Drive or train from Siena to La Spezia?

Jump to last reply

We plan to rent a car during our 4 day stay in Tuscany. More than likely Siena since our lodging is 12 mi from Siena. From Siena we head to Cinque Terre. We purchsed a Trenitalia Pass Saver which allows us to travel 5 days in 2 months (paid for extra day).

Would it make more sense to pick-up and drop off in Siena then train to La Spezia? Or pick-up in Siena and drop off in La Spezia? What can we expect as far as drive time, tolls, etc.? Whether by car or train I suspect we should leave in the morning.
Our 13 day travel itinerary is as follows:
Rome to Sorrento (or Naples)
Sorrento to Venice (overnight sleeper)
Venice to Siena
Siena to Cinque Terre
Cinque Terre back to Rome.

Thank you in advance!
