If you are a fan of Sienese paintings you can't miss a visit to the Pinacoteca Nazionale Museum, just a 5 minute walk from Siena's cathedral.

This was an amazing collection of Sienese masters from the 12th through the 16th centuries. I have to admit that I was completely overwhelmed in a short amount of time by so many Madonna and Childs - and by all of the dazzling gold leaf...More

The pinacoteca nazionale contains a first-rate art collection featuring primarily Sienese artists from the late middle ages to the late Renaissance. It is a great place to spend an hour or two, away from the tourist crowds. It also offers spectacular views of Siena which...More

I am no expert in late medieval Italian art, but after trekking for 3 hours through this museum, across the street from our VRBO, I know a lot more than I did before. The stylistic customs and variations in early Christian art depicting St. Catherine,...More

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

I feel a bit sheepish about "reviewing" museums--especially one of this high quality. It has occurred to me that if, for example, the Brooklyn Museum or the Newark Museum were in a different city in the US, either one would be ranked--as they should be--among...More

We were the only two in this museum(what a pity!). If you know a little about art history, you probably realise that there was Florentine reneissance(mostly quatrocento) and Sienne reneissance(trecento). If you're interested in Trecento, there is no better place than Pinacoteca to see many,...More
