Much has been written about the beauty of Tuscany but there is nothing like experiencing it firsthand. Our low cost car rental Sienna service offers an easy inexpensive way of cramming in as many Tuscan delights as possible. Siena may be the perfect place to begin your Tuscan adventure.
Siena is located in Tuscany in the North West of Italy. It can also be written as “Sienna”. The closest airports are Florence Airport (Peretola) and Pisa Airport (Galileo Galilei). Tourists flock to this historical city every year. The centre of the city is a World Heritage Site.
The cathedral in Siena is a fantastic piece of Romanesque architecture. There were lofty ambitions for the cathedral when work began on it with plans to make it the biggest cathedral in the world before funds ran dry. Step inside this marvelous building and take a look at the Pisano’s octagonal pulpit. Superb examples of fifteenth century sculpting can be found within such as the baptismal font by Donatello.
Head for Piazza del Campo (town square) next and check out the Palazzo Pubblico, a splendid building in which you will find an art museum featuring the fresco works of Ambrogio Lorenzetti which focus on the effects of governments over the years.
If you fancy a nice walk and some scenic surroundings then head for the botanical gardens which are looked after by the local university. A major music festival takes place every two years which features over thirty concerts taking place at both town squares. This event is run in conjunction with the Siena School of Jazz.
