I was very fortunate to be able to participate in a school excursion to the Banca Monti dei Paschi di Siena , the world's oldest bank still in operation, founded in 1472. The bank is located at the Piazza Salimbeni right in the middle of the historical center of Siena. The place is full of interesting history, precious art and... More

The bank was the oldest bank in the region as Siena was a commercial banking region. One should definitely go see it as it a central historic sight.

World's oldest bank and still in operation. I believe our tour guide said since the 1400's....WOW. It's free to visit but unfortunately it was closed when we were there. The piazza it is in is so Gothic and lovely.

While wandering around Siena we came across a lovely little square with some very nice buildings and a great statue of a gentleman who I guess was involved in banking. Here we had the oldest bank in the world which has been operating continuously since 1472. They are developing the bank museum here and at the moment entry is free.... More

This is currently free to visit and the guide is very informative. Starting in the 60's a famous Siena architect remodelled the 3 buildings to join them together for use by the bank. This finished in the early 80's with a beautiful result of the featuring of the old by contrasting with the new. The full art collection is yet... More
