Honestly, any city you explore in Italy will leave you wanting more & more. More views, more wine, second helpings (and probably thirds), and most importantly more time. Siena was no different. Siena is a small town about three hours north of Rome & one and a half hours south of Florence, the perfect middle between two beautiful Italian cities: Rome & Florence. If you are catching the train from Florence to Rome or Rome to Florence, I highly recommend stopping (for a day or two) in this charming medieval town. Check out the map below to a better layout of each location.
The town of Siena itself is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, located within the heart of Tuscany and most famous for its large square, II Campo & the small medieval alleyways that intertwine throughout the city.
Highlights: Cafe & Cappuccino & Espresso Siena Cathedral (Duomo di Siena) Il Campo – Main Square Tower (Torre del Mangia) Wander through & around Old Town
Depending on how much time you have in Siena (whether it be a day or more), you can either start your Siena adventure by slowly wandering through the city, soaking in the Italian atmosphere & breathing in the freshly made pasta or you can start your day with the city’s highlights making your way through the historic attractions. Siena is not a very large town and a majority of the attractions are located nearby each other
Siena Through the Lens 📸:
For my trip to Siena, it was more of a stopover, total relaxation, do nothing but wander around the cobblestone alleys with a bottle of wine in one hand & a slice of pizza in the other. We shut my phones off, put down the camera & map and just wandered through the city; soaking in the moments and enjoying being under the Tuscan sun. So in all, this is really just a collection of photos I snapped on my phone while aimlessly wandering.
Until Next Time Siena ✌🏽
