The classic beauty of Tuscany
Sienna city guide
Siena, let the charm work
Horses thunder around the shell-shaped Piazza del Campo in Sienna’s summertime medieval Palio horse race. Stroll narrow, cobblestone alleyways past the zebra-striped Romanesque cathedral. Or go wine tasting in the Tuscan hills and pick up distinctive bulb-shaped bottles of velvety Italian Chianti.
On the Piazza del Campo, we also advise you to visit the most beautiful palace of the town: the "Plazzo Pubblico" from the 14th century, which houses the "Museo Civico" where you can learn more about the old Government of Sienna.
You can also discover "Il Duomo di Sienna", the charming gothic cathedral built with white and black marble, and even climb up to its roofs. Don’t miss the opportunity to admire the highest medieval tower of Sienna, the "Torre del Mangia" and its 44 meters in height.
And let yourself be tempted by the typical recipe of Sienna: the "panforte", a cake made with dried fruits, spices and almonds.
Trains are convenient way to reach any town and city in Europe. All main towns have a railway station, while major cities have more than two railway stations. Nearly all railway stations are located in the city centre. Check our map to locate railway station(s) in Sienna.
