Siena, located in the heart of Tuscany and surrounded by hills, is one of the most beautiful medieval cities in Italy. The fulcrum of the city is the famous Piazza del Campo, with its particular shell shape, where the famous Palio is held, one of the most important events for all Sienese people.
The site consists of a monumental stone window that rises on the hill framing the landscape in a simple and elegant way. The most suggestive moment to go to this place is the sunset time and in particular during the last ray on the evening of the summer solstice.
The spas of Siena are among the most beautiful and famous in Tuscany and there gush out hot and carbonic-sulphurous waters, rich in calcium, bicarbonate and magnesium. They are indicated for the treatment of numerous pathologies including pathologies of the urinary, gynecological, respiratory or skin systems.
Tuscany is known above all for its famous red wines: Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano have made Tuscany one of the symbolic regions of Italian enology.
The Sienese cuisine offers typical Tuscan dishes (such as ribollita, arista, beans all’uccelletto) enriched with garlic and aromatic herbs such as tarragon and rosemary. Among the cured meats, the place of honor certainly goes to products made with Cinta Senese meat. The Siena area is also known for the quality and flavor of its cheeses.
