Things to know about Siena
Among the places to visit in Tuscany you cannot miss Siena. Founded in Roman times, Siena has increased its authority during the Middle Ages, becoming a prosperous republic that for centuries has contended with Florence the domination of Tuscany. For its precious historical and artistic treasures, the historic centre of Siena was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1982.
There are many places of touristic interest in Siena, such as the imposing Cathedral, one of the most interesting Gothic buildings in Italy, famous for its impressive façade built with polychrome marble and its richly decorated interior. Among the best attractions of Siena, then, must be certainly counted Piazza del Campo, the main square of the city, characterized by its shell-shape.
Siena is a city rich in culinary traditions that enhance the unique flavors of Tuscan cuisine, as well as being famous throughout the world for its characteristic Palio, a horse race that takes place through the various districts in which the city is divided.
