Set among the rolling hills of Tuscany, Siena is the provincial capital in central Italy. Siena has an extensive history, dating to the Etruscan era, although most of the town's growth didn't occur until the Middle Ages. Take a walk up one of the many surrounding hills to gain a birds' eye view of Siena, in many ways identical to how it looked in the medieval period.

The best way to appreciate the town is to embrace the Italian lifestyle, enjoying a coffee and people-watching in the Piazza del Campo. After this, visit the Duomo di Siena to view its Gothic exterior, intricate mosaic floor, and many of the preserved works of Catholic worship that lay inside.

After a long day of exploring, refuel with some mouthwatering local cuisine. Visit any of the authentic Sienese restaurants to try pici, a type of pasta, and make sure to sample at least one of the many famous desserts from the region.

Siena's central location in Italy makes it easy to access from major metropolises like Rome, Paris, or Barcelona. Ampugnano Airport is only 9 kilometers from the city, although Florence and Pisa airports offer more frequent flights with a wider choice of airlines. Frequent trains pass through Siena from several cities in Italy, and two bus lines operate between Florence and Siena.
