    Default Driving from Rome airport to Siena


    Im planning to pick up a car and drive directly from Rome airport around 10am sunday in September to Siena. What is the route that I should take as this is the first time im in Italy? Any recommended stopovers for breaks and lunch?

    Ciao wpy,

    You can do the ring road around Rome and head up on the A1.

    I recommend a stop in Orvieto to visit and for an early lunch.
    Then at Chiusi Scalo, leave the A1 and head toward Montepulciano.
    I'd recommend a stop in Pienza but most of all, enjoy the scenic drive through the Val d'Orcia.

    If you have a chance to come back for a day trip in the area once you're in Siena, I'd recommend visiting Montalcino and Montepulciano, too. The whole area is beautiful and just pleasure to spend time in and enjoy - stupendous views and food and wine!
