Labor Day in Siena

by ivan0902

Hi,

I will be going to Siena from Florence by train on 1 May, Labor Day.

Are the buses running on that holiday from the train station to city centre?

If the buses are not running, do the taxis operate on that day?

Lastly, if I'm forced to walk from the train station to il Campo, is it safe to walk? That is, I'll not be walking through dodgy neighborhoods and there are actual pavements to walk, and I'm not forced to dodge traffic on the road.

Greatly appreciate any help.

Regards,
Ivan

Ths busses will run on the Sunday schedule and there will be taxis working as usual.
As for walking, the distance between station and Piazza del Campo is 1,2 km so quite short. I don't think you will walk through anything like slums; the pavements might be less frequent, they are difficult to implement in the small roads of ancient cities. So just keep right and pay attention and I am sure you will be fine.

Enjoy your trip

Are you sure about the busees Daniela? Until a couple of years ago there were no buses on May 1st in Siena, it was probably the only day in the year without buses.

In any case, taxis will operate as usual.

For further information about Siena, this web-page created by the municipality may be helpful: http://www.comune.siena.it/main.asp?id=1437&l=en

Well, I would assume they run in Siena as they run in any other city in Italy on Labour day. However, to be sure the best thing is to contact the Tourist office in Siena: http://www.terresiena.it/index.php?lang=en

Buses in Parma do not run on May 1st, nor on Christmas day. And I am sure they did not run in Siena on May 1st 2007.

I have checked the website of the public transports in Siena but it says nothing about it, so it is a good advice to check the website of the Tourist Office.

Hi,

Thanks for your replies. I actually did email the Siena Tourism office before but there was no reply.

I will just turn up at Siena and see how it goes then.

Travel Tips for Siena

Wander the Town

by guell

After seeing the tower, the baptistery and the cathedral we were free to wander. Seina is such a beautifully preserved Gothic town, and once the day-trippers left we had the streets to ourselves. My fondest memory of Siena was walking around town at dusk and in the evening.

Soccer games - the real sienese in action

by alysania

Soccer games in Italy are always exciting, yet moreso exciting are games in small sleepy towns - you find out rather quickly that the residents aren't so laid-back and show their true passions. Seating can be cheap if it's not an important game - 1 euro or so. the "Red Curve" is the cheapest seating athough not the best, but it definitely lets you take in the atmosphere!

Transportation: Bus to Florence

by m-joy

Busses to Florence start at Piazza Gramsci in Siena every hour. The blue Sita busses bring you to Firenze Autostatione Sita in Viale dei Cardona close to the main train station. The price is 6,50 Euro one way.

Il Campo

by viddra

This unique place has the shape of a big concave shell. The paving is made of red bricks arranged in fishbone style, divided into nine strips of travertine (in memory of the Government of the Nine, who ruled over the city from 1292 to 1355).

Fairs and markets used to be held here, and also tournaments, buffalo and bull races. Some say that this is where corida originates from.

The square is surrounded by several palaces, including the Palazzo Comunale (Town Hall), finished at the beginning of the 1300s. It's a great work of architecture and houses yet another important art museum.

Some of the palaces belong to the wealthiest of families (the Sansedoni, the Piccolomini and the Saracini),

The most famous palio in Italy

by micajo

The Palio di Siena (known locally as the Palio delle Contrade), the most famous palio in Italy, is a horse race held twice each year on July 2 and August 16 in Siena, in which the horse and rider represent one of the seventeen Contrade, or city wards. A magnificent pageant precedes the race, which attracts visitors and spectators from around the world.
Both horse and rider are dressed in the colours and arms of the Contrade: Aquila, Bruco, Chiocciola, Civetta, Drago, Giraffa, Istrice, Leocorno, Lupa, Nicchio, Oca, Onda, Pantera, Selva, Tartuca, Torre and Valdimontone.
