single traveller to Siena

I am planning to stay in Siena for about 12 days. I will be traveling alone, and am a healthy, under 60 year old woman who does not mind walking. I was in Siena for just a day last year, and loved it. I would appreciate any suggestions. Thank you. wabby

Lucky you, Wabby. I stayed in Palazzo Ravizza for one night and just loved it. Twelve days there would be heaven (if it fits your budget--I'm sure there are nice places that are cheaper).

wabby,

What are you looking for? Places to stay? Things to do? Places to eat? Need a little more information on your requirements.

I suggest you consider a stay at the Villa Scacciapensieri, just a few minutes outside of town, with a city bus stop right outside the hote's driveway (or a short taxi ride away). It's a more relaxed setting than staying in the city would be. It's gotten great reviews recently on TA (including mine).

One tip, though - when dining in town, let your restaurant call a taxi for you. Otherwise they are hard to find.

I'd better clarify - you need to call for a taxi at night in Siena. In the daytime, we had no trouble at all finding one.

Hi wabby,

I too would like to know your preferences. I have spent much time inSiena and yes you have a lot of options. City vs countryside. I enjoy the city because there is so much to do, museums, duomo, shopping and people watching in the Campo. also depends on what time of year you are going. I have a friend there who owns a travel agency and smal hotel. they can arrange tours and stays in or out side of the city. You could stay in a small aprtment inthe city. Contact the Siena travel agency they too might have listings of aprtments or stays in ahome with a family..like i said lots of options...

Hi,

Same age, I do travel by myself in Italy every year and I had no problem so far. Of course every year when I leave I discover is more to see so again ready for the next year 'again'. Siena is wonderful city and from Siena is many other places to travel for a day. See what is around Siena, like Cortono, Perugia, Assisi just to name few. No matter where the train or bus will take you Toscana is a beautiful place to be. Good luck n/l
