Solo women travellers, Siena is the ideal city for you!
Do-it-yourself tourist? No problem!
The city of the Palio is very open and hosts a large number of young people from all over Italy, thanks to the presence of the University of Siena. It is also a cosmopolitan city, not just because of the thousands of visitors from all parts of the world who come here every year, but also due to the presence of the Siena University for Foreigners. In 2017, Siena was ranked 11th for quality of life in a survey by “Il Sole 24 Ore“, scoring particularly highly for justice and security. In 2013, it was near the bottom of a scale based on the number of crimes committed in the various Italian provincial capitals. Moreover, since that time, the number of reported crimes in Siena has continued to decrease every year, including crimes involving tourists, such as car theft and mugging. Siena is therefore a very safe city, suitable for all types of travellers, including solo women.
Enjoy the sweet taste of freedom
Travelling alone offers many advantages, especially if you don’t have to worry about security. For example, you can visit all the sights that appeal to you and go to all the nightspots you like, without having to defer to anyone else. You can also dress in a practical, comfortable way, without thinking about pleasing others. Spending time alone can also help you rediscover yourself and get things into perspective. In addition, you meet new people every day, when you’re asking for directions or ordering a meal. They are often a source of kindness and wonderful stories, making your solo journey a very memorable experience. If there are times when you feel rather alone, you can rely on the kind attention of the staff at the Hotel Italia and the excellent services on offer.
