What people say

"Siena is a magical city tucked away in the hills of Tuscany. Siene can be reached by bus or train, and is only an hour away from Florence. Siena is the perfect location to spend a few days if you are looking to spend some time adventuring through Tuscany, but for this guide's sake, Siena is also a perfect day trip from Florence.

"Red-brick hilltop city known for its medieval pageantry, Palio horse race, proud spirit, and a stunning traffic-free main square — great anytime but best after dark. Also a fine jumping-off point for exploring the Tuscan countryside with a driving tour of the Crete Senesi region."
