  2. Siena has such a rich history. This is why I wish to travel. To learn as well as experience these past treasures. Thank you for writing about it here. Now I really want to be there ~ one day, if I am very lucky ;D

  3. I’ve been to Siena for portions of two different Tuscany trips and loved so many things. I especially remember a lunch at da Divo that was so lovely. And I loved the frescoes in the medieval Santa Maria hospital. A little farther off, a day at San Galgano cathedral was a favorite. Stayed at the Hotel Santa Caterina for a week the second time and enjoyed everything about it.

  4. I visited Siena once for just a day but wished I could have stayed longer. There is something magical about your city. Thank you for liking my blog. I will follow you now.

  5. I visited Sienna a few years ago as a day trip from either Florence or Rome I can’t remember which, with my Parents and I was very impressed, we went to the main square where they have the palio and we went up the clock tower. Its a beautiful city and i remember walking through the streets in the sun looking for ice cream, it was a great day 🙂

  6. When I was living in Firenze in 1972, we came to Sienna for the Palio and stayed with friends in an apartment overlooking the Piazza del Campo. I remember standing on the balcony, watching the race and hearing about the Munich Olympics and the Israeli athlete hostage crisis. This makes no sense, since the race is held on 16 August, and the hostages were taken on 5 September, but that’s how I recall it. Every time I return to Sienna, this throws a melancholy cast over one of the beautiful cities of Europe, but we come anyway. Such are the odd juxtapositions we accumulate in life.

  7. Wao, I like the scenery at your home – Sienna. Definitely a good piece of information if i ever plan to go there 🙂

  8. I love Siena and have studied there several times over the last 7-8 years! Its one of the few cities ( other than my home town ) where I felt immediately at home and I’m planning to go back this summer! I’ve written a few blogs about Siena already and have more planned for this year! Have a look if you’ve not see it http://www.dreamdiscoveritalia.wordpress.com Buon nuovo anno! Cia per ora!

  9. Thanks for liking my story! I hope you thought it was funny! Anyway, I thought Siena was gorgeous- from what I saw 😉 I definitely recommend going to Siena during the time of the horse races! Unfortunately, I was there a week before the races, but we saw festive parades!

  10. Wow! I’m not sure how you randomly stumbled across my blog, but I actually visited Siena for five weeks a couple of years ago! I just looked through your blog, brought back some great memories! Thanks for the read!

  11. So happy to have found your blog of one of my favourite cities; so many wonderful memories. I will never forget the remarkable frescoes by Domenico di Bartoli in the Ospedale Santa Maria della Scala. Looking forward to following you and to returning to your beautiful city again one day.

  12. I unfortunately did not have time to visit Siena on my last trip to Italy!!! However, I was able to make it to the lovely Firenze! There is such beauty in the area and the food and culture is so rich. Siena is at the top of my list for my next Italian escapade!

  13. I spent a day in Siena last June. I loved it. I had one of my favorite gelatos there. I was there with a photography class and a few of us kept commenting on how we couldn’t take an ugly picture in Siena. Everything is so beautiful there! We set a challenge to find the “ugliest” photo, and even those came out beautiful in their own way.

  14. I visited Siena in 2010 and absolutely loved it. I loved the central Piazza where people sit on the ground and soak up the sun. It’s such a beautiful old University city. There I bought some Limoncello and took it home to share with my friends! =)

  15. Thanks for visiting my blog. I have been to
    Siena once, but it was over 20 years ago. We were staying in Florence over Christmas and it snowed! We still climbed the tower though – it was very windswept at the top. A beautiful city.

    • you are welcome:) my pleasure to visit your blog! 🙂 Lucky you 🙂 it snows rarely, last winter we haven’t seen snow here 🙂 wish you to come back then 🙂 Have a sunny and happy week 🙂

  16. What a great idea for a page! I visited Siena for one day from Florence and loved it. The atmosphere for the Palio was extraordinary and you can’t help but get swept up in it. I would recommend it to anyone going to Italy 🙂

  17. Oh my GOODNESS–Siena is a wonderful memory from my back packing adventures in Europa during 1993! I came out of my tiny hotel room for dinner, rather disturbed by how noisy the streets were. I had no idea about Palio and literally walked out in the midst of a parade!!! It’s one of the reasons I want to go back to Italia, showing my husband and son the wonders and beauty of the land. Yes, Siena is fabulous!!!!! You’re so lucky to live there!

  18. We had a short visit to Siena in August 2013- it was not long enough! The town was beautifully decorated after the Palio- and the atmosphere was still very festive even though it was a week later. I fell in love with the town- the Duomo and the baptistry were especially amazing. We loved Namastey Indian restaurant just a few blocks off the Piazza. We are living in Milano, Italy right now- so it was a nice change from eating Italian food =)


  19. I was an Erasmus student in Siena in 1994/1995. I’ve travelled a lot since then and it’s still one of the most magical cities in the world. There was a fantastic bar called Bar 115 on Via dei Rossi not far from the Piazza del Campo where we had some fantastic nights there and I recall they do a very good carbonara! Hope you’re enjoying Siena. I look forward to reading your posts.
