The romantic medieval town of Siena in Tuscany is a favorite for couples and families alike. This proud city was an independent city-state during the Middle Ages and has since kept many of its unique traditions and architecture. The allure and elegance of Siena will captivate you as you explore the winding streets.
The most famous attraction in Siena is the Palio Horse Race, run in the large palazzo The Campo of Siena in July and August. Each horse represents a contrade, or district, of Siena. Locals are exceedingly loyal to their contrade and the day of the races is a colorful festival with much celebration. Besides the race, tourists enjoy climbing the Torre del Mangia, the bell tower overlooking the Campo. Even beyond that, palaces and palazzos are aplenty in Siena.
