You can also find these destinations listed on this website under the item and selecting > guided tours > Florence. However, it is possible to enjoy individual excursions, with a minimum of organization and information regarding public transport.

Siena can be easily reached from Florence thanks to the frequent Busitalia buses, whose station is in via Santa Caterina da Siena. The trip takes an hour and 15 minutes and the ticket for the fast route costs € 8.40 (outward journeys, the same cost applies to return ones).

With regard to Pisa, instead, the easiest way is to catch one of the several trains that reach the city of the Leaning Tower in an hour. The ticket costs € 8.60. Since these are regional trains, it is important to stamp the ticket on the platforms before boarding the train.

The seaside: many tourists ask for information about the Cinque Terre (Literally: Five Lands, five fishing villages on the Italian Riviera, region Liguria), which are not in Tuscany! In order to reach them, it is necessary to arrive at La Spezia by train and, from there, another railway line passes from “Land” to “Land”.

As regards the Tuscan coast, the nearest seaside from Florence is Viareggio and the Versilia, which can be equally be reached by train in 90 minutes. The ticket costs € 9.90.
