Driving from Siena to Pisa - what to see on the way?

We are driving from Siena about 10:00am and to catch a flight out of Pisa about 19:00 . We wanted somewhere interesting to visit / have lunch on the way or with a small detour.

Any suggestions please and ideas on where to park.

Thanks

Volterra would be interesting. If you keep following the signs for "Centro", you will end up at a car park under the main square.

Yep, Volterra would be my suggestion too. Nick, can you get to that car park without entering the ZTL? I am planning to visit Volterra in a couple of months time for the first time with a car, so would like to know.

I like to park at the lot just overlooking the theater. It's a small lot but I've always been lucky with finding a spot. It's outside the wall but there is a gate right there and it's out of the ZTL.

The road to the car park was outside ZTL restrictions the last time I was there, but that was in 2006. Even by the standards of Italian local government, it would be illogical to have a large car park that people cannot legally reach.

We also always park in the same lot as TABarrett and I've never received a ticket for Volterra so it must be outside the ZTL. Not far to walk either to the main sights.

Hi,

Last July we used the underground car park that Nick suggested, it's not in the ZTL zone.
