Piazza del CampoThe beautiful shell shaped square is thought to be the most magnificent medieval square in Europe. The focal point is the town hall, the Palazzo Pubblico with its distinctive bell tower, the Torre del Mangia. There are 400 steps to the top but it's worth it to experience the panoramic vista from the top. Fans of James Bond will recognise the square as it featured in the film Quantum Solace during the famous biannual horse race the Palio. Choose a unique B&B from Bed and Breakfast Siena and sip a coffee in one of the bars in Siena's social hub.
DuomoThe Siena Cathedral is a magnificent structure, carved from white and green marble. A majestic example of Romanesque-Gothic architecture. Built in the 12th century it displays the skills of countless Renaissance artists. The lavishly decorated interior contains original frescos and an elaborate mosaic floor as well as sculptures by Donatello and Michelangelo. During your stay in a Bed and Breakfast Siena you must spend some time here, it truly is a treasure trove.
Sienese CuisineThe food in Siena is what you'd expect from Tuscany. Rich filled pasta and slow cooked meats but it's the confectionary that is the real star. Home of the Panforte, a fruitcake like bread and the Ricciarelli, delicious almond paste biscuits. After a day sampling the art treasures be sure to treat yourself with a glass or two of the local Chianti.
