Pisa airport to Siena via bus/coach?

by hyperion27

Hi all,

Just wondering whether it's possible to get a bus/coach from Pisa airport to Siena? I'm aware of a train which runs there (you have to change at Empoli, so I'm told) but I quite like the idea of going by bus/coach.

Has anyone done this?

Any comments or help would be appreciated guys!

This sort of information is often found at the airport's website...in this case http://www.pisa-airport.com/sat/cda/aree/index.php?idArea=5&idSection=5

Note that there are only 2 direct buses a day each way (follow the link)...

Travel Tips for Siena

What is the Palio?

by croisbeauty

For the Sienese people, Palio is not only the game it is much more then this, a way of living. The origins of the Siena Palio, however, have never been satisfactorily explained. The only sure thing is that festival already existed well before 1310, the year when the official institution of the Palio was consecrated, to be competed for on the 16th August in honour of the Assumption into Heaven.
In 1656 the institution of a second Palio was officially recognized, the "Palio of the Districts", to be run on the second July in honour of the Madonna di Provenzano.

Head to Lucca

by Venturingnow

I was never lucky enough to make it to either Lucca or San Gimignamo, but I met quite a few locals who told me to go over and see both of those towns. Lucca is a little bit NW of Florence while San Gimignamo is south of Siena and you can get there by bus.

Small and slightly out of the way trattoria

by jessicadf about Trattoria La Torre

Just off the main square in Siena, but tucked away so not obvious unless you're looking for it, is Trattoria La Torre. Family owned and run, the nephew of the owner has recently agreed to keep the restaurant alive when the uncle decides to retire after over 40 years. This is a tiny restaurant with no printed menus. The owner will tell you what's on the menu, in Italian. If you reply in English, he will definitely understand you, but he will only speak Italian.

The service is pronto pronto, the portions huge and delicious. The pischi pasta is delicious. The roasted chicken was a little dry (overcooked). The oven roasted potatoes were delicious.

The Duomo of Santa Maria dell'Assunta

by Umea6

... rests on a wide platform on the square. Eleven stairs (originally 12 to represent the Apostles) lead up to the platform. Surprisinglly the cathedral isn't found on the main square in Siena which is Piazza del Campo, but seperatlly on Piazza del Duomo.
The western facade (completed between 1284-1310) was allegedlly designed by Giovanni Pisano. Much of the original sculptural decoration by Giovanni Pisano has been removed to the Duomo Museum for preservation.

good and bad government

by adinda

The palazzo pubblico City Hall) is art in itself, a great example of gothic architecture. It was built at the end of the 11th century. Nowadays the building houses the Museo Civico (City Museum). One of the most important rooms is the Mappamondo, named after the map of territories belonging to the republic of Siena. It was painted on the walls by Ambrogio Lorenzetti. Though these have been lost, frescoes by him are still to be found in the Pace room. There you'll find the Allegory of Good Government and an Allegory of Bad government, which both tell a great deal about how the city was managed in the Middle Ages.
