transport to vineyards

by silverduo

Hi
We will be staying in Siena in September 09 and want to visit Dievole Winery about 15km from Siena. We like to do things alone so are not keen on a guided private or group tour. Is there a bus or taxi service we could use ? Any suggestions would be gratefully received. PS we are not into hiking or biking I may add, a bit too old for it.

Re: transport to vineyards

by mccalpin

There is a suburban bus service from Siena that runs out to Vagligli, a "hamlet" that the winery website says is only a kilometer from the winery - see http://www.dievole.it/en/contacts/intro.aspx

It's route 34 - see the schedule at http://www.trainspa.it/2009/urbano_si.pdf (pages 99 and 100). Note that the bus doesn't make the run very often - wait, it doesn't even make the run at all before noon, except on Wednesday ("MER")...well, you could leave SIENA PIAZZA GRAMSCI at 13:10 7 days a week, and arrive in Vagliagli at 13:50, then walk to the winery, then no later than 19:15 (weekdays only! no buses coming back on Sunday!) be back in Vagliagli to take the last bus back to Siena (arr 19:55)...that would give you 3-4 hours on site.

Or you could take a taxi - I have no idea the cost - or you could rent a car and enjoy a drive in the beautiful countryside (and also spend all day at the winery or other places)...

Travel Tips for Siena

The Duomo --> The Front Facade

by KiNyA

This facade was built in two parts: The doors in 1284-97 and the rest in 1382-90.

I hope you can see the statues in the picture (they are *small*). Many of them on the facade have been replaced by copies; the originals are in the Museo dell'Opera del Duomo.

The Sun Symbol is bigger and you can also see it in the picture. It represents a symbol of the risen Christ.

Oldest synagogue in Tuscany

by newsphotogirl

We found this synagogue as we wandered through the streets of Siena. It was built in 1786 and said to hold rare jewish artifacts. It wasn't open but outside the main entrance was a plaque dedicated to the WWII deportees. Opposite to that is a plaque dedicated to those who perished in WWI.

Rent a car

by rexvaughan

I enjoy train travel and don't like to drive anywhere, particularly where I am not familiar with the roads, traffic signs and language. However, to get from Siena to Assisi by train was incredibly complex and long so we rented a car for the day.

A sidelight to this is that in 1961 we had planned a trip to Italy and were going to buy a Fiat to take back home. I don't know if we could have swung that deal, but the whole trip eventually fell through. In 1996 when we went to get the rental car, I told my wife, "I am over 30 years late, but here is your Fiat!" She thought it was funny - that is how she can stand to be married to me for so long.

Piazza Del Campo

by andy613

In the corner of the square. adjacent to the large pink and white building, is a narrow side street.
At the beginning of this street on the right is a little cafe/restaurant.
Buy your coffee or a snack and take it up to the first floor and onto the narrow ledge that serves as a terrace...
Then simply lap up the breath-taking view of one of the most amazing squares in the world, with the Duomo beyond...at a fraction of the 8 Euro they charged us for a pot of tea for two at the pavement cafe opposite!!!!
(Minimum charge lol.)

Cathedral of Siena

by Incubus30

Another place you have to visit once in Siena is the Cathedral.
The facade of this building is quite unique, it is stripped with pink, white & green marble. Quite remarkable for a cathedral.

Once you walk inside, you will be mesmerised by the various paintings depecting scenes from the Bible.
