A city where one moment you are surrounded by towering medieval buildings and the next moment, simply turning the corner, you discover a breathtakingly beautiful panorama.
This is Siena, which always surprises and which guards, at various points in the historic center, extraordinary places from which it is possible to enjoy splendid views to photograph.

Panorama from the Bastion of San Domenico – Medici Fortress
The Medici Fortress blossoms with life during the spring and throughout the summer with events, concerts, people walking and playing sports, children playing, and romantic aperitifs on the San Domenico bastion.
It is a very pleasant and relaxing special place, and if you look out to the rampart at any time of the day you can admire this beautiful view!
Little tip: try waiting for the sunset, you won’t be disappointed!
Panorama from Vittorio Veneto Avenue
Did someone say panorama?
What a spectacular view, one could stand here and admire it all day: why not stop by at cocktail hour?
Panorama from Camporegio Street
This is a must-see place, from here you can enjoy one of the most beautiful views of the old city!
You can come and take your shot early in the morning or in the afternoon: avoid, mind you, the middle hours of the day when the sun is high and can interfere with the success of the photo.
Panorama from via di Diacceto
Take a leisurely stroll down a narrow street in the historic center and suddenly here is a beautiful overlook of the Basilica of San Domenico! This is your next shot! Even this view with the light of the sunset becomes really incredible!
Panorama from the Mangia Tower
My, how many steps! There are more than 400 of them, but at the end you will be able to enjoy a view that is unique in the world and look at Piazza del Campo from above: it looks just like a shell!
Panorama from via di Fontanella
Shot of a Sienese skyline lying on the green. This is a lesser known view of the city but definitely beautiful, isn’t it?
Nearby you can also take a break in the green of the Tolomei Gardens and enjoy other beautiful views!
