We did a day trip out to Sienna via the train. The train is very easy and drops you at the bottom of the city. Then we took a long escalator up to the old city. We enjoyed wondering through the streets that are a bit less crowded before reaching the Piazza Del Campo. There is a great coffee shop on the corner right when you enter the old town gates.

Loved this restaurant. The kitchen has a large window that looks out to the streets. Just one block off of the Piazza Del Campo. Make a reservation, ask to sit on main floor.

Dream of returning to Castello di Vicarello with my Mom for a cooking class with the owner Aurora.
We stayed here at the Podere Carceroni, just down the street from Castello di Vicarello. Great pool, lovely flower lined gazebo and nice breakfast.
