Although the name of this town suggests a close relation to Siena, Torrita di Siena is in fact 55 km from its namesake.
Its location in southwestern Tuscany, makes Torrita di Siena a good base if you are planning day trips to towns such as Montepulciano (10 km), Pienza (15 km) and Cortona (30 km). But Perugia – the so-called treasure of Umbria – is also within reach at just 65 km away. Torrita di Siena is well worth spending time exploring. With a population of 7,000, the town is not all that small and has a number of interesting sights – the medieval ruins of the town walls and many churches especially the Roman Sante Fiora e Lucilla, which dates back to the 13th century, to mention but a few.
