Siena


Located in the heart of Tuscany, just 70 km south of Florence, Siena is Italy´s best preserved medieval city with a population of about 56,672 people. Once a wealthy, warlike independent state during the Middle Ages, Siena experienced a few hundred years of poverty after its final defeat by Florence. Since then, Siena has maintained its lovely medieval buildings and Gothic architecture, and today’s new constructions adapt to this character and beauty.

Siena is a major tourist attraction and home to one of the oldest Universities in Europe, which adds for a vibrant student atmosphere and a bustling daily life. Siena offers many cultural events, concerts, cinema, theatre and a wide range of sporting activities. In the summer, there is the Siena Jazz Festival, and the classical concert by the Accademia Musicale Chigiana. Settimana Musicale Senese features various concerts around the city.

Siena stores offer many locally made items, such as, leather products, neckties, fabrics, glazed terracotta, gold jewellery, and of course local food, such as, Panforte, Ricciarelli, Pici and many wines. Every Wednesday morning a huge market is held around the Fortezza Mediceana.

Siena wonderfully blends the natural beauty of Tuscany with the historic elegance of its medieval influence.
