Visit Siena


Siena is built on the ridge of three hilltops and offers sensational views of the Tuscan countryside. Its medieval centre is has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Most of the unmissable sights in Siena are within easy reach of the main square, the shell-shaped Piazza del Campo. Chic fashion boutiques, gourmet restaurants and a host of architectural delights surround the Piazza.

Visit the Basilica di Santa Maria dei Servi and the Duomo Nuovo Cathedral, which also houses a historic collection of books in its Libreria Piccolomini.

Visitors flock to Siena in July and August to witness the exciting horse race, the Il Palio di Siena.

Siena is just an hour's drive south through the Chianti Wine Region from Florence, making it a perfect weekend excursion if you're exploring the region.
