Siena: The city's rather forlorn-looking railroad
station is in an industrial area on the outskirts, at the bottom of a long hill. Allow half an hour to
reach the center on foot, catch a minibus if you aren't carrying much luggage,
or splurge on a taxi. Better yet, skip the train and come by bus. Buses from
Florence, Rome, and nearby towns arrive at the Piazza Antonio Gramschi, which is
literally just a few steps from Siena's pedestrian zone.
