WHERE TO PARK IN SIENA?
For the visit of Siena, I recommend that you use your car.
Visiting Siena by car is in fact the best way to reach it, because the train station is not exactly in the historical center. The walk from the train station to the historical center of Siena is not long (about 15/20 minutes) but we don't always have the time to do it.
