Siena - Pienza - Montepulciano

Jump to last reply

I am trying to plan for a holiday next year and one of the things I thought to do was to travel from Siena to Pienza by public transport, walk to Montepulciano, and then bus back to Siena, making a long day of it.

Looking at the current timetables (http://www.tiemmespa.it) it seems that this is impossible using public transport. In fact, it seems that getting to Pienza is difficult prior to mid-afternoon as there are no morning buses and the first train of the day from Siena misses the connection at Buonconvento. And the last bus back leaves Montepulciano around 2:30pm. I'm looking at route 112.

Does anyone know whether this is achievable? From my reading, visiting Pienza and Montepulciano on separate days as day trips from Siena doesn't seem to be feasible either. What am I missing?

I'm sure the sensible thing to do would be to hire a car but I do not want to drive (and anyway couldn't walk in a one way direction).

Thank you for any suggestions.
