Siena Maps and Orientation
(Siena, Tuscany, Italy)
A traditional Italian city busting with Tuscan character, the World Heritage Site of Siena still remains very much steeped in history. Much of Siena is bounded by ancient medieval city walls, which still boast their very original gateways.
Central Siena is relatively small and compact, and is therefore easily manageable on foot. However, the many winding streets centred around the Piazza del Campo (Il Campo) are often a little confusing for those without a map to hand. These streets include the Banchi Sotto and the Banchi di Sopra, both of which are particularly close to the Piazza Indipendenza.
Maps and Orientation of the City
The tourist office on the Piazza del Campo offers a reasonable map of the city, although for some people this is a little small and basic. Those looking for a more substantial map of Siena should consider purchasing an inexpensive copy of the Litografia Artistica Cartografia map, which comes complete with useful street index and clear labels.
