Museo Civico has a number of rooms that are beautifully decorated with wall and ceiling paintings and are a bit reminiscent of our visit to Pallazo Vecchio in Firenze. But this museum is a lot smaller, so we are outside again in a good hour.

We visited while in Siena for a day so it was a real whistle-stop tour through the city, but I was really keen to see the famous frescoes, the Allegory of Good and Bad Judgement. The best thing about our visit was that we were approached and informed that our visit would be free that day, and encouraged into the museum, and I was really impressed with the exhibits and the friendly staff, which made such a difference while the Covid-19 limitations were in force. It shows how welcoming a city can still be. I would love to go back one day and see this truly fascinating museum at a slower pace, but I appreciate how fortunate we were to often have the huge rooms entirely to ourselves.

I was in Tuscany and drove to Sienna about a year ago. Recently I received a traffic citation. I was following the signs to the parking garage and somehow drove into an unauthorized area. Clearly this was a tourist set up. Since I was "late" in paying the fines doubled. I had to pay $110. This ticket was not sent by traceable mail. It was in a nondescript plain envelope. I'm fortunate to have noticed the small Italian writing. You really can't get here without driving. Just be advised that you will probably get a ticket and bang your head against the wall trying to no avail to get the ticket reduced to first notice. As lovely as this place is, the scam ticket experience has spoiled this for me. I return anywhere that has scammed me.

Palazzo Pubblico is the main building located in Piazza del Campo (the main square in Siena), located in this charming medieval town, in the Region of Tuscany, in the center of Italy. In fact, this building is the town hall and you can enter in the inner courtyard, which is wonderful. From here you can see the Mangia Tower from below, which is one of the most important turistic places in the city. The best views of the building are from the other side of Piazza del Campo, a place I am sure you will visit firstly, if you go to Siena. Top place! Wonderful complex: main square, town hall and tower. (See also Centro Storico di Siena and Torre de Mangia)

An OK building to visit. The courtyard is interesting and has some nice statues. The real reason to visit is to climb the tower and see Siena.
