Siena’s beauty can be seen from afar, drawing travelers in.  In a town famous for its cuisine, art, history, and culture, simply wandering the streets and breathing in the air can feel like an adventure.

Over the years, Siena has justifiably been crowned by tourists around the world as the quintessential Tuscan town, and, upon entering this charming city, it becomes immediately apparent why tourists to flock this spot year after year.  

It can be hard to imagine that the picturesque Piazza del Campo, with it’s sidewalk cafe’s and sloping pavement, hosts a medieval horse race twice a year.  This is simply one example of how this town is able to maintain the traditions and history that make it such a joy to visit.  The city is alive with a palpable energy that remains with the visitor long after they leave.
