Today we will see first hand why the enchanting scenery of the Tuscan countryside is so well-loved with its picturesque vistas bathed in golden light. We will visit Siena, Italy’s best preserved and most beautiful medieval town. Siena’s heart is the Piazza del Campo famous for the Palio, a festival and horse race that takes place on the piazza twice a year. The majestic Duomo contains works by Donatello and Pisano. In the old City Hall we will gain inspiration from the Allegory of Good Government which envisions ideal life in town and country.
