A Tour of Siena Italy

This Tuscan Hill Town is Full of History and Color

tour italy to sienaOn most of The Traveling Professor tours to Italy, we try to make a stop in at least one Tuscan hill town.  My choice for the best spot to visit would be Siena.  It is close to Florence and makes for an easy day trip.   There is plenty to see and do in Siena.  The food is good and one of the best piazzas in Italy, Il Campo, is a terrific way to enjoy your meal.  Read the blog post to find out more about a visit to Siena.

The Duomo of Siena

A Must See When Visiting Siena

Many of our small group tours to Italy include a visit to Siena.  It is only an hour or so away from Florence by bus and a pleasant ride through the Chianti countryside.   Once arriving in Siena, we usually sit in Il Campo, the most beautiful of all Italy squares and enjoy a cafe or have lunch.    After that, I always make sure to visit the interesting, colorful, and historical Duomo.   See my blog post on what to see and do when traveling to Siena and visiting the Duomo.

How to do a Day Trip from Florence to Siena

Traveling Professor in SienaEveryone loves Siena.   It is a Tuscan hill town about an hour or so away from Florence. It has a beautiful piazza, great food, and a Duomo on an acid trip (you'll see what I mean when you get there).   Whenever we do a small group tour to Florence, we like to take a day trip there.  It is easy to get to, a great way to spend the day, and has just enough to see to make it interesting.   Check out the blog post to see how I do my Siena day trip.

The Best Austrian City in Italy

Trieste VisitThere is much more to Italy than Rome, Florence, and Venice.  We do recommend visiting those three cities if you have never been to Italy before.  However, there is so much more to explore.  In between trips to Croatia, we had the opportunity to go up to Trieste, very close to the Croatia and Slovenia border. Although we spent only a short time there, we found it to be a refreshing and most enjoyable way to experience Italy.  Read about our short visit to Trieste in today's blog post.
