Siena was a main rival to Florence in medieval times, but was conquered by Florence and lost its influence. Siena has many splendid sights though from the time they were a major trading power and one of the leading European cities, and is considered one of the best medieval city experiences in Europe.

People travel to Siena to see the car-free city center, with its red brick streets radiating out from the Piazza del Campo (site of the famous Palio). Climb the City Tower for a great view of Siena and the surrounding Tuscany landscape, and visit Siena's giant and grand striped Duomo, with the bright frescoes of the Piccolomini Library. You'll find lots of information and reviews on these and other places in this Siena travel guide.

Travel Tips from people who've been to Siena
Depuis 1656, pendant 4 jours, chaque quartier de Sienne s’enflamme pour soutenir le cheval qui portera ses couleurs les 2 juillet et 16 août sur la célèbre Piazza del Campo. Inutile de préciser que dans le quartier vainqueur, la fête dure toute la nuit…

Sienne, œuvre d’art à ciel ouvert… Joyau de Toscane, Sienne c’est aussi la douceur de vivre au cœur d’un terroir exceptionnel et, à l’image des courses débridées du Palio, un brin de folie dans ses fêtes. Pour apprendre l’italien bien sûr et pour le plus grand plaisir des yeux et du palais, bienvenue à Sienne!
