Siena (Tuscany) is one of the most beautiful medieval towns in Italy, and undoubtedly one of the most famous ones. Be sure it is very touristy, but unlike other places I have visited in Italy, here it somehow doesn’t feel that annoying. It may be because all the tourists are scattered wandering through the cute narrow streets, but I think it’s mainly down to the fact that the town breathes out this special, charming medieval atmosphere and all of a sudden you find yourself in another century.
Photos taken with my old crappy analog. I love what it does to pictures, how different they are to digital. And I believe they are flattering to Siena. Imperfectly perfect.
Twice a year a famous horse race, the Palio, is held on this square ‘Piazza del Campo‘.
