Palazzo Publico And Museo Civico - Review
The Palazzo Pubblico of Siena (also known as the Palazzo Comunale) was built in the Piazza del Campo between 1297 and 1310 as the new headquarters of the Government of the Nine. The first nucleus, which dates 1284, was expanded and reconstructed until 1310 when the government moved in permanently. The Palazzo Comunale is the headquarters of the modern city’s administration and houses the offices of the mayor, several municipal offices and the staterooms. It contains the Museo Civico that houses numerous masterpieces by local artists, the most noteworthy being Maesta, Guidoriccio da Fogliano at the Siege of Montemassi. The Museum also exhibits important works by Bernardo Rossellino, Domenico di Niccolo, Jacopo della Quercia, Spinello Aretino and Domenico Beccafumi.

Palazzo Publico And Museo Civico, Siena Reviews
We visited in October 2017. Good museum inside and a wonderful view from the top across Sienna. You have to get up a tall winding tower to get there and sometimes this is closed but luckily open when we visited. Well maintained for a building from 1297. 9 Euros to enter but totally worth it.
A bit expensive for a 20 min visit (10,-). But the view is great. The highest point was closed unfortunately, used to be open for the public before. The start of the stairs is very narrow, so don't go if you have any form of claustrophobia!
A very beautyful place with a very unique design. Really worth viewing it.
Such a wonderful place to visit! I highly recommend you check this one out, it's seriously worth your time!
We really enjoyed our visit to the pubblico palace in Siena. It is a nice museum. They had several sections closed off with no explanation of why. But overall it was nice. The building is beautiful. We would have loved to see more displays about daily life in Siena in the middle ages. The tower was closed due to rain. Overall well worth the visit.
