Get to know Siena with Viator
There are very few signs of the post-Renaissance world in Siena’s perfectly preserved old town, which has been almost frozen in time since the middle ages. Crenelated towers loom, church bells toll, and the squares bustle with locals going about their day, as they have for centuries. Twice a year, visitors flock to the main Piazza del Campo to see horses carrying riders in medieval garb pound their way around the track for the Palio di Sienna, one of the oldest festivals in Italy.
