Different Tuscany cities from San Gimignano

Hi,

A friens of mine is spending 7 days in Tuscany. He will sleep in San Gimignano the entire trip and will have a car. I've been then two years ago and know that going in and out of Sienna and Florence by car can be tricky. Do you suggest he should go by car or there are buses going there daily that would make his life easier ?

Thank you

Siena is not a problem as there are large parking stations just inside the walls. Florence is more difficult and I recommend he drive to a nearby station and take the train.

The transport hub for San G is nearby Poggibonsi.

Having a car in Tuscany is really a necessity but he does need to look out for the dreaded ZTLs.
