Tips and Advice for Shopping in Siena
A holiday in Siena may be an opportunity for you to dedicate yourself to quality shopping
! Indeed, in the town of the Palio there are plenty of clothes shops, handicrafts shops, confectioneries and wine shops. Places you can enter just out of curiosity and you cannot leave without having bought something for you and some gifts for your relatives and friends.
The main shopping streets
- which you should visit as soon as you have left your luggage in your apartment in Siena - are Via di Cittΰ and Banchi di Sopra (which are both close to Piazza del Campo), and Via dei Montanini (which is in proximity to the Medicean Fortress and to the "Artemio Franchi" stadium).
Then you have the many picturesque street markets
scattered all over the town, where you can make really good bargains.
Do not forget that during the winter and summer sale seasons

If you prefer, you could spend a day in a outlet village
. The closest to your villa, holiday farm or farmhouse in Siena is the Valdichiana Outlet Village, next to the A1 motorway exit, or, if you are coming from the town of the Palio, at the exit Bettolle along the Siena-Perugia expressway. You will really find any kind of goods there!
