Day trip to Siena. Jan 26, 2017
Siena is a well preserved Medieval town located 30 miles south of Florence. It is set on three hills.

One of the main area in this town is piazza del Campo; a large scallop shaped square. It is divided in 9 segments representing the Concil of the Nine that ruled Medieval Siena. In piazza del Campo a historical bareback horse race called “Palio” is held twice every year (on 2th july and 16th august). One of the palaces surrounding the square is Palazzo Pubblico; you can visit it inside. There you can see several frescoed rooms. This palace is used as town hall.

I visited the Palazzo Pubblico and the Ospedale della Scala (an ancient hospital that didn' t impress me at all. It is only my opinion). I didn' t visit the cathedral. They say its interior is wonderful. I have to go back to Siena quite soon.
