This church is located on a pretty piazza and is just off the main pedestrian street. In a country of so many churches, some spectacular and some plain, this falls into the rather plain category. Nevertheless, the facade is classical and flanked by some impressive...More

Pleasant, ancient church in Piazza Tolomei. Around a five-minute stroll from Piazza del Campo A "secondary sight" but well worth a look if you're passing by.

The exterior entrance to this church with the columns and sculpture make for a very good photo. The fact that this is one of the oldest churches just increases the visit value. No charge to go inside.

This church dates from the 12th century and at one point was an important meeting place for the Council of the Republic of Siena. The Church was badly damaged in the 1798 earthquake and the current facade dates from 1800. The interior is fairly modest...More

This rather understated church is worth a brief visit, if only to get away from the crowds. By no means as ornate as others, it is perhaps better suited for a period of quiet reflection than most.

The church of San Cristoforo is a small building off Via Banchi di Sopra across Palazzo Tolomei. The church is claimed to be the site of a number of important historic events.

Siena has a fair few churches and they're all beautiful in their own way. This one isn't as ornate from outside as some of the other churches but still beautiful and worth a visit. We didn't go inside but if you have time it maybe...More

This Roman Catholic church dates back to the 11th - 12th century, making it one of the oldest in Siena. It sustained damage during an earthquake in 1798. Renovations were done in the 1920's. It is a small church but worth stopping in for a...More

A very nice little church not from the Duomo, an therefore often overlooked. Especially nice is the carved wooden statue of Padre Pio, Italy's most famous modern saint, hearing confessions.
