One relaxed place to go to and feel the old treasures and history of Siena. Paintings, architecture, sculptures... its all there. The relaxed way things are on display give the welcome feeling of intimacy.

This is a must for any visitor to Siena. Extraordinary. A class act of a museum. I take groups to Siena and this is always at the top of the list. No one is ever disappointed in Museo Archeologico.

When visiting Sta Maria della Scala we went down to this incredible place, down in the basements. Artifacts from the Etruscans, a beautiful jewelry collection and incredible art lies in these crypts. Amazing experience.
