Basilica di San Domenico | Sienna, Italy

Who doesn’t think of Tuscany when they hear of hills and vineyards? The interesting thing is that it is not just the wineries that are built on the hills – the cities take advantage of the terrain. Sienna is one of them – you could walk through the old town and enjoy the view of the sights from a distance.

Piazza Il Campo At Sunrise | Sienna, Italy

Piazza Il Campo At Sunrise | Sienna, Italy

Piazza Il Campo is the beating heart of this city, especially during the annual horse racing “Palio di Siena” which we witnessed. They take place exactly there, under the Torre del Mangia (The Tower above) and the Palazzo Publico (The building on the side). It was the first city that I saw the city square that was built in the shape of an amphitheatre – the sign of Palio’s importance for Sienna’s communities.
