DayTripQuip™ – Beautiful And Historic Siena From Florence By Train Or Bus



Piazza del Campo

DayTripQuip™: Take the train (Regionale: 1 hour 28 minutes – €8.80/person each way) from Santa Maria Novella Station to Siena. Trains leave throughout the day from S.M. Novella at 10 minutes after the hour. Another option is the bus (Corse Rapido: 1 hour 15 minutes – bus station is just south of the train station – bus schedules below – €7.60/person each way) which is a little faster than the train, cheaper, and leaves you closer to the center of Siena. The Siena train station is a little over a mile and a 25 minute walk to the historical center of Siena where you will want to go. The Siena bus station is very close to the center (centro storico) and its fabulous piazza, ancient churches, beautiful cathedral, and historic buildings. Siena has restaurants, cafes, bars, and shopping galore if you would like a break from the frenzy of Florence for a few hours.

Scavi di Velia: A Must See If Visiting Salerno, Ascea, And Surrounds


Scavi di Velia
Ancient Ruins, Sights & Landmarks

Well preserved and maintained, these ancient ruins date back to the 4th Century BC. Originally a Greek colony, the Romans renamed the city 2000 years ago, adding to and expanding the city. The tower, church, and other buildings at the top of the settlement date back to medieval times.

There are many Roman ruins, including a bath, villas, houses, and an acropolis, but the highlight is Porta Rossa (Pink Gate), once an entrance to the city and well worth the climb. There is a well-preserved fresco in the large villa on the path back to the reception center as well as a nice mosaic floor in the baths located in the lower part of the site.

Entry is just €3 with a reduced price of €1.50 for students, teachers, and seniors. They are open daily  from 9am to one hour before sunset except for December 25th and January 1st when they are closed.

An outstanding value at twice the price …
