Siena, the perfectly preserved medieval city I’ve come to think of as home in Italy, is hosting a series of great events this summer between 10 July and 2 August, called Siena and Stars. I don’t usually write about events on here, but for this one, I just couldn’t resist.
You can reach the Siena and Stars website by clicking on their logo below but since the webpage is mostly in Italian, I thought I’d do you a favour and let you know what Siena and Stars is all about.
Taking place in Siena’s Piazza del Duomo against the stunning backdrop of Siena’s gothic cathedral, the organizers of Siena and Stars have put together a line up of not-to-be-missed performances of all kinds. From pop, to jazz, to opera, to ballet, to theatre, Siena and Stars has something for all tastes and price ranges. Count on 10 – 60 euros per ticket, depending on the event you’re looking to attend. Not bad!
Siena is a wonderful place to visit no matter what’s going on, but for anyone who is venturing to Tuscany this summer, I’d recommend mixing it up with the locals at one of the Siena and Stars events. It’ll be a taste of Siena and Italy, at their best. Plus, you’ll be visiting this place:
A few event highlights:
July 10 – Marco Mengoni in concert
July 14 – Tango with Miguel Angel Zotto
