  • beautiful Basilica lined with the flags of the districts involved in the horse race is not to be missed

  • The basilica of San Francesco is one of the most important churches of Siena, situated in piazza San Francesco. Built in the 13th century in Romanesque style was enlarged over the next two centuries in the huge current Gothic structure. Inside are the ciborium with Holy Communion bread.

  • The Basilica di San Francesco is a bit different than what you are used to. It is a large, spacious Basilica, with beautiful but scarce stained-glass Windows. The Basilica is adorned with the flags of the contrade in the period of the palio, and that makes this Basilica still something more special. A (short) visit well worth it.

  • Really poor inside and outside is beautiful, as same as the views of siena at sides
  • Impressive architectural setting with a handful of wonderful artworks.
  • We stumbled across this church while going to another place. Stepped inside to take a look and glad we had!
  • Wonderful Church, a special place for prayers! Exceptional atmosphere adds the presence of Miracle of the Hosts!
  • Its a big old church. What more is there to say!

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.
