The Telegraph: Mid-range: Palazzo Ravizza (0039 577 280462; palazzoravizza.it) is an easy walk from various sights. Front-facing rooms are larger, but the rear, garden-view rooms are more romantic. Doubles from £73.
The Telegraph: It’s tempting to head to the Campo for a cappuccino. Resist: you’ll be back there soon enough. Instead, make for Piazza Salimbeni, at the northern end of Banchi di Sopra, Siena’s main artery.
The Telegraph: Osteria Le Logge (giannibrunelli.it; closed Sunday; mains from £11.30), with creative takes on Tuscan classics. Booking is recommended. Specify the main dining room and don’t accept tables upstairs.
The Telegraph: The Palazzo Pubblico has been Siena’s town hall for more than 600 years. Part of it houses the Museo Civico (archivio.comune.siena.it; £6.50) which has two of Italy’s most significant paintings.
