    Ciao Faith,

    You can easily visit Pisa and Lucca from Florence by train - check timetables on www.trenitalia.com

    Siena is best reached by bus, you can check timetables here.

    Now, the hard part to explore without a car is Chianti because it is an entire region dedicated to wine and therefore not crossed by train tracks.
    You can take bus line 365 run by ACV from Florence to Greve and Panzano but Radda and Castellina are not reached with this same bus. In any case, bus 365 would be perfect for reaching Greve and doing wine tastings along the way - see this post about the wineries right before Greve.
    In the beginning stages of planning to come to Tuscany? Make sure to read Where to Stay in Tuscany WITH a car and Where to Stay in Tuscany WITHOUT a car for ideas on where to stay in Tuscany. Also read When to Visit Tuscany to decide when is the best times for your visit.
