For centuries Siena was the antagonist of choice for Florence.
A landmark city and World Heritage site, which comes to life in July and August during the famous Palio horserace. But the treasures and beauty preserved in this unique city are worth a trip all year round.
The perfection of the irregular Piazza del Campo dominated by the Torre del Mangia, the beautiful facade of the cathedral, the frescoes of the Palazzo Comunale by Simone Martini and Ambrogio Lorenzetti, and the magnificent Majesty by Duccio, preserved in the cathedral’s museum. A visit to Siena can easily be added onto one of our many itineraries.
