  • There has been a creation of a candle, entering a little Siena a few steps from piazza del campo, where a girl was explaining to a Lord how did you create that candle, the whole process, we were delighted by the skill of the woman, of art that he had in his hands, we have seen the birth of a drawing, a work in twenty minutes. A nice experience to see this girl making crafts with much love. I bought that candle, and every time I see it I think of where it is nice to have passion for what you do. Love for art

  • Very nice shop. Friendly and helpfull staff. Staff members speak many languages and are very happy to help and advise you. Hand made and very unique candles for a good price. The candles are all handcrafted in the shop. This crafting process can be seen aswell and they are happy to explain how they craft their candles. Worth visiting any day; even if you don't plan on buying candles the crafting process is very interesting to watch.

  • Real local crafts done really by hand on site. Excellent quality recommended the purchase.

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.
