Smallest Window in the World, Siena, Italy

See the Smallest Window in the World
There will be no sign, arrows or flashing lights to tell you that this is titled the smallest window in the world, but it exists in Siena’s quaint Piazza di Postierla. Situated on the building to the right of the square there will be a teeny, tiny shingled window right next to it’s duplicate big brother.

If I hadn’t been touring Northern Italy with an expert guide from the Tuscan Montestigliano Estate, I would have surely missed it.

Though I wouldn’t have traveled all the way to this city solely to gawk at this petite finestra, it gives me great satisfaction knowing that I have seen something special that most of the world hasn’t and besides… it’s really cute.

      Ha, Ha! I thought by putting the arrow next to it people would see it better. I should have circled it in red 🙂

    LOL. I, too, was looking at the main window in this photo and thinking “This is a normal window! The heck?!”

    Sienna was one of my favorite parts of visiting Tuscany. Are you still there?!? I have pizza recommendations!

      I wish I was still there! But, I’m home in California for a few days before heading off to Greece on Tuesday.

  7. That is so awesomely cool. I wish I had known about it when I was in Siena. Next time!
