Cultural Heart of Tuscany
Siena, a medieval Tuscan city, features numerous attractions, including a historic town center, alleyways, towers, and well-preserved buildings. One of the nation's most visited tourist attractions with museums and a medieval cityscape, it attracts nearly 200,000 foreign visitors each year. If you can, time your holiday to coincide with Palio, a horse race held twice a year. A proud, wealthy, and independent city-state during the Middle Ages, Siena, now a World Heritage site, produced a huge amount of significant medieval art, including painting, sculpture, and architecture. New buildings erected within the city walls must be designed to maintain Siena's medieval character and beauty. Even the strikingly modern structures blend in with the ancient ones. Make the most of your holiday in Siena by finding out about its attractions and choosing what to see using our Italy travel route builder site.

Where to stay in Siena

To enjoy panoramic views of Siena's historical old town, check into a luxury hotel in the city center. If you are looking to escape the activity of the main tourist areas, consider staying at a hostel or guesthouse just outside the central areas. Private multi-room villas in the residential neighborhoods offer landscaped outdoor space and secure parking. For something a little different and considerably less expensive, explore one of many B&Bs in the vineyards and olive groves of Siena's countryside.
