Important remarks:

Chianciano Terme has a small train station. Usually, the taxi service is continuously available from 8:00 to 21:30. However, June is a busy time and there might be many guests arriving with the same train. It is therefore possible that you don’t find a taxi immediately, if you don’t reserve it in advance. Especially, after 21:30 only one taxi will be in service and it might not be available when you arrive. It is therefore highly recommended that, in any case, you book the taxi in advance.

For any problem, you can always call the number provided above.
