Siena lies on top of three hills and hence it’s tough to run. Fortezza Medicea might be the best place for some exercise. It has great view overlooking the old town, quiet place which is not crowded, and most importantly 1.2km track. Don’t miss this place if you are a runner.

The fortress walls provide a good view of the city and a great picnic spot. There's a bar/restaurant just inside the gate which is nice, put the walls are where all the activity is. LOts of joggers and walkers in the evening.

Our guide told me I was the first of his guests to ever visit the fort, which was right behind our hotel. Though plain (it was built by the victorious Florentines to prove they won!), it offers great views of the city, and houses a really good restaurant. Great place for an early morning walk.

This is an open fortress overlooking Siena and gives wonderful views across to the city and out to the countryside. It if free to enter and just stroll along the walls and through the large drill square for a peaceful walk.
