Subjects : The city of Siena is full of interesting subjects photographically, whose list of those that I consider most important. In Piazza del Campo, for example, there is already a wide choice: the Public Palace with the Torre del Mangia, Fonte Gaia, as well as the square itself (especially during the Palio). Moving through the alleys to reach the Duomo (Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta), which is an architectural spectacle that you can not capture. In the same square of the cathedral there is the complex of Santa Maria della Scala hospital in Siena until shortly after the Second World War, now a museum. Also in the old town are interesting the Palazzo Chigi-Saracini and Piazza Salimbeni (where there is the historic seat of the Monte dei Paschi). Outside the walls of the old town are countless points photographic overlooking the surrounding countryside, who may not have the charm of Crete, but they are characteristics (especially for those coming from outside).

Recommended equipment : It depends on the subject to be photographed, but for the most wide-angle lenses are advisable or average, with focal not too high. Council staff to acquire equipment is not too heavy, considering the numerous alleys of the old town and the possibility of a long way on foot to visit for the entire portion of the city that is located inside the walls.

Best months : Periods "hottest" are undoubtedly the occurrences of the Palio, July 2 and August 16, in which Piazza del Campo is transformed completely and fills with people. Keep an eye on the period after the Palio, in which the winning contrada celebrates festivities to the bitter end, excellent opportunity to make a reportage.Palio aside, an interesting period is Christmas, with the majestic tree place in Piazza Salimbeni, offering a nice light show thanks to lighting of buildings in the piazza.Per else, any time of year is good for visiting Siena.

How to get there : By Air: The nearest airports are Pisa and Florence; The regional transport company offers a shuttle bus service from Pisa airport to train Siena.In: sore of Siena, which is not connected by rail at national level; the station of Siena is connected with Florence to the north, or with Chiusi-Chianciano south, so if you come from areas "extra-Tuscany" you are forced to a minimum cambio.In bus: Buses compensate the shortcomings of the railway Siena since it is connected in an excellent manner with several Italian places; among the most important companies are the Baltour, offering lines to / from Abruzzo, Calabria, Emilia Romagna, Friuli Venezia Giulia (only Palmanova and Trieste), Lazio (only 4 stops in Rome), Lombardy, Marche, Piedmont (only Alexandria and turin), Puglia, Umbria and Veneto; being part of the group Eurolines, the bus company Baltour also offers an international route Lyon-Paris-London, with stops in Italy; with regard to other regions are mostly local companies, including Marozzi, with links Basilicata, Campania and Puglia.In car: if you come from the north the route is to take the A1 and then exit at Firenze Impruneta, and from there continue for about 65km along the highway Florence-Siena; for those coming from the center-south, always along the A1, the ideal output is to Valdichiana-Sinalunga, from which to take the Siena-Bettolle (about 50km).

Visits : Much of the museum complex and the cloisters of the old town are extra. You should inquire in advance if you plan to visit a specific place.

Notes : I could not find the city of Siena between destinations and, indeed, from the map were only Monteriggioni, the Crete and San Galgano. This is why I decided to add the item, if it deserves all.
