Prices explained

At Loco2 we believe in price transparency. We use real data from Loco2 searches to estimate the cheapest fares you should be able to find for your journey.

The cheapest price is the lowest fare we've ever found for this journey. These prices can usually be found by searching when booking opens but they vary due to availability, which depends on factors like the day of the week or time of year.

More popular journeys include 30 day advance and 7 day advance prices. These are updated every two weeks using prices we've found by searching exactly 7 or 30 days from the most recent Thursday (we picked Thursday because this is when average prices are usually found).

30 day and 7 day prices fluctuate based on demand and availability at the time of search. For example, the 7-day price in summer is likely to be more expensive than the same journey in winter.

Prices are sourced in GBP and converted to other currencies using the daily market exchange rate.

We're always seeking to improve how price-checking works, and we welcome feedback on how we can make it better.

  1. Take the train from Florence to Siena to discover a quieter Tuscany. Siena still pulls the crowds, but not to the same extent as Florence. About 20 direct trains run from Florence to Siena each day. The first part of the route runs west down the Arno Valley to Empoli, where the train turns south and climbs slowly into the hills. As you head south, the hillsides close in and you have a sense of travelling back in time. There are glimpses of medieval hilltop villages and before long you are arriving in Siena.

    Bookings for the journey from Florence to Siena normally open two months in advance. However, the fare on this route is fixed and does not hike up closer to the date of travel. Therefore you won't find cheaper tickets by booking early.


    Florence S.M.N. to Siena

    All trains from Florence to Siena start their journey at Florence Santa Maria Novella and then call at Firenze Rifredi station six minutes later. The trains on this route are regional services designed mainly for local passengers. Most trains stop five times along the way, though some stop at up to nine stations. The two main towns on the line are Empoli and Poggibonsi. Alight at the latter if you are bound for San Gimignano.

    The journey from Florence to Siena takes 90 minutes. Although it’s perfectly possible to hike from the station in Siena up to the town centre, it’s not the nicest of walks. Instead, take one of the buses that leave from opposite the station for the 5-minute ride into the middle of town.

Child and youth passengers

The definition of "Child" and "Youth" varies by country and rail operator. This is why we ask for the age of young passengers.

Sometimes children below a certain age can travel without a seat for free. If you want to guarantee a seat for child passengers, enter '6' as the age of the child.
