While other Italian cities impress with Renaissance splendour, Siena’s charm lies in its sleepy character and ochre-coloured streets. The heart of the city is the central piazza, Il Campo; the red-brick social hub makes a perfect spot for people watching over a cappuccino or enjoying an evening aperitif. Il Campo is dominated by the Torre del Mangia tower, standing at almost one-hundred meters in height – climb the four-hundred steps to the top and be rewarded by the best view over the city below. You also must admire the magnificent Fonte Gaia, the largest fountain in the city. The water that flows from it still travels through the mediaeval passages that carry water from the countryside some twenty-five kilometres away.

In a Piazza above Il Campo, stop to see Siena Cathedral, a spectacularly gothic white marble masterpiece with elaborate interiors featuring invaluable treasures by Pisano, Donatello and Michelangelo, plus frescoes by Pinturicchio. As you would expect of such a historic and richly cultural city, there is also a substantial number of museums to visit, filled with collections of prestigious works of fine art and fascinating historical relics – see one of the best painting collections at the Museo Civico or Pinacteca Nazionale.
