If you're a shopaholic, Siena has plenty of shops to keep you entertained. If you are after clothing, check out the fancy boutiques on Bianchi di Sopra and on Via di Citta. There are tempting food shops at every turn, filled with colourful pasta, biscuits & other sweet treats, cheeses and cured meats. On top of this they all sell a large selection of Tuscan wines, that are affordable and exceptional when used to cook with. One particularly interesting shop is Antica Drogheria Manganelli (at Via di Citta 71-73). They have been making their tasty panforte since 1879. Panforte is the trademark dish in the area, but it has a spicy and bitter taste to it.

If you want to go out and buy stuff at a market, if you happen by on a Wednesday you can check out the big, lively market held in front of the Fortezza. The market sells everything from clothing to food to junk - a great place for a browse or to stock up on fresh produce if you are self catering. It's basically a swapmeet with more variety. There is also an antique market which is held in Piazza del Mercato on the 3rd Sunday of every month.
