How to use the bus and tram system in Siena

Aside from a tiny fleet of commuter buses that each make a single run early each morning, there are no buses in the city center of Siena.

The handiest buses are those that connect the train station (in the valley below) to the city edges (buses: 3, 4, 7, 8, 9, 10, 17, 77).

Siena bus tickets cost €1.50 ($2) if bought ahead of time at a newsstand or tabbachi, or €2.50 ($3) if bought on board.

Here are the Siena bus stops that ring the city center:

  • Stufa Secca, the closest to the center, about halfway up the N arm of town (buses: 7, 19)
  • At the N end of town (Terza di Camollia
    • Piazza del Sale (buses: 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10, 17, 19, 77)
    • La Lizza (buses: 1, 3, 9, 10)
    • Via Tozzi (buses: 1, 3, 6, 10, 18)
    • Porta Ovile (buses: 2, 5, 8)
  • At the SW end of town (Terza di Città)
    • Porta San Marco (bus: 3)
    • Porta Tufi (bus: 3)
