Chiusi  is a city in the Val di Chiana region of Tuscany, Italy. It was one of the twelve cities of the Etruscan League. In 391 BC it was besieged by the Gauls which led to its decline as an Etruscan center. It later became a Roman province and in 89 BC its people were given Roman citizenship. In the Middle Ages the city declined, in part because of its support for Siena in its battles with Florence. Today, however, it is a flourishing town, with excellent communications.
 Get in
 By road
Chiusi is easily reachable by road. From Rome it is just over half-way to Florence on the A1 Autostrada.
 By train
There are regular trains from Rome and Florence. The Station name is Chiusi C.T. (short for Chiusi - Chianciano Terme).
The hilltop portion of Chiusi is 2 km from the station and, since some of the road has no sidewalks, you should take either a bus or taxi if you need to get there.
 By bus
If you are going to or coming from another Tuscan town, see Tuscany#Get_around for more info on bus service.
Local and interurban buses all seem to stop by the railway station (Chiusi C.T.). You can buy bus tickets at the newsstand within the railway station. The bus stops are to the left of the station doors facing town. The orange local buses stop near those doors while the blue interurban buses are further to to left. Keep in mind that a blue interurban bus might serve your local stop as well as an orange local bus. The bus stops serve both directions of travel, so check the destination sign or confirm with the driver.
The website for Siena Mobilità (http://sienamobilita.it/orari.html) has bus schedules (orari) for local routes in Chiusi. Click the tab Servizio urbano Chiusi. Also check the tab Servizio extraurbano as there are several interurban routes that also serve Chiusi.

The hilltop portion of Chiusi (around Via Porsenna) is a quaint but somewhat sleepy town. Stores seem to have short opening hours. On Wednesdays, all fruit, grocery and delicatessen shops seem to be closed for the entire day.
