History and description
Stadio Artemio Franchi opened on 8 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. Between 2007 and 2013 “Montepaschi Arena” was added to the stadium name as part of a sponsorship deal.
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.
How to get to Stadio Artemio Franchi Siena
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.
