Hiring a car in Siena is the best way to visit this city famous for the Palio and Chianti wine. Browse through our website to choose a car and in a few minutes Tuscany will be yours. Siena is a fervid city with a huge artistic and historical heritage. The city is internationally known for its Palio and for the beauties spread all over its area. You can discover its allure by taking advantage of our car hire service. It will be a memorable experience. Arriving in Siena by hire car allows you to partake to the charm of this city founded in the middle of the Chianti hills. Entering the city by the old fortified walls and climbing upwards will prove a memorable experience. Coming from Florence, the first gate you will find is Porta Camollia: you can begin from here. Just take into account that Siena’s city center is mostly pedestrian-only. However, your hire car will come in handy to visit the outdoor areas. Rising to Piazza del Campo, we find Chiesa di San Domenico. Here Saint Catherine’s head is preserved, since Siena was her hometown, and we can enjoy the sight of the exquisite Gothic black-and-white works. Let us walk via della Sapienza to take a look at Palazzo Salimbeni, Saint Catherine’s house, and Palazzo Spannocchi, whence you can view all Piazza del Campo, Torre del Mangia and Palazzo Comunale (City Hall Palace) included. In this shell-like square, there is the Palio, an intense show which takes place twice a year under the protection of the tower. The Duomo and the nearby Santa Maria della Scala Hospital are in order for a visit. Especially during Palio days, take also a look at the many contrade (quarters) of the city.

Once you are done with the architectural spree, you will need some rest. Remember that Siena lies in the middle of Chianti. Therefore, a salami-based lunch accompanied by the prestigious local wine will be the best kickstarter for a visit in the surrounding hills dotted by many charming fortified towns. Drive your car to Colle Valdelsa and the Balearo Castle. Or pay homage to Dante and the Divine Comedy by passing through Monteriggioni, an ancient fortified village protected by seven towers. Then, back on your car: let’s reach Radda and Castellina in Chianti, the main sites for the production of this famous wine. Roam extensively on these hills: you will not regret it. Finally, take a look at Poggibonsi on your way to San Gimignano. With our car hire service, Siena’s taste and the colours will forever lie in your memory.
