General opinion:  Siena is a very popular tourist destination in Tuscany in Italy. The city is well known for its various museums, the cuisine and the beautiful art. While in Siena you will have many churches to visit, each one more beautiful than the other. The Siena Cathedral is one such place, make sure you have enough enjoy the church; the external architecture is as breathtaking as the interiors of the church. The fresh frescos of the Biblioteca Piccolomini make it a must visit place along with Duomo. Apart from the stunning frescos it also has very old music books on display. The Piazza Del Campo is another ... More place you cannot miss if you are in Siena, just to soak up the heritage sites around and enjoy the space itself .It’s the perfect place for people watching. Mangia Tower nearby offers stunning views from the top, but beware you will have to climb to the top to enjoy the view. Other great places to visit are Abbazia di San Galgano and the Palazzo Pubblico and Museo Civico.

Not to miss:  Most of Siena’s original constructions are from brick. Most of the fortified medieval town still stands within the modern city. The Gothic-style church, Duomo, houses some of the best examples of Tuscan art in the form of frescoes, mosaic and sculptures.
Il Campo is considered to be the best piazza in Italy. It was constructed in the shape of a fan and a climb to the top gives a great view of the surrounding Gothic structures. The primary one amongst them is the Palazzo Pubblico, the town hall, which houses the Civic Museum. A beautiful medieval time chapel, Cappella ... More della Piazza with a soaring brick tower, also stands here.
Siena’s Palio, a bareback horse race, is held in July and August is one of the best events in Italy. This daredevil event, which has its origins in the Middle Ages, sees week-long celebrations with parades and feasts apart from the actual race.

General opinion:  Siena is a town in Tuscany in the western part of Italy. This hillside town of approximately 54,500 inhabitants is nestled amidst the famed wine region of Tuscany. Siena is made up of several valleys covered with gardens, vineyards and olive trees.
Siena enjoys a sub-Mediterranean type of climate. The rainfall is restricted to spring and autumn. Summers are primarily dry with the average temperature at 23.3°C. Winters are chilly; January is the coldest month with the average temperature under 5°C.
Siena was a flourishing trading town during the Middle Ages. The merchants ... More of the town played a major role in beautifying the city with grand buildings. But, Siena did not develop into a modern commercial city. It still retains much of the medieval flavour and old time charm.
