If you are in Siena and you’re planning to stay more than a day, we definitively suggest you to rent a car to fully enjoy your stay in Tuscany.
Visiting the countryside of Siena is not easy since there are not many busses and they fail to reach every locations. With a car it will be so much easier to explore Tuscany, with the possibility to reach and visit more placese and cities in a day.
Close to Borgo Grondaie and to the train station you will find a moltitute of car rental. You can reach them by taxi, since they are a little bit far for walking!
Here are the main:
- Hertz-Viale Sardegna, 14
- Avis-Via Simone Martini, 26
- Europacar-Viale Europa, 23
Our tip is to ask for a GPS, very useful to drive around Siena without any problems. Keep in mind that you may need to ask the employee of the car rental to set the GPS in your language. Also ask for the owner’s manual for all possible contingencies. Always read the type of fuel that the car needs, whether it’s diesel or green petrol. For those who have children with them, ask for kid seat. In Italy is compulsory!
Do not forget that for renting a car in Italy you have to hold:
- Driving Licence
- Personal I.D. / passport
- Credit Card
All the Non-European licence must be accompanied by an International Licence.
If you want to drive around Siena, be aware of the traffic limitation around the city. Siena is closed by a Restricted Traffic Zone(ZTL). However, the centre of the city is not hard to reach by every part of Siena. You can find free parking close to the Fortezza (go straight on the entrance of the parking and then left). Other free parking are: Viale Vittorio Veneto and San Prospero. Other parking are located around in all the city, the cost is 2 euros per hour and they are open all day.
Renting a car will allow you to discover Siena with your own rythm. In our blog we have written many articles around the most beautiful area to visit near Siena like San Gimignano, Monteriggioni or a trip in the Val d’Orcia through the Crete. Otherwise you can discover the Chianti Hills driving in a beautiful landscape with amazing view (maybe taking some pictures). Of course you can organize a wine taste of the famous and celebrated Chianti wine right were it’s produced.
