Among all cities we have visited in Italy this autumn, Siena is the loveliest, in my opinion. I know, Florence is a jewel with lot of art and history, but energy and vibrations in Siena are special. This medieval city, in the central part of Tuscany, has captured my heart.
One of main attractions of the city is the famous Palio, a horse race around the Piazza del Campo two times every summer.(on 2 July and 16 August.). Even if you are not in town in that period, all stories and sights will start with Palio.
Every contrada has its own fountain- baptismal font.
The marble mosaic floor of the cathedral.
