Siena Favorites?

What are some Siena favorites that are not to be missed, other than the Duomo and Piazza del Campo? Favorite restaurants?

The civic museum at the bottom of the campo. It's fabulous.

If you want to visit the cathedral go early. The lines were enormous the last time I was there. Siena was a sleepy town for my first visit and I'm glad I saw it then.

Springing for a drink or coffee at a sit outside table on the campo and soaking it in.

The mural of the Allegory of Good and Bad Government.

Our two favorite restaurants in Siena are Da Divo and Le Logge. Da Divo is down the street from the duomo's baptistry. The building is part of an old Etruscan cave. Very good food in unique and historic surroundings. Le Logge is a block from Il Campo.

Sottoriva is a medieval arcade running parallel with the river and houses a number of simple eateries, popular with the natives.
Good spot for lunch.
