Hellllp!! Need transportation to piombino
Sorry for the dramatic title but I am currently in montepulchiano with an urgent need to leave here in the morning on June 2nd for piombino. I can't seem to find a reasoanable solution as far as a train or bus is concerned
It doesn't seem to be a Long way but busses and trains seem to have very strange and inconvenient times. Wondering if you could help figure this out? I need to be in piombino by 2:00 @pm at the latest. Thanks so much for any assistance you may be able to provide. Chris

I'm sorry I didn't see this earlier -- it seems the only solution is to get a private driver!
Did you resolve like this or another way?

Elba safe and sound...after 10 hours
Montepulciano to Chiusi via Stefano at our agriturismo. The tabachi sold us tickets the day before for a 630 bus that wasn't running because of the national holiday. Chiusi to Florence by train. Florence to Piombino by train after many stops including a final bus ride to Piombino Maritima. Then of course the ferry to Elba. Highly recommend the Hotel del Golfo on Elba though. Anybody considering Montepulchiano to Piombino really needs to think it out better than we did. It's all an education!
