Siena is such a photogenic city, but it's not easy to get good general views (morning from sta Maria dei Servi; evening from San Domenico, Torre del Mangia if your heart is OK) This is one solution, and not as airily exposed as some guidebooks...More

Be prepared for the climb but what a view! You can see all of the walled city and miles outside. This was an experience of a lifetime. My calves killed me the next day because we did all 5 museums in the tour.

I was in Florence on business and traveled to Siena with colleagues on a free day. We walked all around Siena and visited the Facciatone. A must see, particularly if you visit the Duomo.

We had to queue for about 40mins inside as it was very busy (May). But is was well worth the wait! The steps are narrow and spiral - not recommended for anyone with a fear of small spaces or heights. And the views were spectacular...More
