Tuscany (or Toscana, in Italian) is one of the most famous regions in the western world. You can hardly walk through a grocery story without seeing a theme influenced by this region. This region houses some of the most iconic symbols in all of Italy within its boarders. (I feel like I say that a lot, but it’s too true.) The capital city of the region is Florence (or Firenze), but most people, if given the opportunity, will venture further outside the city. Amongst the hill towns and castles there is probably one city more famous than them all. Siena. I went to Siena for the first time a few years back. It’s an amazing city, and one I recommend seeing. But, just like everything in Italy, getting there was not very self-explanatory.
This post calls out three things to help clear up any ambiguity in the process of traveling from Florence to Siena. None are earth shattering, but are all things I wish I knew before I set out on my journey.
