Best Way to Get from Siena to Florence

The best way to go from Florence Airport to Siena is highly subjective and depends on the individual needs of each traveller. Having said that, the primary target this how-to guide intends to shoot down is not giving you the unquestionably “best” mode of transportation—although you can probably guess what we would choose— in contrast, we want to give you all the info you need to make an informed decision that works best for you.

If you’re travelling with kids, taking a train or bus may be a little bit hectic, whereas if you are flyin’ solo, then it would be a perfect option. What we intend to achieve is,  that after having read this article, you will have made up your mind and chosen the best option for you. Now, before we go any further, let’s talk about Siena a little.

Siena, a captivating city nestled in the heart of Tuscany, boasts a history as impressive as its breathtaking architecture. From its origins as an ancient Etruscan settlement to its prominence as a mediaeval powerhouse, Siena sure has a cool story to tell. As you wander through its narrow streets, marvel at the majestic Palazzo Pubblico, home to the iconic frescoes by Ambrogio Lorenzetti.

Don’t miss the awe-inspiring Siena Cathedral, with its dazzling marble facade and intricate mosaics. And of course, a trip to Siena wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the famous Piazza del Campo, where the exhilarating Palio horse race takes place. Soak in the history, culture, and beauty of Siena in style, by booking an AtoB Transfer today.

Is there a Florence to Siena Train?

There is indeed! Although not directly from the airport, you can still get to Siena purely by travelling on the rails.

You will first need to catch a tram from the airport, namely the T2, which will drop you off at the Santa Maria Novella station. The trip from the airport is around 19 minutes and has a total of 11 stops. It won’t drop you off exactly in the station, so you will have to walk from the “Unity” tram stop, to the train station, which is around 4 minutes on foot.

After arriving at the station, you will be able to board a direct train to Siena, offered by TrenItalia. Check the departures board at the airport to determine which platform your train is departing from. The regional trains, usually with 5 digit number codes are the only direct, whereas the Regionale Veloce trains will need a change half-way through the journey.

Tickets cost €9.80 and can be purchased easily online, to avoid any delays at the station.

The train will drop you off at the central station in Siena, which is just a short walk from the city centre.

How to Catch a Bus from Florence to Siena

As was the case with the train, so too is the situation with taking a bus – there is no direct bus to Siena from the airport. No worries though, as you can connect a total of 2 easy bus rides and get to Siena in no time! It is even quicker by bus to get there.

So, first of all, you will need to catch the R03 bus from the airport, for a total of 11 stops (5 mins). Alight the bus at the Leopolda Michelucci stop. Following this, walk to the Leopolda station, and board the 131R bus directly to Siena. This bus trip will take a total of 1 hour 14 minutes and there are 20 stops along the way.

The cost of a ticket is €1.50, although this only covers 70 minutes, so you may want to opt for two tickets, or buy a daily pass. All tickets can be bought from kiosks, whereas others can be bought directly on the Tuscany bus official website.

Various Transportation Options from Siena to Florence

You may always take a taxi or arrange for a private shuttle if public transportation isn’t your thing. Standard Florence taxi taxis are an easy method to move around the city, but due to their fee structure, they can be pricey. The base rate for yellow taxis is fixed under this system, but there are extra charges for things like every sixth mile and waiting time.

This may result in expensive costs, particularly if your trip is far. Even if you ask the driver in advance, they can decide to add an extra charge if there is traffic. AtoB is the perfect solution if you wish to know the actual cost of your vacation before entering.
