Last week, I mentioned that I would be going out of town. Well, I am finally revealing to you that I was in Siena.
Siena was everything I expected and more. You immediately feel the history of this city the minute you walk in to town. It’s hard not to with those narrow brick walls and cobblestones that seemed to keep going every corner you go. If that wasn’t enough, then, you will definitely feel it when you find yourself in the middle of the town-square. It was one of my favorite part of Siena because people can sit in the middle of the square, enjoying the sun while they ate, drank and socialized.
Siena Cathedral: Duomo di Siena was built in 14th century. It reflects the Romanisque style with striped details in black and white with pyramid shape roof. It’s a must see! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siena_Cathedralj
To get tickets for the Duomo and the museums, you have to go to the ticket center. There’s only 1 building that sells tickets and it’s near the Duomo. It is literally right around the corner from it and it’s hard to miss it as there are lines outside the building. You can buy single tickets for each point of interest or you can buy them in a bundle. The bundles are between 15-20 euros and the singles varies from 5-10 euros.
