Picturesque Siena is one of the most beautiful cities in Italy. It is located in the blessed land of Tuscany – a unique gastronomic region, where many delicacies of Italian cuisine and dozens of varieties of excellent wine come from. Siena is surrounded by fertile landscapes, which for their exclusivity have been taken under UNESCO protection.
The streets, squares, palazzi and ancient temples of the city are centuries–old history, frozen in stone. Since the Middle Ages, Palio horse races have been held in Siena. Until now, they follow a ritual that was established several centuries ago. This event annually attracts a huge number of tourists to the city, who fill the entire free space of the Piazza del Campo.
An excursion to Siena is included in most tourist routes that carry “package travelers”. Independent tourists are also happy to come to this amazing island of the Middle Ages, which has preserved its unique flavor.
