Venue and Travel

TOSCA will be held in Siena (Italy) from the 28th to the 31st of October 2024, at the Santa Chiara LAB facility (Via Val di Montone 1, Siena).

How to reach Siena

Siena does not have an airport. The closest airports are the ones in Florence, Pisa, and Bologna.

From the Florence airport

Take the tramway to the Firenze Santa Maria Novella train station. From there you can go either by train or by bus.
    • By train: there is a direct train every hour. Tickets can be bought at the automatic machines in the station or online at the Trenitalia website.
    • By bus: the bus station is located 5 min away from Santa Maria Novella. There is a bus every hour. The bus number is the 131R (Siena Rapida). Bus tickets can be bought at the ticket office.

From the Pisa airport

Take the PisaMover transport to the train station (Pisa Centrale). From there, take the train to Siena. No direct train from Pisa to Siena exists, so you will need to change trains in Empoli. Tickets can be bought at the automatic machines in the station or online at the Trenitalia website.

From Bologna Airport 

Take the Marconi Express to the Bologna Centrale train station. From there, you can take a high-speed train (Frecciarossa or Italo) to Firenze Santa Maria Novella. From Firenze, you can then reach Siena either by bus or train (see above). NB: we advise you to buy the high-speed train tickets well in advance (2-3 weeks before).

  • From the train station: take the 0S7 to Piazza del Sale, then, take the 0S2 to Porta Pispini, from there, 10 minutes by walk.

  • From the bus station in Piazza Gramsci: the easiest way is to cross the city center by a ~20 min walk.
