Chiusdino is a great place to base yourself in Siena as a large number of the area’s star attractions are close. The Abbazia di San Galgano and the Cathedral of Massa Marittima are amongst the many popular places to discover here. And if your schedule allows, be sure to visit the Chiesa e Convento di San Niccolo del Carmine and Porta Tufi.
Chiusdino offers some interesting museums, exhibits and show venues within easy reach that make great places to visit. Stroll around and savor the quiet atmosphere of Pinacoteca Nazionale, the National Museum of Archaeology and the Siena Museo Civico. To experience Siena’s vibrant arts scene, book a show at one of the popular performance venues such as the Teatro dei Rozzi and the Teatro dei Rinnovati.
There are many natural gifts here as well, so make sure you enjoy the chance to get outdoors. When Mother Nature beckons, visit the Orto Botanico dell'Università di Siena, where locals come to spend time outdoors.
While you are here, head to some of the local sights such as the Piazza del Campo, San Martino and Enoteca Italiana. These spots are a magnet for locals and tourists alike.

If you have a passion for sports, you’ll enjoy seeing Chiusdino favorites, the A.C. Siena, doing battle at Stadio Artemio Franchi - Montepaschi Arena. On weekends the stadium is filled with black and white, as soccer fans flock together to get behind their home-grown heroes.
After a day exploring the delights of Chiusdino, stay the night at one of the area’s hotels or serviced apartments. Make reservations for the Hotel Athena, the NH Excelsior, or the Hotel Chiusarelli.
