We're doing a quick day trip up to Siena from Firenze. I have done this before but would love some feedback:
Last time we took the bus up & back and enjoyed the scenery. (beware: this is not a luxury ride) I remember having to be back to the bus stop by 3:00 (or something close) as it was the last bus back to Firenze. Is this still the case with bus service there? I am hoping there is a later time, but I have had trouble finding a current schedule online. I know there is always the train available but is not quite as handy.
We will be seeing as much as possible & wandering, so we'd like to find a convenient 'light lunch' spot not too far from the del campo. I would assume places immediately around there are mainly visited by tourists? (we ate lunch last time at a small place away from that area, & although it was good it was WAY too heavy for lunch + a bus ride) I realize I'm asking for something which goes against the Italian experience, but for this one day I'm afraid it will have to be this way to maximize our time. I see many small wine bars listed so maybe that is the answer? Or a bake shop which also serves a small lunch? Share your favorite spots. *A lunch with locals is always preferable. Grazie!
