Sunset works best here although it is possible to shoot at sunrise. Because of its popularity there might be photo workshop groups there so it pays to arrive a bit earlier. There is enough room to accommodate 15+ photographers but parking area is limited.
This spot is one of the most photographed places in Tuscany. It can get quite busy with groups, especially in spring when there are many photo workshops. Luckily there is more than just one spot - walk around olive grove to find an unobstructed view.

) has an amazing line of cypress trees leading from the main road to the farmhouse. This view from distance gives you a nice perspective with a telephoto lens. You will need at least 200mm to zoom in on the farmhouse and get a compressed view with rolling hills in the back. This shot works best in the morning with backlit scene. Mists are a bonus.
The Siena Cathedral (Duomo di Siena) is well worth a visit. Its interior is stunning, rich in details, grandeur and colours. Photography inside is allowed, but no flash or tripods. You can use wide angle and telephoto for capturing details. Most of the time you will be shooting with ISO 1600 and above.
