Rome/Siena/San Gimignano/Florence in one day?

Hi

Going to be leaving from rome on our way to Florence and was wondering if it is possible to make a stop in Siena and San Gimignano in one day. The other option would be to go from rome to siena to florence in one day and saving San Gimignano for a day trip from Florence....any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks

I would go directly from Rome to Florence and do Siena and San G in a day rip from Florence - easy by car to get an overview of both. And that way you're not hauling your luggage all over hell and gone.

Siena is three hours from Rome by bus so it would be better to train to Florence (1hr40min) and do day trips to San G and Siena. The express bus from Florence to Siena is just a little over an hour and runs often. San G bus is on page 1 and Siena on page 2.

This sort of reminds me of that Goddard movie where they 4 kids see how fast they can race through the Louvre.

My advice is to get a very nice picture of book Firenze, Siena and San Gimignano and stay home and look at the pictures. You'll see more that way.
