Siena, Italy: 5 Things Not-to-be-missed in Siena!

Siena From The Top!

Siena From The Top!

One of Tuscany’s pride may be the irresistible Siena. Declared by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, the city center of Siena may not possess a history as rich as its nearest rival, Florence. However, there is a charm in its narrow winding lanes and unique fan-shaped open space of Piazza del Campo that makes Siena trip-worthy for an adventure in Tuscany! Most tourists flock to Siena during the summer for its biannual colorful horse race. Below is my list of “5 Things Not-To-Be-Missed in Siena”:

How to get there?
Located 250 kilometers away from Rome, the trip from Rome to Siena is best taken by bus. With a similar travelling time of 3 hours between both cities either by bus or train, the latter requires travelers to change at Chiusi and is also a less convenient choice as the train station is about 3 kilometers away from the historic center of Siena. Hence, there are frequent buses travelling from Roma Tiburtina that can take visitors to the center of Siena.

  1. I visited Siena when travelling with my parents as a young child. By accident we arrived on the day of Il Palio – the whole city was out to watch the horses racing in the Piazza del Campo!
