Have you ever been to Siena?

Siena was a proud, wealthy, and warlike independent city-state during the Middle Ages, until its final defeat by Florence. Medieval Sienese art (painting, sculpture, architecture, etc.) is unique and of great historical importance. Some of the famous artists who lived and worked in Siena are Duccio, Simone Martini, and Ambrogio and Pietro Lorenzetti. Sienese people are fiercely proud of their city and their neighborhood (contrada). The Palio, is all about neighborhood pride and rivalry, and also constitutes the unbroken continuation of a Medieval tradition associated with religion, pageantry, trash-talking, bragging, and occasional violence. It is taken very seriously and is in no way a put-on for tourists; in fact, you are likely to be less welcomed during the Palio than at any other time, and there isn't the slightest doubt that Siena would run the Palio with great enthusiasm regardless of whether any visitors ever showed up.

"Como tinhamos pouco tempo, optamos pelo "Um dia na Toscana". Foi uma grata surpresa! Passamos um dia muito agradável, com passeios excelentes... O guia Lorenzo extremamente simpático, gentil, e principalmente competente. Sugerimos calçados confortáveis, pois é bem cansativo, por ser apenas um dia. Com certeza vamos indicar; valeu muito a pena!"
★★★★★
"Goed georganiseerde tour met een mooie afwisseling tussen de bezienswaardigheden waar je zelf kon rondlopen, de guided tour in Siena en de wijnproeverij in de Chiantistreek. Mede dankzij de leuke en professionele gids Eleonora!"
