Best things to do in Siena
Siena, a UNESCO world heritage site since 1995, with its medieval walls, wide squares, towers and age-old buildings is a timeless gem. Our tour begins in a truly special location: a historic 17th century building, home to Grand Hotel Continental. The hotel, set among the city’s medieval sandstone-paved streets, is located along the so-called Corso Senese, on via Banchi di Sopra: the city’s main street, lined with shops offering local products, including the historic Pasticceria Nannini at number 24.
