The most atmospheric streets for a special evening
Siena is a city that offers just the right mix of fun and relaxation, perfect for those who want to spend a pleasant evening with friends or family.
If you’re looking for some ideas on what to do in the evening in Siena, you’ve come to the right place.
In this article, we will provide some tips on where to go and what to do to enjoy an unforgettable evening.
Entertainment in Siena is all about simplicity and sharing.
You will find no over-the-top activities, but a slow movida. Simply enjoy a coffee at the bar or a beer in a pub in the old town for a pleasant and relaxing evening.
The rhythm of the town’s medieval heart is often enlivened by musical events and, above all, good food and excellent wine.
In the alleys of the old town, you can find numerous restaurants and clubs where you can spend an evening with friends enjoying local delicacies.
The aperitifs are always busy, both indoors and outdoors. The culinary journey starts from Via Camollia, on to Piazza del Sale, the main hub of course. Other places with a retro and refined taste are waiting for you around the Cathedral, in Via Banchi di Sotto and continuing in Via Pantaneto.
However, if you are looking for the ultimate scenic tasting then you should sit at a table in Piazza del Campo square.
What to do after dinner?
If you’re in the mood for a relaxing after-dinner drink, you can indulge in hot tea accompanied by a slice of cake in rooms with a vintage, retro atmosphere near Piazza del Mercato square, serenaded by live music.
Near the central Piazza del Campo, and in the surrounding streets, you will find pubs ready to offer you excellent cocktails, local wines and the best selection of craft beers.
On warm summer evenings, you can have fun under the starry sky, savouring the atmosphere of the neighbourhood parties.
Usually, the evening ends with a nice walk through the city streets, packed with Sienese, students and tourists, and a chat in Piazza del Campo.
