Siena

Places of interest within the City

“It can be said with reason that what remains of medieval Siena and its artistic products has become an iconographic reservoir for the whole world. Besides the Palazzo del Comune and Piazza del Campo, the cathedral and the abandoned structures of the Duomo Nuovo, the Maest√† by Duccio di Boninsegna and that of Simone Martini, some of the tablets of Biccherna, slip before the eyes. And, of course, the Good Government of Ambrogio Lorenzetti. ”

The day will start mid - morning at Siena

Leave your car-or the our Minivan-in one of the lots that surrounds the city. For the past fifty years, the lastre are only viable by foot. We parked at Fonte branda parking lot and walked into the city, admiring its walls. The splendidSan Domenico Church is immediately on your left. Take the steep road-or pettata, as it is called in Siena-up and you will find yourself inPiazza del Campo, with its unique shell shape with nine corners, as much the center of life today as it was in XIV sec.. Admire the Torre del Mangia, Fonte Gaia, one of the most beautiful fountains, and a copy of the one originally sculpted by Jacopo della Quercia between 1409 and 1419.
