Travelling between Florence and Siena is easy enough, even on May 1st, an important Italian public holiday. Catching a bus was recommended in guidebooks and on websites, however our hotel concierge explained that getting a train was the most efficient away of reaching Siena and tickets were cheap. We used the ticket machines in the station thinking it would be quicker than queuing but only if you pick the right queue, some machines only take credit cards and some take both cash and plastic. Conversion charges are so high that we avoided using our visa card for small purchases. We finally got our tickets and jumped on the first train leaving for Siena, excited about venturing into the famous Tuscan countryside that we had only ever seen in postcards or on travel shows.
