Photo of the Week: Siena From Above

I’ve visited Siena a few times before but am always struck by its beauty. This week we had the pleasure of visiting again and of experiencing one of my favourite Italy activities – climbing towers. After climbing Torre del Mangia’s 400 narrow winding steps we were rewarded with a fantastic view of the Piazza del Campo below, the terracotta buildings of the city, and the green Tuscan countryside.

  1. Siena is one of my favourite towns in Italy. I never climbed Terre del Mangia but I did climb up to Panorama del Facciatone near the cathedral which gave very similar views out across the town. Just beautiful!

    • It wasn’t that bad and was definitely worth it for the view. Plus we needed to burn off all the pizza and gelato we’d been eating!

    • It was in the mid 20s when we climbed up but it might be a bit more difficult this week as it’s in the mid 30s. Things stay pretty cool inside those stone walls though.

  4. Nice view! I was there, but I did not climb the tower. It was very hot on that day…32 Degree Celsius, so I decided to walk around the city and of course ate ice cream!
