Sienna (Siena), Tuscany, Italy

Sienna, gem of central Tuscany

Siena auf Deutsch

Sienna (Siena in Italian) is second only to Florence as a Tuscan “art” town, and, for many, its much smaller size and the absence of traffic in the historical centre make it more than the equal of Florence as a place to enjoy the treasures of Romanesque and Renaissance Italy, as well as the modern Italian lifestyle.

Among the sights of Sienna are:

  • The wonderful expanse of the Piazza del Campo and
  • The Duomo are the most important destinations for tourists visiting Sienna, closely followed by
  • The Palazzo Pubblico
  • Ospedale di Santa Maria della Scala in Siena
  • The Palio horse race takes place twice a year and is one of the most important festivals of Tuscany.
