bus from Siena to Suvereto (or near there)?

by Jcavilia

My daughter is studying in Siena, and wants to travel to Suvereto (in Livorno) on the weekend to visit some family friends. The bus/train trip to the nearest train station (at Campiglia Marittima), is long and slow, with connections in Florence and Pisa. Does anyone know if there's a bus more directly to Suvereto, or Campiglia Marittima, or Massa Maritimma, which is slightly further away?

I'm afraid

http://www.italybus.it/orario.asp?partenza=SIENA

does not list any bus connection.

There is a bus from Siena to Pisa airport which might save her some time (although there are few services):

It's around an hour to Campiglia Marittima from Pisa Centrale (your daughter would have to get bus, train or taxi for the 5/10-minute journey from Pisa Aeroporto).

Thanks. She knows how to get the bus from Siena to Firenze, where she can get a train to Pisa and change to the southbound train, which is probably easier than the Pisa airport bus. But she was hoping to find a route with fewer connections. Thanks, though.

Travel Tips for Siena

Terzo di San Martino

by croisbeauty

The quarter of San Martino, which is situated right next to Piazza Campo, is characteristic by its unusually tall 4-5 storey houses. It was the original residential nucleus of Siena that relied on the Castelvecchio for its defense. Starting from the 16th century, it was the ghetto, area of the city where the Jews were forced to live.

Alleyways.............

by leics

Do look out for the numerous alleyways which lead off the narrow Medieval streets of Siena. They are hugely evocative of what the city must have been like in those days; narrow and shaded, probably rather smelly (though not now), vibrant with noise and life. There are some wonderful glimpses and views to be had............my camera isn't brilliant, so maybe your photos will be better than mine.

Getting around in Siena is easy

by Trekki

Yes, it is easy, although one has to understand Siena Mobilità’s information overflow. And information overflow it is. There is a huge 9 MB (!!) and 68 pages brochure with all information one might need. Though in Italian only. Emphasis seems to be given to the bus transport outside of Siena, to all the tiny towns nearby and also to other famous Toscana towns. The information for Siena itself is rather thin, or I should say not explained enough. Small busses, called pollicini, have a quite expanded network but not exactly in the city centre around the Campo. Or I should better say that they travel from near the Campo in all different directions but radial/starlike. And there is no station for these small busses anywhere near Piazza Gramci, where busses to and from Firenze arrive and depart. But these pollicini stations have a rather intelligent schedule and information system. A touch screen electronic monitor is mounted at each station (the orange one in photo 2) and with quick clicks one can find the timetables for the desired busses. In addition, written information with bus numbers and stops is at these little stations.

Tickets can be bought in Tabaccherie, easy to detect with the big T on the shop sign. Each ticket costs 1 Euro, valid for pollicini and Siena urban busses. The word urban might be misleading, because it is not inside of the town walls but outside and means everything which belongs to Siena’s district. Note that the map of this urban service does not have north as it should be on maps but at the bottom..., which confused me, a map person, almost to unconsciousness....

This part of Siena Mobilità is where all maps can be downloaded as pdf.

Oh, and don't forget to validate the ticket inside the bus.

Resting up between walks

by painterdave

Take a look at the people kicking back. These shots were taken in July which will give you an idea of how many tourists are there. It didn't seem too crowded as Siena is a big town and everyone is not crowded together to see things.
This is where they hold the Palio. This horse race is held two times a year, and includes practice races.
More on this soon......

Duomo of Santa Maria dell'Assunta ( 5 photos)

by nicolaitan

This magnificent church was constructed in the 12th and 13th Centuries, although the facade was not finished until 1382. The design is attributed to Nicola Pisani, a mixture of Romanesque and Gothic architecture. However, based on certain features such as the overlarge rose window it is likely that several architects were involved at different levels of construction. The facade features 3 arched portals with triangular gables above. Directly above the entrance is the symbol of the Risen Christ. The last photo is the sequence includes the famous bronze of the middle portal and the adjacent marble work.The interior design represents the works of a Who's Who of late medieval and Renaissance masters. The pictures of 172 popes adorn the ceiling, the marble floor displays more than 50 sacred scenes. Masterpieces by Donatello, Michelangelo, the Pisanis, and della Quercia fill the church and adjacent Baptistery. The exterior is multicolored marble but the campanile and interior are in alternating stripes of black and white marble.
