The province of Siena is located in the northern Italian region of Tuscany. The capital city of the province, also called Siena, is known around the world for its amazing architecture and artistic monuments; it has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Stop by the city to visit the Palazzo Comunale, built in the 14th century, and the adjacent tower, Torre del Mangia, also built in the 14th century. There is also the Cappella di Piazza, or the Chapel in the Square, a small marble chapel built in 1352 to thank the Virgin Mary for having spared the city from the Black Plague. Siena attractions also include the Cathedral of the capital, built before the 13th century in Romanesque-Gothic style; it is considered one of the most fascinating cathedrals in all of Italy. The city is also rich in cultural traditions; Siena culture is very well known for the Palio, a bareback horserace in which the districts of the city compete for the victory banner. If you’re looking for an adventure under the Tuscan sun for a weekend, Siena is the perfect spot.
