Everyone talks about Florence, but Siena is one of the pearls of the Toskana. You can easily combine sight seeing with shopping all in walking distance. If your are a fashionista check out these stores in Siena. The city is situated up in the hills, so park your car at the train station or the parking lot called San Francesco and use the five escalators to reach the city.
I suggest you go on a Wednesday and combine the weekly market between 8-13h (Via La Lizza) with city shopping in the afternoon. But plan a break for a coffee or Spritz at Caffe del Corso and have a bite at the market.
The weekly “Mercado” is pretty large for such a small city and comes with all you need. Fresh fruits and vegetables, burrata, or a snack on the go.
Regarding fashion you may find some very exclusive picks or dresses starting from 5€. With the right eye for style ladies can find a special dress with Italian style for low budget.
If you are more into real stores, here are some names you should check out in google maps when planning your trip.
Let me close with a few pics of looks and pieces I liked this summer.
As a result my wife got some real good discount on Moschino things and I found the most craziest shoes I had so far. And finally “grazie mille” at my friend Fabio for showing us Siena.
