Recognized as UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1990, this city is a must see when visiting Tuscany. Step back in time and let your breath be taken away. Take pictures of this stunning city and savour some of the best Italian ice-cream.

SECOND STOP - SIENA

Located in the heart of Tuscany, Siena is known to be one of Italy’s best preserved Medieval cities. During the Middle Ages it was one of the wealthiest independent states, after which it has experienced a few hundred years of poverty after its defeat by Florence in 1555. Being the home of one of the oldest universities of Europe, Siena has a vibrant, bustling atmosphere.

This completely walled Medieval town was built in the 13th century by the lords of Siena to control the Cassia Road, a major road that still runs just outside Monteriggioni.
