transport from siena to lucca

by SusanMilligan

We want to travel from Siena on a Sunday in July to Lucca by bus or train. From what I can see, this will mean going via Pisa. Will there be buses from Siena to Pisa and onwards to Lucca on a Sunday? We are thinking of spending a couple of nights in Lucca, before returning home via Pisa.

trains are usually the best thing to do in Italy

check out trenitalia

BUT i do believe that for Siena the train station is not close to the centre of town

Jen is spot on - take the train from Siena to Lucca. Most of the services go via
Firenze, where you will need to change trains. The total journey time is around
3.5 hours.
From Lucca to Pisa is also doable by train. The station in Pisa is San Rossere(about 5 minutes walk from the leaning tower)

For train times look at http://www.ferroviedellostato.it/ and select English from the link in the top right hand corner. You can put the station names in, and the day and time of your travel, and it will give you the trains.

You can also go to http://www.trenitalia.com/en/index.html

Both sites will take you to the same timetable and booking page

There is a bus from Siena to Pisa airport, you would then have to make the 5 minute journey by train from pisa airport to pisa centrale where you can get a train to Lucca (it is true that the station near the tower, San Rossore, is on the Lucca line, but the trains that stop there all originate from centrale which is closer to the airport). Here is the link to the bus service http://www.trainspa.it/sienapisa.html

However, the bus takes two hours then you need to get to centrale and pick up the Lucca train, so all in all it is probably easier to (and quicker) to take a bus or taxi to Siena train station (2 km from centre) and train all the way. You will have to change once, but I think it will be quicker overall. If you go to www.trenitalia.com you will see that you have two options. The fastest way is to change trains at Empoli it takes around 45 minutes longer if you change at Florence.

I hope that helps clarify your options.

Travel Tips for Siena

Good drainage

by karenincalifornia

The center of Siena is the Piazza del Campo. All roads lead to the Piazza, so you can't miss it. When you arrive at the Piazza, you'll be overwhelmed by its the magnificence.

The Piazza, built in 1347, has some unique features. It was built in a semi-circular shape, with a concave slant, so that all water is directed to a large drain on one side. The stones were all laid out in a herringbone style. The herringbone paving is divided into nine sections, which is supposed to have had something to do with Siena's Government of Nine during medieval times. Along the edge of the Piazza are numerous bistros, cafes and gelati stands. It's a great place for people watching!

Who is Italy's Patron Saint?

by rexvaughan

For someone who was proclaimed Italy's patron saint by Pius II in 1939, Catherine of Siena seems to get little attention. Maybe she is the Rodney Dangerfield of saints ;-). There is a Sanctuary of St. Catherine in Siena, but it is in the shadow of a huge Dominican church and a little difficult to find. Her former home has been converted into the sanctuary and is a small but lovely, serene and well decorated place. You can even view her bedroom along with the magnificent frescoes and paintings. In the residence there are paintings showing her levitating around Siena. She was a significant figure in church history as she is said to be the one who persuaded Pope Gregory IX to return to Rome from Avignon in 1377.
Address: Via Tiratoio. Follow signs from San Domenico to "Santuario di Snata Caterina."

By Car: How Far/How Long...?

by Redang

Road distances to Siena from:
- Florence: 75 kms.
- Rome: 242 kms.
- Zurich (Switzerland: 657 kms.
- Madrid (Spain): 1.749 kms.

If you check the website, you'll find more info about other distances together with the best routes and driving times.

However, if you happen to be in Florence, I highly recommend to avoid the car and go by bus; it takes over one hour. In other cases, consider it by yourself.

Duomo

by croisbeauty

The magnificent Cathedral of Siena, begun in 1230, is an important point of reference for the whole of Italian Gothic arghitecture, since it provided a basic model for a cathedral and was subsequently adopted in many other Italian cities.
Unfortunatelly, during my visit to Siena, the front Romanesque facade by Giovanni Pisano was under the scafold and I couldn't admire its beauty.

Torre del Mangia

by m-joy

The tower of the Palazzo Comunale was named after the bell-ringer Mangiaguadagni. An entry of 6 Euro gives you access to the narrow, steep steps up on the tower with a brilliant view on Siena and the environment. There’s always a long queue in front of the entry, so try to buy tickets in advance or be there at noon, for example, when everybody has lunch. Besides you can buy a combi-ticket for the Palazzo and the tower for 10 Euro.
