Bianco e Nero di Sonia Staccioli , Siena

5.0
#3 of 13 in Shopping in Siena
Stop off at Bianco e Nero di Sonia Staccioli and watch two artisans--a father and his daughter--at work making exceptional pieces of ceramic dishes, sculptures, and painted tiles. Whether you're looking for a souvenir to take home or a gift for someone special, you can browse through a variety of colorful pitchers, bowls, hand-painted plates, and vases. While watching the father paint floral motives, Tuscan landscapes, and symbols of the city, the daughter will be happy to explain the artistic process. Notice the witty “Made in China” sign--with China crossed out and Siena written beneath--suggesting that each piece in the shop is completely local. Our Siena sightseeing app makes visiting Bianco e Nero di Sonia Staccioli and other Siena attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • For a tourist careful, you want a real quality product I report perhaps one of the last art workshops of a Sienese family that is rooted in the past. You will find beautiful ceramics produced by the skilled hands that have been handed down for years white and black colors of Siena.

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.
