  • The basilica is located on a hill. It's a bit of a mixed bag of styles because its construction lasted centuries and some parts are unfinished. Thus there are Gothic chapels, Renaissance nave, incomplete façade of the fifteenth century. Within several operas. To see why is quite particular.

  • Enjoy the walk to the southernmost part of the city to enjoy this great basilica and its astonishing views.

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.
