What travelers say:

It is exactly the same as imagined. The medieval old town has a sense of vicissitudes. The main color of the building is yellow. The color of the main church is very different. It is very convenient to come from Florence.

Additional Information

Introduction

Siena is located in the southern Tuscany region, about 50 kilometers south of Florence, and was built at the confluence of three hills of the Chianti hills between Arcia and the Arce river valley. Founded in 29 BC, historically a center of trade, finance and art, it is now the capital of the province of Siena. Siena's urban buildings are dense and have a high degree of architectural unity. The reddish-toned bricks harmonize with the surrounding dark blue-gray hills. In addition to the elements of the Romanesque and Renaissance styles, the Italian Gothic style, which was influenced by the East during the Crusades and was expressed in the form of narrow arcades, played an important role. The numerous Gothic fountains, mostly built in the 13th century, add to Siena's splendor and harmony. Siena is a unique medieval city that retains its character and character. It really influenced medieval art, architecture and urban planning, not only in Italy but most of Europe. Siena's urban architecture is in harmony with the overall effect it creates with the surrounding cultural landscape. If Florence is the cradle of the Renaissance, then Siena itself is a work of art. Surrounded by the beautiful Tuscan countryside, this medieval ancient city still maintains its vigorous vitality after thousands of years of baptism, which naturally embodies the infinite love of Siena people for their hometown. Since the 12th century, the Siena people have clinging to a Gothic dream, and as a result, have entered into an enduring rivalry with Florence in city building.
