Siena makes you immediately think to the ruby color of Chianti wine and to the landscapes punctuated by rows of vineyards, typical of this part of Tuscany.
In addition to the historical wine cellars, a must for those who want to taste the best Sienese products, there are many places where to go drinking, recommended especially after a day spent doing sightseeing: visiting churches, admiring monuments, discovering museums and be fascinated by the history of the town of Palio.
After suggesting where to have an aperitif in Siena, we picked 5 cocktail bars and pubs to spend the evening, these venues are all within walking distance from our hotel and are the most popular among Sienese people.
