When you stay in rooms and apartments at the Donna Nobile Bed and Breakfast San Gimignano, in just a few minutes you can reach the wonderful city of Siena, universally known for its historical, artistic and landscape heritage, recognised by UNESCO in 1995.
Siena is one of Italy's most beautiful medieval cities, located in the heart of Tuscany. It is famous for its Palio, the traditional horse race well-known around the world, that takes place on 2 July and 16 August each year in the famous Piazza del Campo, with its special shell shape. The Duomo, built between 1214 and 1263 in Gothic style, hides a wealth of treasures by Donatello, Pisano and Michelangelo, as well as frescoes by the famous Pinturicchio.
Siena has a long tradition of cooking due to its wealth during the medieval period and the presence of numerous taverns and hospitality points along Via Francigena. Walking around its alleys, you can discover local food and wine products in small wine shops, delicious taverns and restaurants.
