Lucca to Siena transportation?

We are traveling from Cinque Terra to Siena on a Sunday in March and I'm looking for a town for us to stop in along the way. (We will do Pisa on the way up.) Would it be reasonable -- without a car -- to train it from La Spezia to Lucca and then bus or train from Lucca to Siena?

I just posted a similar query on the Tuscany forum to see if Volterra or SanG is possible. Bus service is hard to figure out.

thank you!

GHS900,

La Spezia to Lucca is easy about an hour and a half. Lucca to Siena is about three hours or more by train. I don't know of any direct buses.

I tried to get from Lucca to Siena last Sept, there are no buses so your only option is by public transport is train which involves a change at Empoli and as the previous post says ends up taking nearly 3 hours. I decided hiring a car was the best way.
