Too many sights to see, all with history and craftmanship we do not have today. I wish I had a helicopter to fly over and see it all.

I went to the Palazzo Pubblico to see Lorenzetti. Rather, its famous frescoes with allegories of Good and Bad government. The Palazzo Pubblico itself is an outstanding example of Gothic civil architecture. Frescoes "Maesta" Simone Martini, written in the early fourteenth century is something for...More

This is Siena Town Hall, with a museum inside it, which costs €9 to enter (there are combined ticket options too). The frescoes and paintings are amazing, especially the famous ones on good & bad government. The building is pretty stunning from outside too.

Oh no! Not another Italian public museum and civic palace! Oh yes, and worth an hour or more of your time. The building itself, on the Campo where the Palio takes place, is slightly curved to embrace the public space. Inside, it is as grand...More

We visited the Museo for a couple of hours. There are a few nice frescoes but, that apart, it does not have much to recommend it. The entrance charge of 9 euros is completely over the top. We visited Florence earlier in the week. The...More

When you are done people-watching and getting your on-ground pano shots, go up and get a birds-eye view of the city at the museums in the area. The cathedral is worth the ticket price, too.
