).
  • TRAIN Buses in Siena and also running to most towns in the province of Siena (e.g. Siena - Montalcino).  
  • RAMA Bus service in Southern Tuscany, focusing on the province of Grosseto (most local towns) plus transport from Southern Tuscany to Siena and Florence.
