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.
At any time of the day taxi service is available for vacationers. Taxi is called by phone. In Siena there is a single tariff for taxis; weekends’ and holidays’ tariff may be a little bit higher.
