public transportation to Siena, Pienza
My mother and I am planing to go to Siena and Pienza on 31st Dec 2014.
Then, Im afraid whether we can get to Pienza on 31st Dec by bus.
We don't have car, so we cannot go there if it's closed...
My question is
Can we get to Pienza by bus? and
How can we get there by public transportation or taxi if the bus was closed??

Buses should run even on the 31st of December but will likely be limited on January 1st - you can check the timetables on here: http://www.busfox.com/timetable/
Just enter Siena and Pienza. I see one at 7:14am, others at 1:13pm, 4:13pm, 3:18pm, 4:40pm and last at 5:48pm.
Are you planning on staying in Pienza or heading back the same day?
Last bus of the day is at 5:59pm from Pienza.
If you're looking into doing a day tour, I would actually suggest doing a tour such as this one.
It would allow you to see quite a bit more as it includes lunch and Montepulciano, without the worry of checking hours for buses and in the company of a knowledgeable guide that would make the experience special.
