Bar Key Largo

Coffee culture is part of Italian life. With coffee bars scattered across the city, you will never be far from an top-notch cappuccino. Situated Curva di San Martino, this dishevelled bar overlooking the piazza is always buzzing with locals; just take care not to bang your head on your way up the rickety stairwell.

Caffè Le Logge

With a beautiful vintage setting decked out the 1920s furniture, this bar is one to settle in for the evening. With friendly staff a balcony area and the occasional evening of live jazz, it’s hard to beat this spot when it comes to atmosphere.

Bar Pasticceria Nannini

A visit to Siena would not be complete without a trip to the Nannini’s. Choose from a selection of traditional Sienese delicacies to enjoy in elegant surrounds and don’t forget to buy some panforte and cantuccini biscuits to take home.

Cacio e Pere

5PM is aperitivo hour . Most bars offer an open buffet of cold meats, cheese, mini-sandwiches, fresh pasta and grilled vegetables to accompany your €3-5 beverage, so time it right and there will be no need for dinner. For those looking for aperitivi musicali, this is the place to head. With live musicians and a friendly buzz on any given day, you won’t be the first to pop in for an aperitivo and stay until the early hours.

La Favorita

For those looking for a more extensive array of aperitivo dishes in a more refined setting, head to La Favorita. Follow the locals in stacking your plastic plates high and don’t pass on the cocktails. Even the biggest Campari lovers may want to swap Italy’s signature red drink for a delicious non-alcoholic alternative at aperitivo time.

Bella Vista Social Pub

Come nightfall, people spill out of the bars and into streets with the Piazza del Campo transforming itself into a platform for performers and live music. The Sienese prefer the tradition of an evening stroll (or passeggiata) which typically involves ambling from bar to bar – “clubbing” is not something inscribed into the culture. However, this Cuban inspired nightclub offers an array of rum-based cocktails and a rare chance for a boogie in a truly retro interior.
