I am a Florentine Renaissance person, but seeing the great Sienese artists was a great treat. An empty museum but with some great art. A fun place to spend an hour.

Gorgeous collection of early Siennese art---don't miss it. Very quiet, at 5 euros a great value. Easy to find, near the Duomo.

This gallery was the absolute gem of Siena. Medieval paintings are arranged in chronological order making clear the changes in style over the years.

Just across from the Duomo, but relatively quiet and easy to navigate. Good bookshop and place to eat, can use without attending museum.

Pinacoteca has beautiful collection, but unfortunately there is a strange system - 1 hour is opened the first floor and the next hour the second (changing all day). The 3rd floor is opened all day. So I saw the first floor and did not wait...More
