How to reach Siena

Siena is located in the heart of Tuscany amid a wide hilly landscape. Built on three steep hills and encircled by ancient walls, the medieval city of Siena welcomes its visitors with a Latin motto at the Porta Camollia entrance to the centre "Cor Magis Tibi Saena Pandit" (Siena opens its heart to you wider than this gate).

You will find below some information on how to reach Siena using various kind of transport.
