Organise your visit

Santa Maria della Scala offers a broad range of tours linked to the historical, architectural, artistic and functional complexity of the building and the works of art it contains. There are tours focusing on its astonishing architectural stratification and on the evolution of its functional and welfare areas, others exploring the hospital's artistic history and such monumental masterpieces as Jacopo della Quercia's Fonte Gaia fountain, and yet others devoted to the National Archaeological Museum inside the former hospital. All tours are accompanied by video installations.
Free audioguides are also available.

How to get there:

Santa Maria della Scala is situated in the heart of the city, across the square from the Cathedral. In fact it occupies the entire side of the hill facing the Cathedral from the top right down to the slopes at the bottom, its massive rear façde dominating the valley below.
The historical city centre being closed to private vehicular traffic, the museum cannot be reached by car.

The closest car parks are situated close to the city walls; the most convenient car parks being Il Campo, Duomo and Santa Caterina (linked to the Cathedral hill via an escalator).

GETTING THERE BY CAR:

from the north: A1 motorway, "Firenze Impruneta" exit; Florence-Siena dual carriageway
from the south: A1 motorway, "Valdichiana" exit; Bettolle-Siena dual carriageway

TAXI SERVICE:

Radiotaxi service 24h/7
tel: (+39) 0577 49222 www.taxisiena.it

GETTING THERE BY PLANE:

Train and bus links from Florence, Pisa, Rome, Perugia and Bologna airports.

GETTING THERE BY TRAIN:

Siena railway station is in Piazza Carlo Rosselli, roughly 2 km from the historical city centre. The centre may be reached by city bus or taxi.
If you prefer to walk, you can either take the Stazione-Antiporto escalator then walk along Viale Vittorio Emanuele II, Via Camollia, Via dei Montanini; or, if you wish to avoid using the escalator, simply walk along Viale Mazzini, Via Garibaldi and then Via dei Montanini.
