I will be staying in Siena and would like to make a day trip to Montepulciano on a Saturday, but I do not have a car. I am finding train routes from Siena to Montepulciano but it is my understanding that the train station is far from the town center.

Are there any recommendations for getting from the main Montepulciano train station to downtown (and back to the train station in the evening)? I would prefer to take a bus instead of a cab if possible. If a cab is the only option, does anyone know approximately what this should cost?

Thank you for the help!!
