Siena, one of the most exquisite and well-preserved medieval towns in Tuscany, boasts a uniquely distinctive UNESCO-listed historic center enclosed by amazing ramparts built between the 14th and 16th centuries. Cobblestone streets, quaint squares, and marvelous artwork are everywhere in Siena, along with centuries-old traditions that live on and thrive. One of these is the Palio di Siena, an exciting horse race held every year in the town’s lovely Piazza del Campo.
