Last summer, and thanks to an invitation I got from Ray and Anna Rita of Tuscan Enterprises, villa rentals and purveyors of wonderful wine, olive oil, and Cinta Senese ham products, I went to Tuscany.
One day I buzzed off in my small but perfectly formed Fiat 500 rental car to Siena – home to the famous Palio horse race and to, like so many of Italy’s cities, towns and villages, lots of wonderful unspoilt buildings. Needless to say I took my trusty camera with me plus a couple of lenses.
30 35 photos of Siena, Italy via a Flickr slideshow, which you can view full screen if that is your wont.
Would I recommend a visit to Siena in Tuscany? Definitely. It’s a lovely place which is bursting with character.
Stop reading, start speaking
Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.
Here are the photos:
A tip – if you do go and want to visit the cathedral, museum, tower and crypt – get the good value all in one ticket. You can buy it from a kiosk which lies to the right of the cathedral.
Lovely place and I’d love to go back too.
