Much more interesting than using the highway is to go to Siena via the secondary roads (S. Caterina, Vallerona, Stribugliano, Cinigiano), drive up to Sasso d’Ombrone, and only there take the N223 direction Siena. Even more beautiful is the route via Porrona, Sant Angelo and Montalcino (a must for wine lovers where the famous Brunello is made) then go to Siena on the Cassia (N2). Leave your car at one of the car parks just outside the centre, preferably the Il Campo car park near the Porta dei Tufi.
Cars are not permitted in the magnificent centre of Siena and this allows you to calmly stroll through the streets. During the summer, the narrow streets are protected from the sun thanks to the high historical houses and palace. Because Siena is built on a hill with its streets in a specific direction, you can always profit from a cool breeze.
When leaving the city, you will follow the sign « Autostrada ». At the bottom of the city hill you follow direction « Tangenziale » and you will look for the sign Grosseto (to the left). It will take you about an hour and a half to reach Murci by the N 223 up to Roselle, and then take the connection road to N 322 and arrive in Murci via the road through Scansano.
