I took the bus from Pienza at 9 this morning and arrived in Siena a little after 10. I got to my B&B, dropped my bags, and tried to sleep for a bit but I was just too excited! I grabbed my cameras and some lunch, went to the Campo and ate. Great people watching! The sun was out, another beautiful day. I then went to the Duomo and bought an OPA pass to the Duomo, the Museum, Baptistry, and the facciatone, the unfinished portion of the Duomo that gives an amazing view of the city. I took a panorama from the top, see below! I have the Duomo and Baptistry to do tomorrow but I am sure it will be busy! After that I will I will climb the Torre del Mangia for another great view!

The first photo below is the beautiful Duomo and the second is the view from my B&B, that’s the Saint Dominico Catherine Basilica that I will visit tomorrow morning. Being Italy, there are a lot if churches, most with gorgeous art works! I spent a half hour with Duccio”s masterpiece Maestà this afternoon, people rushed in and out of the room with this spectacular altarpiece without even giving it a glance.

Oh…. And for those who asked; 2393 photos so far…. Not including iPhone photos 🙂
