Preparing your trip to Siena: advices & hints - things to do and to obey

Wasp 1. Travelers who plan to rent a car have to consider that there is a shortage of free parking spaces in the city. Some of the best car parks are located near Fortezza Medicea and next to the city stadium.
2. It is comfortable to explore city on foot, as all important sights are located close to each other. Siena is located in a hilly area, so hikers should be sure to take comfortable shoes with them.
3. Tourists having enough of time should definitely make a trip to one of the nearby cities. Rome and Florence can be easily reached by train or bus, the last departs from the square in front of the train station.
4. The most favorable time for a trip to Siena is from May to September; it is extremely warm and sunny in this period of time. Holiday-makers should take into account that quite a lot of tourists visit the city in summer, so it is recommended to book a hotel room in advance.

It’s better to buy tickets in advance in kiosks available at all public transport stops; ticket cost is about 0.9 euro. Also, tickets can be purchased from a driver, but in this case the cost will be higher. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
6. At any time of the day taxi service is available for vacationers. Taxi is called by phone. In Siena there is a single tariff for taxis; weekends’ and holidays’ tariff may be a little bit higher.
7. Thrifty travelers and those who prefer to visit only budget restaurants have to pay attention to local bakeries. There you can buy not only fresh bread, but also delicious pastries and a variety of sweets at most attractive prices.
Siena is a medieval city that carefully keeps the traditions of ancient times. It is situated on three hills. This fact creates the impression that Siena is divided into three small towns. … Open
8. Fans of quiet rest are recommended to visit Siena in summer, when the bulk of local students return home. During the school year, there is quite noisy and lively atmosphere in the city, entertainment venues and restaurants can be crowded.
9. Shoppers should pay attention to pottery and local wines; they remain the most popular souvenirs for tourists and are of high quality. It’s better to buy them in specialty stores.
