New Year 2019 in Siena
A fabulous New Year at a hotel in the Siena Inns group
At New Year, the Hotel Garden, Hotel Italia, Relais degli Angeli and Villa Agostoli are all ready to help you celebrate the coming of the new year in style. The Relais degli Angeli is close to the Piazza del Campo or, but just outside the traffic-free zone, the Hotel Italia is in a strategic position for visiting the city. If you’d like to spend New Year surrounded by the beauty of the Sienese hills, Villa Agostoli offers you the option of booking a completely independent apartment or small villa. On the other hand, if you want to enjoy New Year’s Eve to the full, the Hotel Garden is just a few minutes’ drive from the city, and offers excellent hospitality and a delightful and stylish New Year’s Eve dinner to welcome the new year. You can wait for midnight to arrive while enjoying live music, cabaret shows and DJ sets. Dancing till dawn in a lovely atmosphere is the way to start the new year in style.
New Year’s Eve in Piazza del Campo
Piazza del Campo provides the perfect setting for a musical welcome to the coming year. The end of year concert always features various well-known bands; in recent years, the party has rocked to the music of Cristina Ferri, the Brass Band, Giacomo Muzzi and Giacomo Franchi, among others. The start of 2018 was celebrated with Siena World and Soul Beat, an extraordinary musical marathon lasting from 10 at night to 5 in the morning. The Florentine group Bandabardò took to the stage, along with other performers who filled the air of Siena with jazz, folk and blues. So it’s a huge and popular party, only interrupted by the traditional midnight countdown. The New Year’s Eve 2019 celebrations in Piazza del Campo are yet to be unveiled, but promise to be even more joyful and entertaining: the perfect choice for those who want to have fun in a magical setting but without too much expense.
A New Year for all tastes and all ages
New Year’s Eve in Siena is a party for everyone: from the afternoon onward, the city centre is filled with workshops and games for children and families, all organised by local cooperatives. For an alternative December 31, you might like to take part in some outdoor exercise. This is the idea behind such events as Siena Urban Running and Siena Francigena Kids: two ways to enjoy some city walks, and to explore some beautiful corners and spectacular sights around Siena. You could also spend December 31 visiting some of Siena’s museums, such as the Duomo, the Torre del Mangia, the Santa Maria della Scala complex and the Civic Museum: a wonderful heritage of art with which to see out the year. Also in the afternoon, the streets of the old centre begin to come alive as the city’s bars and taverns set up tables offering classic street food. In short, there are plenty of interesting initiatives.
