|2013 program of Christmas market and wine tasting in Siena|
Dreading the Christmas shopping? Not sure where to start?
Siena's artisan and foodie market on Piazza del Campo is a fabulous alternative to jammed up and overheated shopping malls (read the 2012 Christmas shopping post for more information on the market's Renaissance vibe).
Once you've got the gifts join the wine tasting at the Santa Maria della Scala museum (from 5.30 pm) or visit restaurant Le Logge's wine and music bar Un Tubo for a culinary treat. On Saturday night, the club hosts a buffet dinner and wine tasting with Montalcino's prime vineyard Poggio di Sotto. The organically run estate belongs to the best rated Brunello producers (25€ only on booking
