CLIMATE
Siena enjoys a continental climate, warm in summer and cold in winter. The ideal months to visit the city and its surroundings are April, May, June, September and October and, depending on the year, March and November. During the summer the temperatures are very high, and the surrounding hills and countryside become fiery, fortunately in the evening comes the cool. In winter, especially at night, it is not uncommon for the temperature to drop a few degrees below 0 and for snow to arrive in the higher areas.

 

DISABLED

Siena is distinguished by the attention it pays to people with disabilities on several fronts: from transport to cinemas, theaters, museums and also offers many possibilities with regard to accessible tourism. Travelling for tourists with disabilities is often difficult, as many facilities and public transport do not have easy access and do not provide assistance to this particular type of user. But this is not the case in Tuscany and in particular in Siena.

Taxi: There are nine vehicles used to transport disabled people in wheelchairs. The radio unit is active 24 hours a day; an operator is available from 07.00 to 19.00 and automatic service is available from 21.00 to 07.00.
Tourist Check-Point Bus: Bean, Fishing Route.

Trains: The Italian railways are well equipped for the assistance of disabled people. However, the Central Station of Siena is not able to offer complete assistance to people with disabilities.
Airports: Ampugnano Airport in Siena pays particular attention to the disabled, assisting them during embarkation and disembarkation. An assistant will accompany them on board the aircraft and wait for them on arrival, and many special equipment is available.
Hotels: There are several suitably equipped hotels in the city. In general, all hotels in Siena accessible for disabled people must be booked in advance.
