What to do and see in Tuscany



Siena is the medieval city par excellence. Its palaces, its squares and its Duomo are equal to those of Florence. Apart from seeing the Piazza del Campo and the Duomo, you must check out the streets around these two places. Pay special attention if you coincide with the Palio (see special section "The Palio in Siena" on Practical Information). Download Siena map
