Stadio Artemio Franchi – Montepaschi Arena
Club: AC Siena | Opening: 1938 | Capacity: 15,373
History and description
Stadio Artemio Franchi opened on the 8th of December 1938 with a friendly match between Siena and Empoli.
The stadium was initially simply called Stadio Comunale, and only received its current name in 1986. The addition Montepaschi Arena was added in 2007.
The stadium received various renovations over the years, most significantly in the mid-2000s after the club promoted to the Serie A and several new stands had to be built to comply with Serie A standards.
Stadio Artemio Franchi lies on the edge of Siena’s historic centre, right next to the Basilica di San Domenico. It is just a 5-minute walk from the central square Piazza del Campo or the Duomo.
Siena’s train station is located slightly further away outside the centre. The walk should still take no more than half an hour, or take one of the many buses that go into the centre. Most buses will drop you off right by the stadium.
Address: Viale dei Mille 3, 53100 Siena
