Nothing beats Sienna

Tuscany holds a bunch of old-world, characterful and fascinating cities that should be savored with a slow pace of life. Siena is one of them and in its true Tuscan spirit clutches the medieval gems in its every lane and street. Begin with the heart of Siena Piazza del Campo and then head to the red brick city hall the Palazzo Pubblico. It’s hard to remain indifferent because every sight has a story to tell. Other legendary sites worth a visit are the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta, Church of San Domenico and Museum Complex of Santa Maria della Scala. There is nothing better than going up to the Torre del Mangia and enjoying a stunning panoramic view of the city and the countryside.
