I wonder why so few tourists walk around the walls of the Siena fortress. It is really well worth it. The views of the town seen from another perspective are wonderful. What seems incredible when you see the thickness of the outer walls is that it took only 2 years, 1561-1563, to build and that with no help from modern... 更多
It might not be as pristine as some of Siena's attractions but La Fotezza provides a peaceful afternoon away from the crowds of the centro storico. The fort is highlighted by it's vast walls and lovely views of the city. There is an enoteca, a restaurant and on the west side of the fort there are public gardens. If ou... 更多
Locals use it as a public park - lots of outdoor activity, jogging in the shade of trees, using gyms etc. Tourist, on the other hand, tend to get here to finalize their stay in Siena. I would suggest reversing that order - just have a quick visit in the morning, make some picturesque photos (you will enjoy the view,... 更多

A great place to visit and appreciate gorgeous views of Siena, its free to enter and makes for a very pleasant walk. Its close to the bus station so we visited before catching our bus back to Florence, a great way to end the day and to say goodbye to Siena.
If you have time, it is a nice little walk around the Fortress walls. It offers good views of the city and it is quite lovely in itself.
We walked to this fortress towards the end of our day in Siena. It is easy to access and is free to walk in. It is set in a park and is an easy walk up ramps to the walls, where there are far reaching views over the town and surrounding countryside. A good way to end the visit.
This castle is very large and all the walls are excellent condition. It is easily accessible and has easy access to the walls. It is a hard surface with only a few easy steps to negotiate. The views are terrific and very photogenic. It is quite a large castle but for some reason appears to be bigger on the outside... 更多
