The province of Siena has always been a favorite destination for those who choose to spend a short stay or holidays in Tuscany. The reasons why so many people operate this choice are many but, quite briefly, let's list a few.

In general, we can certainly say that so many people love the vast land of Siena for his art, for the many spas that give relaxation and well-being, for the splendid nature that distinguishes it, for its rich food and wine, and to visit the UNESCO World Heritage which counts.

With regard to art, the territory of Siena is the province in which they are the Sant'Antimo Abbey, the Abbey of San Galgano, the legendary San Gimignano, the historical Monteriggioni, but also authentic artistic masterpieces such as the Duomo di Siena. In the province of Siena there is also Colle Val d'Elsa, also known as "The Crystal City", as it is produced in even 90% of the domestic crystal.

For the desires of those who aspire to spend a few hours at the spa, in the territory of Siena you can go to the spa of Chianciano Terme, Rapolano Terme, Montepulciano, the spas of Bagni Vignoni, Bagni San Filippo and San Casciano dei Bagni, or maybe the free spa Petriolo on the border with the province of Grosseto.

Always keeping in theme of beautiful nature, and ideal places for picnics, hiking and cycling, the Siena province is the area in which they are idyllic places such as Chianti, Val d'Arbia, Val d'Orcia, Val d'Elsa, Crete Senesi, stretches of water such as Lake Chiusi and Lake Montepulciano, mountain reliefs such as Mount Amiata and many other areas that seem painted by an artist's hand on the horizon.

Another excellent idea to make holidays in Siena and surroundings is also the boundless culinary tradition of this area. Just to say, it is precisely in the Sienese countryside wines that are "astral" products such as the great wines of Chianti, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and Brunello di Montalcino, all nectars from to accompany savory first dishes, tasty second and the many confectionery products that Siena also offers the Christmas tradition (Panforte, Ricciarelli, etc.)

If the various reasons listed are already widely enough to make not one, but a dozen holidays in Siena, we should also remember that Siena is the Italian province with more UNESCO World Heritage Sites such as San Gimignano, Val d'Orcia, Pienza and the historic center of Siena itself.

Among the other advantages of spending your holidays in Siena can list the various events that animate the villages and the hills of the territory all year, and here we remember Calici di Stelle, Radda nel bicchiere, Sport Siena Weekend, the Chianti Festival, the countless festivals issues and many other events in the musical, cultural and gastronomic.

At this point, considered the reasons listed above, we think just to understand why so many people wanting to holiday in Tuscany, choose just the province of Siena.
