Siena is likely Italy's loveliest medieval city, and a trip worth making even if you are in Tuscany for just a few days. Siena's heart is its central piazza known as Il Campo, known worldwide for the famous Palio run here, a horse race run around the piazza two times every summer. Movie audiences worldwide can see Siena and the Palio in the James Bond movie, Quantum of Solace.
Siena is said to have been founded by Senius, son of Remus, one of the two legendary founders of Rome thus Siena's emblem is the she-wolf who suckled Remus and Romulus - you'll find many statues throughout the city. The city sits over three hills with its heart the huge piazza del Campo, where the Roman forum used to be. Rebuilt during the rule of the Council of Nine, a quasi-democratic group from 1287 to 1355, the nine sections of the fan-like brick pavement of the piazza represent the council and symbolizes the Madonna's cloak which shelters Siena.
The Campo is dominated by the red Palazzo Pubblico and its tower, Torre del Mangia. Along with the Duomo of Siena, the Palazzo Pubblico was also built during the same period of rule by the Council of Nine. The civic palace, built between 1297 and 1310, still houses the city's municipal offices much like Palazzo Vecchio in Florence. Its internal courtyard has entrances to the Torre del Mangia and to the Civic Museum. If you feel energetic, a climb up the over 500 steps will reward you with a wonderful view of Siena and its surroundings. The Museum, on the other hand, offers some of the greatest of Sienese paintings. The Sala del Concistoro houses one of Domenico Beccafumi's best works, ceiling frescoes of allegories on the virtues of Siena's medieval government. But it is the Sala del Mappamondo and the Sale della Pace that hold the palaces's highlights: Simone Martini's huge Maestà and Equestrian Portrait of Guidoriccio da Fogliano and Ambrogio Lorenzetti's Allegories of Good and Bad Government, once considered the most important.

Europe is self-driving, Italy is my focus, and every ancient town and rural scenery in the Tuscany region is even more important.
Remember that when I first knew this place, I was amazed at the well-preserved old buildings, which, under the idyllic idyllic setting, made me more irresistible.
So I took Tuscany Italy as the most important stop on the trip. Suffering from the conditions at the time, Tuscany can only be a dream for me. I am looking forward to going there, but it can only be a promise in my heart.
Although it is summer, Tuscany is not always sunny, and the weather is mostly cloudy. When the clouds covered the sky, the blue of Tuscany gave me more unexpected surprises.
The typical Siena yellow on the building, when combined with the mysterious blue of the sky, every photo taken is beautiful, but I will record every little surprise I see in my eyes. Down, don't pay attention to the level of shooting, as long as I enter the scene in the lens I love, I am not willing to easily delete those photos that seem to be poorly framed.
Love House and Uganda may just say that I am now.

For a more enjoyable stroll around Siena, we stayed here for a little more time. I wanted to come to the movie "Under the Tuscan Sun" and gave me too many associations, so I also bought postcards here according to the plot in the movie, sitting at the small pool in the shell square and writing for myself. postcard. Trying to use these small moves to record that I have been here.
[Italy] Siena is a place where I have to punch in my trip to Italy. When I arrived there, it was close to the afternoon. I originally wanted to live in the old town, but because of the tourist season, the hotels in the city were full and I had to find a star hotel outside the old city.
couldnt help but feel the excitement of the heart. After a short break, KF drove to the old city. I was eager to see the old town in this dream, because this is also a Tuscany region. A city with a historical significance and a heavy weight.

Perhaps it is a wonderful experience to walk in the square.

The construction process spanned more than a century and was built by the efforts of countless Italian artists.
