To the question: where to go on New Year’s Eve this year? The answer is, Siena. A “niche” destination compared to the most popular destinations for 2024 which hides quite a few gems to discover and a thousand other reasons to visit it. Especially at the end of the year!
Why come to Siena on New Year’s Eve 2024?
Simple because Siena is one of those cities that, for New Year’s Eve, allows you to forget your car. Everything is within reach, from the restaurant where you can dine while waiting for midnight to the place where you can toast the arrival of the new year. And still enjoy the festively lit streets that dress the centre, a UNESCO heritage site since 1995, as a grand soirée.
A motif that goes alongside the program of Christmas in Siena, rich and varied, where one of the great end-of-year classics is not missing: the concert with an important guest of Italian music such as Emma Marrone accompanied by the comic duo PanPers. And more music and fun, after the concert, with an exceptional DJ: Dj Angelo. Location? One of the most beautiful and famous squares in the world: Piazza il Campo.
Precisely because it is possible to forget the car, Siena is a safe city and suitable for families with children. You can get around on foot very easily without traffic problems and fear of dangerous crossings even if there are ups and downs.
It is full of glimpses and hidden places in which you can get lost and relive the atmosphere of celebration and conviviality like those who live it all year round, perhaps enjoying the view of roofs, alleys and lights that illuminate a postcard, a shot of a nativity scene in to feel part of, especially for New Year’s Eve.
Then there is room for the pleasures of the table with local dishes, made of tradition and local products, which describe a range of choices based on both different locations and budgets. The result? A variety of food and wine proposals that satisfy everyone.
Last but not least, Siena is one of the best preserved historic cities in Tuscany. Medieval jewel still surrounded by walls. An open-air museum that deserves to be seen especially during the magic of the holidays!
