Travel To Siena / San Gimignano, Italy

For our fourth days, we are heading to Siena & San Gimignano,Tuscany. If you are looking for a unique and unforgettable experience, traveling to Siena and Gimignano in Tuscany is an absolute must. These charming towns are packed with history, culture, and breathtaking views, making them perfect for anyone who wants to take a break from the hustle and bustle of daily life. With its rolling hills, vineyards, and olive groves, Tuscany is truly a sight to behold.


 Siena, located in Tuscany, Italy, boasts of its medieval architecture, which has been preserved since 1300.

This magnificent city has carefully maintained its unique heritage, making it a must-visit destination. 

Additionally, Siena is home to the oldest bank in the world, the Monte dei Paschi Bank, which has been in operation since 1472. To explore the surrounding areas, you can visit San Gimignano, known for its towering structures, often called the “medieval Manhattan.”


From the parking lot to the top of the hill, you will take the installed escalators, which take the sting out of walking up the slope. They will take you up close to Porta Camollia. 


From there, if you turn left, you can walk in a more or less straight line to Piazza del Campo, the main square at the heart of the city.


 ♥The walk down was just under a mile.

Siena Cathedral

Stroll through the stunning cathedral of Palio City, which has a breathtaking collection of rich artworks. The cathedral’s striking two-tone black and white design pays homage to the colours of the city of Siena’s coat of arms. Known as the Duomo di Santa Maria Assunta, Siena Cathedral is a remarkable example of Romanesque-Gothic architecture and is considered one of the most significant churches in Italy. 

The façade is made of white marble with decorative accents in red Siena marble and serpentine marble from Prato.

San Gimignano

San Gimignano is a small, walled medieval hill town in Siena, Tuscany, north-central Italy. Known as the Town of Fine Towers, it is famous for its medieval architecture. Unique in the preservation of about a dozen tower houses, San Gimignano’s hilltop setting and encircling walls form “an unforgettable skyline.” 


Within the walls, the well-preserved buildings include notable examples of Romanesque and Gothic architecture, as well as outstanding examples of secular buildings and churches.

Historic Centre of San Gimignano - Piazza della Cisterna

Piazza della Cisterna is a piazza in San Gimignano, Italy. It is triangular with a slight natural slope and is connected to the nearby Piazza del Duomo by an open passage. 


The pavement is brick, and houses and medieval towers surround the piazza.

Our next sleep over in Pisa

This place is just a 15-minute walk from Piazza dei Miracoli in Pisa. Although it’s a bit far away, you can see the Leaning Tower from the parking lot. The location is modern, clean, and has air conditioning. Additionally, there is complimentary Wi-Fi and friendly staff available. I’m looking forward to seeing the Pisa Tower tomorrow.


We stopped in Siena to see the white and black church.  However, overall, Siena was disappointing as it felt overly commercialized.
