Siena At a Glance:

  • Get your bearings by beginning your visit at the very nerve center of Siena, the Piazza del Campo, the unique and expansive shell-shaped public square. Here is where visitors and local Sienese come to cool their heels near the public fountain or to just gaze at the ancient medieval and Renaissance architecture that surrounds them.
  • Around the piazza's perimeter is where the world famous Palio horse race takes place twice yearly, in summer.
  • It's only a short distance by foot to the rest of Siena's other main attractions including the Palazzo Pubblico where Siena's City Hall has stood for almost eight centuries and today houses famous frescoes and artwork. While here, also don't miss the trip up to the top of the Torre di Mangia (Mangia Tower) for stunning views of Siena and the surrounding countryside
  • Of course, no visit to Siena would be complete without a pilgrimage to the city's wild and tempestuous Gothic Duomo, right next door to the city's main museum, the Opera del Duomo.
  • Airports : Most air trips into Siena touch down in either Florence Airport or Pisa International Airport with bus service to Siena.

  • Train station: Siena's Stazione Centrale connects to Florence, Rome and other nearby locales, but due to its location outside of town, bus service from major cities is highly recommended.

  • Bus: As a major Tuscany transportation hub, Siena has excellent local and regional bus service with tickets purchased at tobacco shops throughout town. Siena bus map & schedules.

  • Taxi : Taxi service is available at taxi stands at major squares and tourist attractions.
