There are trains from Spello to Florence, taking about 2.5 hours each way and costing €11.30. To get to Siena, you would need to take a train to Florence, then a bus.

If you rent a car, you could get to Siena in about 1h45.

Thanks Sydneynick

Looks like a car is the best way ti Siena.

Any idea of the cost of car hire for the day is?

The best place to rent one around Spello?

What's it like driving from Spello to Siena, very limited OS driving?

Thanks again

I think you would have to go into Foligno to rent a car, unless there is a small local company in Spello. The cost varies according to the kind of car you want and how far ahead you book. Check out www.autoeurope.com

Most of the journey from Spello to Siena is along a toll-free expressway.

If you are not from the EU, you need an International Drivers Permit.

It would help those who give advice if you could change your profile to say where you are from, instead of the unhelpful "overseas".

Hi Syneynick

Apologies for the OS!

I am from Australia, South Australia to be more specific.

So i have the problem of driving on the wrong side of the road!

Again thank you for your information.
