Our everyday life, your discoveries
Siena is a small Medieval Town you can visit in one day or stay longer to discover its hidden places. Think about the Duomo, the Museum of Opera, the old hospital Santa Maria della Scala, the majesty of Basilica di San Domenico, the Pinacoteca Museum and our wonderful Piazza del Campo and its horse race Palio.
