Time-traveling in Siena

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‘.
