Siena always attracts many tourists for its wonderful monuments
and its numerous masterpieces to visit in its museums
. Some great artists were born in Siena and among them it is to remind Duccio di Boninsegna and Nicola Pisano, who worked on the greatest masterpiece in Siena: the Duomo
In narrow and winding lanes, in museums and in the quarter oratorios you may hear Palio
propitiatory chants that recall the ancient customs and modern allegories. In the evening, on the other side, the patter of soles on the desert paving contrasts to the peace of the green valleys surrounded by the walls by its ancient administrators, for centuries till today.
In the town you may admire many masterpieces such as the Duomo, set in the Campo, Siena's red-bricked main square and the wonderful landscape of Facciatone, the hall of Pellegrinaio
in Santa Maria della Scala
, the Piccolomini library
, the prestigious Accademy Chigiana
and the wide rooms in Fortezza Medicea, that hides the rarest wines in Siena, in Tuscany and in the peninsula.
