Spend the day in Siena, which is a fabulous hill town that is approximately 43Km/27 miles from Villa Ampella La Torre. Siena is filled with a variety of shops, restaurants, and historical sites. For parking follow signs to the Stadio (stadium) and follow the soccer ball signs, which take you to the stadium lot (Parcheggio Stadio) – just outside the walls of Siena. Be sure to pay for parking.
Enjoy lunch in one of the restaurants lining the square (Il Campo), which is where the famous Palio horse race is run. Menus are posted outside, so review the menus before making your selection. Be sure to sit outside because the people watching is great fun. The Duomo, a 13th Century Gothic Cathedral is a must see. Take the Gate of Heaven tour of the Duomo, which is a tour of the cathedral’s roof. Buy tickets on the Duomo’s website.
