IN THE EVENING

It is true that Siena has the reputation of a quiet city, but you can still find many bars and pubs where to go for a drink, or to meet up in Piazza del Campo to listen to live music, to watch the shows improvised by street performers (like Fire eaters and Clowns), or just to eat a nice ice cream and enjoy the atmosphere.

The Sienese keep alive the tradition of a relaxing evening walks on via Banchi di Sopra, admiring the city and talking with friends.

URBAN TREKKING

A new concept of sustainable tourism that suggests to live the city as a place to go on foot, was born in Siena in 2002. The itineraries touch art monuments but also places of daily life, such as taverns, typical shops, markets, parks… The aim of the initiative is to improve the understanding of the city and its local identity, presenting it as an open-air museum, and to create a more “participative” relationship between tourists the places they visit.
