What do you mean by best way? Cheapest? Fastest? Most scenic? Most comfortable? Some combination of these factors? No one can advise you until you define your meaning of "best way."

It's about 320 kilometres. I would get a train from Siena to Florence and then from Florence to Venice. It takes about 4 hours.
Check www.trenitalia.com for schedules

My daughter is studying in Siena and would like to meet up with us in Venice. She will have 3 days so I needed to know the easiest and fastest way for her to travel.

The quickest would be with a car (it takes about 2 or 3 hours) but she'll have to leave the car parked at Piazzale ROma in Venice, and finding a place there is dramatic all the time. It takes less of a hassle by using the train, IMHO.

Take the bus to Florence from Siena then train. The standard advice is that the train between Florence and Siena is not that convenient.

The express bus takes 75 minutes.

It's probably about 3h between Florence and Venice on the Eurostar train, but Trenitalia will have the exact times.

To follow up on 111op, the bus from Siena stops in Florence across the street from the main train station. If she is studying in Siena, she will probably already know how to take the bus to Florence.
