Florence to Siena bus

by Carmelmom

Hi! We would like to take the SITA bus from Florence to Siena (round trip) on a Saturday. I am having trouble reading their online schedule as far as which buses run on Saturdays. We would like to leave around 8 or 9am from Florence. Can anyone tell me my time options for the rapid bus on Saturday, June21? Also, what is the fare? Any discount for children? Are we safe to just get our tickets that day at the bus station, or is this a busy time period/ need to get them in advance? Thank you!!

Re: Florence to Siena bus

Dee, let's see if we can make this a bit clearer (bus schedules are nothing if not compact, er, compressed, er, something ;-) ).

Saturday departures from Florence to Siena:
6:45 a.m.
8:10 a.m.
9:10 a.m.
10:10 a.m.
and so on.

"Feriale (weekdays)" includes Saturdays, unlike in the US.

For the return, we have:
4:10 p.m.
5:10 p.m.
5:50 p.m.
6:20 p.m.
7:10 p.m.

The brown squares at http://www.sitabus.it/sita-toscana/Firenze-Siena08.pdf (which I assume you are looking at) mean that the bus is run by TRA.IN. (no, not a train ;-) ), and the blue squares mean that the bus is run by SITA.

This page does not show fares. I found on another website some fares, but they are by kilometer (as is not unusual for intercity bus routes), so I can't be exactly sure what they will charge you. www.viamichelin.com says that the distance is 79 kilometers (from center to center, maybe not from bus stop to bus stop). The fare given on the www.sienamobilita.it website (http://www.sienamobilita.it/EN/extraurbano.html) says that 79 kilometers is 4.70 euro one way and that 80+ kilometers is 5.20 euro (6.00 euro and 8.00 euro respectively if you buy the tickets on the bus instead of the convenient ticket agency at the bus stop)...at the least, you might have a general idea of the approximate cost...

The price is 6.50euro. It is not possible to reserve seats for the service with seats being first come first served. The buses do tend to be very full, so make sure you're at the front of the queue at the platform.

Travel Tips for Florence

If you need stamps. . .

by MStars

If you're looking for stamps, you don't need to go all the way to the post office. Just stop by at any Tabacchi and ask if they have stamps. They usually have a book of different kinds, sometimes they run out.

Florentine Football

by fishandchips

This is a cross between ceremony, soccer, rugby and wrestling. It is one of the more unique sporting events in the world and the 2nd in the region with the famous Palio in Siena. Its origins date back to 1530. The game starts after the procession has left the field. The teams, formed of 27 players on either side, face each other for 50 long minutes when almost anything is allowed, blows quite often degenerated into violent fights and brawls. Apparently the head man - the Master of the Field - only intervenes when there are real fights.

The players have to pass the barrier of the opposing team and try to get the ball into the adversary's net which takes up the entire width of the field. The ball must be carefully aimed because, if a mistake or deviation is made, the opposing team wins the point. Each point corresponds to half a "caccia" and the teams change ends after every two half "cacce". The game is played by men in the colours of the ancient 4 quarters of old Florence. The game I saw some of was played in Piazza Santa Croce - in front of the Church. A mouth guard would appear to be a must!!

Most fun in Florence

by EllenH about San Lorenzo Market

I have been to Florence three times and all three times I have loved the San Lorenzo market. I do not even need to buy anything, I just love to be there. Leather, I wish I would have come home with a new jacket. 100-200 euros

Train connections - Eurostar

by jorgec25

The Eurostar Train Service is a safe, confortable and generally good way to travel. I took the connection from Venice to Florence, and returned, and was very pleased with the Service. The trains departed and arrived on time, and Trenitalia has a very good online Service. You can buy the tickets at home , and board the train without any delays.

Lunch after visit Uffizi

by lina112 about Ristorante Pizzeria Uffizi

After visiting The Uffizi we decided have some lunch, just in the outside of the museum in Via del Castellani we found pizzeria uffizi and in that moment we remembered that the night before the recepcionist recomended this restaurant, he said that food was good and cheap and he was right. We had 2 pizzas and 2 soft drinks, we repeated the same pizzas that the night before, a 4 season and toscana one, price was very good about 8-9 euros per person, not bad in Florence. The service was very good and staff very helpful.

Después de visitar la galeria Uffizi era hora de almorzar algo, justo a la salida del museo en via dei castellani está el restaurante Uffizi, en ese momento recordamos el recepcionista nos lo recomendó porque es barato y la comida buena y así fue. Nos comimos dos pizzas, creo que repetimos al igual que la noche anterior, fueron una cuatro estaciones y una toscana con bebida, salimos a unos 8 euros por persona nada mal para ser Florencia. El servicio fue muy bueno y el personal muy atento.
