Siena stands as one of Tuscany's most picturesque towns, having been a primary rival to Florence for centuries, each vying for dominance in power, wealth, and prestige. This historical competition is vividly etched into the city's squares and grandiose buildings that form the heart of the city center. The main square, "Il Campo," is the celebrated venue for the renowned Palio horse race, a biannual summer event steeped in tradition and excitement.
In addition to exploring Siena, your day will include a stop in Monteriggioni, a true gem of the region. This small, yet impressive, walled medieval fortress dates back to the 13th century. Perched atop a hill, Monteriggioni is surrounded by the stunning Tuscan countryside, providing a breathtaking backdrop to this historic stronghold.
