The perfect month to experience the city
Are you planning to spend a few days in Siena in April? Great idea.
April is the perfect month to discover Siena and spend time outdoors, getting lost in the alleyways, indulging in an ice cream break in Piazza del Campo or strolling along the walls of the Medici Fortress.
In April, the days become longer and tourists can enjoy the sunlight until late in the evening when the ideal time comes to enjoy a nice aperitif in the square.
Moreover, this month’s holidays gives you a few extra days off to extend your stay. Take advantage of National Liberation Day on 25 April and, if we are lucky, stay in town until 1 May for Labour Day.
The climate is perfect
The weather in April becomes very pleasant in Siena with temperatures usually reaching a high of 20 degrees and a low of 10, perfect for walking even in the middle of the day.
April is the perfect time to take a stroll through the city streets and enjoy all that the city has to offer, including its events.
