train or bus from Siena or Orvieto

We've been advisied by this board not to drive into Rome to drop car before we get there. We can drop auto in Siena or Orvieto.
which is best, and should we take train or bus.

Train rides from Siena to Orvieto take from 2 to 2 1/2 hours and call for a train change in Chiusi. If I had a car, though, and could drop it in Orvieto I would keep it. The nonstop drive to Orvieto would call for about 1:15 hours but one could stop in Montepulciano (Pienza, Chianciano Terme or else) enroute.

I haven't been able to connect to the FS site in the last couple of days ... Out here from Brazil I get a "unable to locate server" message back. Anyway, the address would be
http://orario.fs-on-line.com/fsbinx/fsqueryx?lang=en

For the time being, I'm using the German Rail site as a reference (slight schedule changes may apply for the summer season next year)

If you plug in Siena and Orvieto, you'll get the following departure (arrival) times:
6:21am (8:22am), 8:42am (11:59am), 10:12am (12:26pm), 12:20pm (2:26pm), 1:54pm (4:26pm), 3:58pm (6:26pm)

Oh ... to Rome from Orvieto you'll have to plug "Roma Termini" in! This will give you a train every hour or so, with the trip taking approximately one hour.
