Siena is a colorful, small, chilled, medieval city of tuscany. It is surrounded by beautiful hills where you can enjoy a tuscan road trip and relax between vineyards.
Twice a year, in summertime, the families of the city divide into 17 contrade, who compete among each other in the famous Palio di siena, a passionate horse race in the heart of the city in Piazza del Campo.
Each Contrada has its own unique emblem and colors and represents an area of the city. As one walks through the streets of Siena it is easy to know in which Contrada you currently are in by observing the flags displayed along the street.
If you want to feel the medieval familiar spirit of a city look no more, Siena is the place to be.
