Train Schedules

Bus Schedules

  • TRA-IN is the main Siena bus company; site in Italian. Go to EXTRAURBANO and plug in the destination cities (URBANO means buses within the city.) Shortly this site will be in English.
  • SENA runs buses to Rome, Assisi, Bologna and Perugia that can be faster than the train.
  • Another site with Florence- Siena bus schedule information, in Italian.
  • New site trying to combine all the above and not yet quite working



Note - there are ways to get compensation for bumped flights and similar trouble, nowadays more frequent than ever. Google IATA, read the fine print on your travel insurance. Buy travel insurance. We hear good things about

Ferry Schedules

Italian Terms

Note departure and arrival times are always shown using the 24 hour clock, instead of 'am' and 'pm'.

Codes often used in Italian schedules:

  •  "giorn"  =  daily (giornaliero), Mon-Sun
  •  "fer"  =  workdays (feriali), Mon-Sat
  •  "-sab"  =  not Saturday (Sabato), so Mon-Fri
  • "sab"  =  Saturday only (sabato)
  •  "fest"  =  holidays (festivi), so Sundays and holidays

Thus, for example, if you want to catch a bus on a Sunday, look on the schedule for those buses marked "giorn" or "fest". There will be fewer of these than 'weekday' buses, and perhaps no faster service available.
