“Good views!”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

The Fortezza is a huge red bricked fortress with good views of Siena and the surrounding countryside. You can walk around the walls.
On Wednesday mornings the local market takes place in the streets surrounding the fortress.
When we were there in May/June a funfair was set up inside the fortress, which seemed a bit odd!

“Great for scenic photos of siena”
Reviewed 1 July 2012

This is a good spot to take your scenic photos of Siena. You can get the Duomo and the Tower of the Il Campo in the shot from this site and it gives an idea of the size of both of the attractions. Nice place for a stroll.

“Great location and views, definitely worth a visit.”
Reviewed 27 February 2012

A lovely quiet and central spot where the locals go for their morning walk/run. It has great views, but there's a lack of historical information about the fort. Certainly worth a visit if you're in the area.

“Great place for a walk”
Reviewed 17 January 2012

Great place for a walk during the early morning or the end of the day and to take nice pictures. You will have nice views from the valley by which Siena is surrounded and also be able to visit Enoteca Italiana.
