Sienna to Lucca

What would be the best way to do a daytrip from Florence to visit both Sienna and lucca by public transportation?

mike,
The best way would be two seperate days. Florence to Siena by bus is about75 minutes. Florence to Lucca is about 85 minutes. Siena to Lucca is about150 minutes.

Florence to Lucca is also quite easy by train - around 75-90 minutes. I would avoid using a train to Siena, as the station is some way from the town centre, and it is quite a steep climb.

I was never able to find an easy way from Lucca to Siena: The train meant two changes at Pisa and Empoli, and I was unable to find a bus.

I would agree with the previous poster, both are worth a day. You can always stop off at Pisa on the way to or from Lucca if all you wish to see is the tower (the S.Rossare station in Pisa is only 5 minutes from the Campo dei Miracoli)

You simply cannot visit Siena AND Lucca in the same day, unless you really arrive, take a glance and leave.

Hi M,

Check your map.

Siena (only one n) and Lucca ar different directions from Florence.

I suggest taking the SITA bus (stop is near the SMN station) to Siena and the train to Lucca (stops just outside the walls).

Thanks,
Any other ideas for Siena ( one N) to combine with another city that would be easier and faster to get too?
