Travelers who plan to rent a car have to consider that there is a shortage of free parking spaces in the city. Some of the best car parks are located near Fortezza Medicea and next to the city stadium.
It is comfortable to explore city on foot, as all important sights are located close to each other. Siena is located in a hilly area, so hikers should be sure to take comfortable shoes with them.
Tourists having enough of time should definitely make a trip to one of the nearby cities. Rome and Florence can be easily reached by train or bus, the last departs from the square in front of the train station.
The most favorable time for a trip to Siena is from May to September; it is extremely warm and sunny in this period of time. Holiday-makers should take into account that quite a lot of tourists visit the city in summer, so it is recommended to book a hotel room in advance.
The city has a good public transport system. Small Pollicino buses cruise the streets from early morning until late at night. It’s better to buy tickets in advance in kiosks available at all public transport stops; ticket cost is about 0.9 euro. Also, tickets can be purchased from a driver, but in this case the cost will be higher.
