Siena was an Etruscan city, and in Medieval times a city to rival Florence, its historical enemy. To this and other rivalry between Tuscan towns we owe so many beautiful buildings and monuments: who between Florence and Siena could build the most impregnable castles wall, or the most ornate churches? Siena is a Renaissance jewel. Open any door in Siena and art pours out - paintings, frescoes, sculptures. The Duomo of Siena is one of the oldest cathedrals of Italy.
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.
Other places of interest are the Piccolomini Library, the Opera Metropolitana museum, and the Town Hall.
In the maze of Medieval alleys of Siena you'll also find master craftsmen working alabaster.
