  Siena

Siena was my absolute favourite, when touring Tuscany. It is the medieval city par excellence, and I liked it so much better than Florence, because it is so much more intimate and what I found more "unique".

The heart of Siena is the Campo, a the shell-shaped square where twice a year you can watch the famous Palio (a horse race).

The townhall (also on the Campo) and the magnificent Cathedral are just two more highlights of this wonderful town!

Directions: Tuscany
