Siena to Rome Connection

From Rome, our plan is to go to Florence by train, staying for 1 night, then go to Siena by bus, staying for 2 nights and then back to Rome. What is the best way to go from Siena to Rome? It seems that the train will take about 4 hours and has a connection in Florence or Chiusi. I understand that the bus takes 3 hours from Siena back to Rome. Any suggestions which is better?

Depending on the connections you make, the train can take 3 to 4 hours. You can see schedules here:


The train station in Siena is a bit out of town, so you would have to get there by city bus or taxi. The train arrives in Rome at Termini station.

The bus leaves from central Siena, and arrives at Rome's Tiburtina bus station, which is near Tiburtina train station. There is also a metro stop at Tiburtina.

You can see the bus schedules (in Italian) here:


The schedules to Rome are at the bottom under Toscano --> Lazio. First, under "Partenze", it lists the pickup points in the Siena vicinity, then under "Arrivi" it lists the arrival p0ints in Rome.

We took the train from Siena to Rome. We had good connections, and it took about 3 hours. We much preferred that to the bus we had taken as a day trip(without luggage) from Siena to San Gigignamo - the train was much more comfortable.

Thanks for your replies, I found a 3 hour train trip with a stop in Chiusi. Since we're traveling with my 8 year old son, comfort is a big deal so we're opting for the comfort factor. Thanks again!
