Bold brickwork

With medieval buildings around every corner, Siena is a patchwork of burnt burgundy brickwork with some terracotta rooftops dotted about. Hang out in Piazza del Campo for a full view of your surroundings, and explore Siena Cathedral and Palazzo Pubblico. Torre del Mangia is an impressive tower, too.

Fine feasts

Wild boar is often the hero of a main dish, served with thick ribbons of pappardelle. For starters or afters, cheese is a big favourite. Daring enough to try liver? The locals are big fans of it! If you’ve got a sweet tooth, you’ll enjoy panforte, a cake made of nuts and spices.

The treasures of Tuscany

With Florence, Lucca and Pisa all a few hours away, you can experience even more of Tuscany. Check out cityscapes of grand domes, cycle around quaint streets, and snap a selfie by the Leaning Tower. But it gets better still – with so many lush vineyards around, wine tasting has never been so exciting.
