This proved to be one of the highlights of our short Siena stay, and well worth the relatively short queueing time required. The views out across Siena are quite amazing and as good as those from the various other high vantage points. Highly recommended.

An extension that was supposed to propel Siena to further greatness before it was stopped by the Black Death. So many unfulfilled dreams lie at the walls of the Facciatone

The proposed plan envisioned a second nave perpendicular to the existing one. If completed, the addition...More
