TOURIST BUS RESERVATIONS
ON LINE RESERVATION SERVICE REACTIVATION
Starting on 1st April 2022, the bus ZTL (Limited Traffic Zone) access permit charge will be restored.
To book, follow the simple on-line guide available on our website.
We remind you that, in order to proceed with the booking, you have to register on-line on our website “Reserved Area” and click on: https://sismic.comune.siena.it/bus/registration
Then click on the following link to complete your booking: https://sismic.comune.siena.it/login?codicePermesso=bus
In the case of companies, Tourist Bus ZTL access permits and Fagiolone Parking reservations can be made until the day prior to the Bus arrival in Siena. Companies have to register on-line on our website Reserved Area and then proceed with the booking to obtain a ZTL Bus permit. The booking is confirmed only upon the credit card payment of the rate applied.
To book, it is necessary to provide the following informations: the bus licence plate number, the bus loading zone needed both for the arrival and departure, date and time of the arrival, date and time of the departure and all the details necessary to obtain the fiscal document requested.
An important change has been made to our booking process: once the ZTL permit reservation is completed and its payment (credit card only) has been made, it is necessary to download and indipendently print the permit that has to be displayed on the bus dashboard. Therefore, it is no longer necessary to to go through “Il Fagiolone” Check Point upon arrival.
The bus can go straight to the passenger unloading area only at the time shown on the reservation and on the permit displayed, without having to go through “Il Fagiolone” Check Point, where the Bus will park later.
To load the passengers, the Bus will have to go to the loading zone indicated on the Permit displayed on the Bus dashboard.
Rates applied are lower for those who book on line: the cost is 130,00 Euros during high season and 105,00 Euros during low season. For the following days, check out the Tourist Bus Rate section on our website.
In the event of arriving without reservation, the ZTL access permit can be made at “Il Fagiolone” Check Point upon the payment of the full rate applied without reservation. Once the permit is retired, it has to be displayed on the bus windshield in a clearly visible way.
BUS PERMIT DISCOUNTS FOR GROUPS STAYING IN ACCOMODATION FACILITIES IN THE CITY OF SIENA
Discounts on ZTL Tourist Bus access permits are available for groups staying in accomodation facilities in the city of SIENA. Reservations have to be made directly by the accomodation booking staff.
In order to obtain the discount, it is necessary to ask the accomodation staff to make the reservation on behalf of the group. The accomodation contact person will use its credentials to log-in, tell wheter the reservation is about a P type Permit or a H type Permit (as shown below) and insert the Bus details needed to complete the booking.
With P type permits Buses can park at Il Fagiolone Parking Area and transit through Siena Limited Traffic Zone for the whole duration of the stay of the Bus in the city of Siena. Rates are: € 60,00 for the whole stay for groups that book using the on-line payment method, Euros 75,00 for groups who pay directly at Il Fagiolone Check Point. The rates indicated are applied during high season. In low season, ZTL Bus access is free of charge.
H type permits are free of charge only for the purpose of loading and unloading of passengers and their baggage. Transiting through Siena Limited Traffic Zone to take the group to Siena historic center or to take the group on day trips outside Siena is not allowed. It is possible to request a H type permit even when parking inside the accomodation facility parking areas. The bus can transit through the Limited Traffic Zone only on the arrival and departure days. With a H type permit, the bus is not allowed to park at “Il Fagiolone Parking Area”. Furthermore, the bus cannot take the group to Siena historic city center or outside Siena on day trips.
Our on-line software shows which loading and unloading zone is the closest to the accomodation and, if available, where the hotel parking area is.
The contact person of the accomodation has to declare, under his own responsability, the group name and the number of people staying in his facility, in order to allow checking of city tax payments. Once confirmed the data given, the contact person of the accomodation has to finalize the reservation process to receive, through e-mail, the permit to forward to the bus company/travel agency to be printed and displayed on the Bus dashboard. The e-mail received also contains a link to the on-line payment of the reservation.

These changes include loading and unloading area, time of arrival and time of departure, bus licence plate number, number of partecipants.
The permit has to be printed and displayed on the bus dashboard in a clearly visible way in order to allow checks from the authorized personnel and avoid fines.
