Sienna to Rome - Looking for private driver

I need to travel from Sienna to Rome in October and don't want to take a bus. I am looking for a private driver to do the trip. Any recommendations?

Minimum estimate is 2.5 hours (and that is optimistic) driving time, meaning the driver will be doing a minimum of 5 hours driving time as they have to do a round trip - this will cost you hundreds of euros.

You can check with www.romecabs.com - highly regarded in Rome - to get an estimate. Not sure they go so far out of Rome but they might.

Others I am sure will have suggestions.

Yep... that trip would be about 700 euros or about $1,000 Can.

The train from Rome to Siena is about 20 euros.

I was told that a driver would be about 250 EUR. I seem to be misinformed!

Did you check the company I gave you in the first post? 700 euros sounds high to me - I paid 380 euros for a transfer from Naples to Rome a few years ago and that takes similar time; I've seen posts that saying is about 400 euros now but you should definitely check first - it is unlikely you can get it for just 200 - what car service is going to drive for 5 plus hours, with gas at $9/gallon, other expenses plus salary? That would be a miracle.

If you find that price - do let us know!

Luca Garrapa, who gets almost unanimous glowing reviews will transfer 1 to 4 people from Siena to Rome for 345 Euros.

Maybe 250 euros one way. The driver would be expect to be paid for the return trip as well. So, 500.....

That's a good price! But once again, the train is 20 euros.

Or rent a car and drive yourself....you will likely need a car if you want to explore Tuscany outside of Siena.

Try Sergio Ceccherini - he does sightseeing on the way, as time allows. It would probably cost you about 450 euros.

or try Manuele from Just in Tuscany , he's usually pretty reasonable and has good reviews on tripadvisor.
