You'll spot posters for city events at Piazza Matteotti, and the Siena supplement of La Nazione newspaper has details of the day's concerts and films. You can catch live bands at L'Officina bar, Piazza del Sale 3a, and at the disco-bar Al Cambio , Via di Pantaneto 48, but otherwise your only chances are at the low-key Siena Jazz in the last week of July and the gigs organized for the PDS-Communist Party Festa dell'Unit?throughout the summer.

Siena has prestigious classical concerts throughout the year. The Accademia Chigiana is the driving force, staging the Estate Musicale Chigiana cycle all summer, and the Settimana Musicale Senese in late July, often featuring a major opera production. Venues vary from the duomo and Sant'Agostino to out-of-town locations such as the atmospheric ruined abbey of San Galgano. Tickets start at 7.75, bookable through the tourist office or from mid-July onwards in person at the Accademia Chigiana, Via di Citt?89 (daily 3-7pm; tel 0577.46.152, ).
