I loved the frescoes and the whole experience in Siena. One thing I want to make sure all visitors know is that there are escalators leading from the mall across from the train station into Siena. We didn't realize this and instead walked the whole way (!) which took about 1/2 hour.

Excellent medieval and Renaissance city, beautiful and very well maintained, with excellent signage. A bit expensive, especially close to the central square.

The Palazzo was easy to find. The voucher was easy to exchange for the entry ticket. The staff spoke some English and was very helpful.
