Siena is known for 13th and 14th century altar pieces and this museum is full of them- lavishly gilded with gold and done in luminous colors. Also, it's not too big and can easily be visited in a morning before lunch or late afternoon.

This has a wonderful collection of 13th and 14th century Sienese art and is a must see attraction if that is your thing. It is also blissfully empty of tourists so you can enjoy the Duchies and Martinis in peace. It really brings home the...More

Do not miss this even if, like me, you're not a big fan of religious art. The collection of Medieval altar paintings on wood is extensive and rich as the style of that area included abundant gold backgrounds. I personally love the more primitive two-...More
