Did you know that in the ancient times, there was only one city that competed against Florence for power, wealth and artistic beauties ?

Yes, and the city is Siena

You’ll discover Piazza del Campo, the main central square where the famous Palio horse race takes place every year. You will also discover the quieter backstreets and  the contrade, the 17 city districts which date back to the Middle Ages and compete every year in the two days of the Palio. The Palio horse race tradition has been firing Siennese passions since 1644!

Do not forget to add the beauties of Siena to your travel itinerary!
