Built on three verdant hills in the middle of the Via Francigena (pilgrimage road), Siena is one of Tuscany’s crown jewels. Siena is a beautiful city, car-free, and fun to explore.
Siena claims several key historical sights, including an outstanding Gothic Duomo and another important church, San Domenico, which claims the skull of St. Catherine. It also has one of the most beautiful squares in Italy, il Campo, where the famous Palio horse race is held twice a year. Siena also claims one of the oldest universities in Europe, which contributes to the rich cultural scene here, with all sorts of concerts, shows, art exhibitions and sporting activities throughout the year.

Eleven different streets feed into Piazza del Campo, a huge fan-shaped plaza lined with restaurants, cafes and shops.

Local delicacies include Panforte, a cake with dried fruits and sugar; Ricciarelli, classic Sienese almond paste cookies. Siena’s has many great restaurants suitable for a nice lunch. A plate of pasta, pici, is typical of the area. This pasta prepared simply with garlic and olive oil or with wild mushrooms is delicious.
