Lama is near a diverse collection of Siena’s well-known sights. Two destinations that should be at the top of every visitor’s to-do list is the fascinating Abbazia di San Galgano and the ever-popular Castello Banfi. Also, well worth the effort are the Tenuta Greppo Franco Biondi Santi and the Abbazia di Sant'Antimo.
There are some interesting museums, exhibits and venues in and around Lama. Spend part of the day browsing the exhibits at Pinacoteca Nazionale, the National Museum of Archaeology and the Siena Museo Civico. For a great night out, pick up some tickets to the Teatro dei Rozzi and the Teatro dei Rinnovati, one of the region’s best-loved performing arts venues.
There are a number of natural gifts here as well, so make sure you enjoy the chance to get outdoors. On a sunny day, visit the Orto Botanico dell'Università di Siena, one of the places where locals come to breathe in the fresh air.
A number of Siena’s attractions are in the Lama area, such as the Piazza del Campo, San Martino and Enoteca Italiana. History lovers will enjoy spending a few hours at the Torre del Mangia, the Basilica di Santa Maria dei Servi and Porta Tufi. Those interested in the world's various faiths will enjoy the serene atmosphere at the Duomo di Siena and the San Cristoforo Church.
If you have a passion for sports, you might enjoy seeing local heroes, the A.C. Siena, take to the field at Stadio Artemio Franchi - Montepaschi Arena. On game days follow the sea of black and white, to the stadium, then after the final whistle blows, join local soccer lovers at a nearby pub, bar or cafe for a post-game drink.
When you’re ready to wind down after a day spent exploring the many charms of Lama, check in to one of the many local bed-and-breakfast, hotel and short-stay apartment options. If you’re looking for a warm welcome and a good nights sleep check out the amenities at the Hotel Athena, the NH Excelsior, and the Hotel Chiusarelli.
