    Default Sienna on Sunday

    We are planning to visit Sienna on a Sunday in May. Will everything be open? the tourist attractions/museums/ duomo/shops?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Everything is open on Sundays - in Siena, you should visit the Palazzo Pubblico (the frescoes of Good and Bad Government are AMAZING - consider when they were made!) and them climb up the tower to look down into Piazza del Campo! Then head to the Duomo and buy the OPA Si pass so that you can visit the inside of the Church, the Baptistery, the museum (which has another view from above of Siena) and the crypt between the cathedral and baptistery. All of these are open 7 days a week year round, with only a few exceptions around Palio time, but that's in July and August so not a problem for you in May!
    Enjoy Siena, I truly love it and am glad when people spend more than a few hours there -- if you have the chance, spend the entire day and soak in the atmosphere at dinner when any crowds are gone ;-)

    We are going to Siena later this year to spend a short vacation with the hubby, looking forward to discover the medieval city of the Palio, Duomo of Siena, Piazza del Campo and their museums.

    Default Romantic get away in Siena


    Siena is a wonderful place to escape for a couple of days...just wander the city streets...it is large enough to keep you active but small enough to make you feel right at home.

    You might like the insider scoop on a few restaurants in the area that are delicious (and romantic), you cn read this new article: http://www.discovertuscany.com/siena...-in-siena.html

    and if you are looking at doing a few day trips this article will give you some ideas - especially if you are travelling without a car: http://www.discovertuscany.com/siena...rom-siena.html

    Buon Viaggio,

    Donna Denise
