Siena - Italy

// HistorySiena, like other Tuscan hill towns, was first settled in the time of the Etruscans (c. 900 BC to 400 BC) when it was inhabited by a tribe called the Saina. The Etruscans were an advanced people who changed the face of central Italy through their use of irrigation to reclaim previously unfarmable land, and their custom of building their settlements in well-defended hill-forts. Then, at the time of the Emperor Augustus, a Roman town called Saena Julia was founded in the site. The first document mentioning dates from 70 AD. Siena may then have been under the control of invading Gaulis

Discussion on Siena

lisamstacy :

During my trip, I was planning on spending 2 night in Florence, taking the bus to Siena, spending the night, then hopping a train to Rome. I can't seem to find trains from Siena to Rome. Are there any, or should I only day trip to Siena and leave from Florence?

conley39 :
"Take the train from Siena to Chiusi or Florence and change to a train for Rome. There are a couple of trains per hour from Siena; the total travel time will be about 3 hours to 4 hours 40 min and cost of 12.90 to 46 euro 2nd class depending on the specific trains you take. The regional trains are slower and cheaper. The Eurostar trains are the fastest and most expensive. Usually, the schedule changes aren't huge, so you can get an idea of what's available by putting in a date before 8 Dec. You can check specific schedules and prices at the Italian train web site: However, the winter schedule goes into effect on the 9th of December and is not available on the website yet."

"Forget the train, it would take you forever and cost a fortune. Why not consider a low cost direct bus instead? It's as cheap as 5 Euros (one way) and you can buy your virtual ticket online from"

"its because the extra tranmission ( prop ) shaft runs under the car to the back.. because of where it has to go there ia a hump in the floor ..... that removes a seat at the front middle and rear... as you cannot fix seats in those positions..."
mle00100 :

I am looking for a school in Siena Italy that would give me American credits for a Italian course.

mtpizzo :
"Two of the best Italian Language schools are the universities in Perugia and Siena. Siena is more of a touristy town, while Perugia is more tranquil. You would have more fun in Siena, but learn more in Perugia. La scelta e'tua."
Zoila :
"I agree with the answer above...give him 10 points! I lived in Vicenza Italy for three years..... take any opportunity to live there! You'll love it!"

Siena's narrow streets meander into airy piazzas like the Campo, renowned both for its architectural grandezza and the Palio, a colorful horse race staged there each summer since the Middle Ages. To stroll along the city walls is to be tempted into the hills beyond, undulating off to the horizon. Siena whispers to our desire.
