I will be in Siena next month for a couple of weeks. Is there any gaming life in the town? I remember when I was last there (2003), there was a shop near the Cathedral. Is that still there? If not, are there others? Ranging farther afield, is there anything of wargaming interest in Firenze?

Any help will be greatly appreciated! Although I will be there to study Italian, I am still a gamer at heart!

The whole of Siena is interesting regardless of wargaming connections.
Take a trip to Monteriggioni, one of the few walled small towns with no built up areas outside its walls, you can see it from the train to Firenze, though I think you'd need to drive to visit.
Theres just tons of things everywhere you look, enjoy your stay.

Oh, I know there are tons of things to do in Siena, that's why I'm going there!

I'm just worried that after a few weeks I'll get homesick for the sight of little lead figures that need to be painted, like the ones that surround me at home!
