Siena is a medievel little town 1,5 hours by train from florance is has a small center witch is very nice there is also a big church. I visited this church and it was marvelous they had the most increddible marble floor you have ever seen, with the hole story of the bible told by these big tiles that are laid in the floor. These tiles where perfectly detaild so absolutly wonderfull. As i bought a combined ticket for a decend price i went to visit also the crypt. That is a section that they discoverd about 10 years ago by doing renovation on the church. It's a small room that they have foun to have old frescoes on the walls not that very interesting. The museum that was across from the church had a little surprise on the top floor there was this place where you can go outside and walk up a tiny staircase and see all across sienna and also because it was good weather a good deal of the surrounding area. A friend of mine siad that tuscany is the best part of italy i think she is right. It was a stunning view from up there.
also a very nice place to be was piazzo del campo. That is where the famous horse races are held each year. But when the sun is out and a lot of people are in the piazza its a very nice place to be.
