This city is a must see if you are in the area. It is an old walled city with beautiful paths weaving all through the historic city. There are many places to eat, great shops that you can buy local crafts and touristy crafts. The food is delicious, the gelato is a must. Just walking around the city streets is worth it. It's full of history and culture. I love that it hasn't been swallowed by tourism. The city center is a must see and a great starting point for exploring the rest of the city. Look online ahead of time for parking lots because you can't drive into the city for them without challenges. If you want free parking get there early and you have to park outside of the walls and walk a ways if the parking on the sides of the street are full.

We got to Siena in a very hot day, but the Centro Storico has so many narrow shady streets that we were shielded from the sizzling sun during most of our walk, which was a big plus! Eventually every visitor ends up at the Piazza del Campo but just walking around in the side streets away from the crowd is a great way to work up an appetite to then sit down at one of they many options for lunch or dinner in Siena.

Visting Siena is a must when in Tuscany! The old city with it's narrow, and somewhere very steep, cobblestone streets can be a challenge for disabled, but it is very much worth a visit. While strolling along, try to look for the 17 contrada's and their unique seals, used in the bi-annual Palio-race around Piazzia del Campo (2 July and 16 Aug each year) Even after several visits to Siena, you can discover small passageways and streets. Also, admire the impressive churches and towers, cross the Piazza del Campo or find breathtaking views of the landscape from citiwalls or atop the tower in Torre del Mangia. As a Dane, it is a fun fact to know this tower/city hall was the inspiration for the city hall in Copenhagen (my country's capital). Treat yourself to some of the best ice cream in all of Italy while resting your feet on the pavement of del Campo - laid back in 1347!!

Less people more atmosphere, that is Siena compared to nearby Florence. Even during the Palio it was delightful to wander these streets and soak in the atmosphere of days gone by. These avenues have not changed in centuries; narrow winding passages, sights and sounds all make up a wonderful place to take a couple of days away from the 'real world'. Although during the Palio and the three days lead up inter-district rivalry (there are 17 districts) is evident in the singing and 'flag' waving that goes on. A fun filled event over 500 years old.
