Siena was in Medieval times such a powerful city to rival Florence, its historical enemy. To this and other rivalries between Tuscan towns we owe so many beautiful buildings and impressive monuments: who between Florence and Siena could build the most impregnable castles wall, or the most ornate churches?

The whole of the historic centre of Siena has been declared by UNESCO a World Heritage Site.

Siena was a free, independent "comune" (city-state) for over four hundreds years, from the late 11th century until the year 1555, and has remained a great city of art and commerce, wealthy and prosperous, even after then.

The University of Siena, founded in 1240, is one of the world's oldest and first publicly-funded universities.

Siena, along with Florence and other northern Italian cities, invented banks as the modern institutions that we know. Monte dei Paschi di Siena, founded in 1472, is not only one of Italy's major banks but the world's oldest bank still in existence.

Siena is a Medieval and Renaissance jewel. Open any door in Siena and art pours out - paintings, frescoes, sculptures. The Duomo of Siena is one of the oldest cathedrals in Italy.

Map showing the location of Siena in Tuscany
The architecture of the Piazza del Campo, the main square in Siena, which was built on the Roman Forum, is powerful.

The Piazza del Campo in Siena, repeatedly dubbed the most beautiful square in the world, awaits you like a spider in its web of narrow streets and medieval alleys. It's a marvel of symmetry and proportion, with a distinctive nine-segment design that represents the 13th and 14th century authority of the City. In the maze of Medieval alleys of Siena you'll also find master craftsmen working alabaster.

Siena is also famous for its Palio, a controversial bareback horse race run in Piazza del Campo, the heart of the city, as a competition among Siena's various "contrade" (historical city boroughs).
