train travel from Venice to Bologna to Siena

Hi Everyone,

Next June, I wil be traveling from Venice to Bologna and then on to Siena. Any suggestions about the best combination of trains/buses would be greatly appreciated. Also, if you could recommend the best way to visit Florence for the day from Siena- bus vs. train, that would be great, too! I am guessing that bus might be best for a drop off within Florence itself. Thanks for any help you can provide.

Lynn

Venice to Bologna- train

Bologna to Siena- the direct bus is faster, cheaper and very comfortable.

Siena to Florence- bus (SITA bus leaves Siena from the city center. The Siena train station is down the hill from the city center so it is not as convenient)

Yes, the bus between Siena and Florence is best.

The bus stop IN Florence is right next door to the rail station so BOTH forms of transport leave from the Florence "city center."
