After leaving Rome, I spent 2 nights in Siena. A very quiet town but very nice. We did a day trip to San Gimignano which is a small walled medieval hill town in the province of Siena, Tuscany, north-central Italy – gorgeous!
In Siena the architecture soars. Effectively a giant, open-air museum to the Gothic, its spiritual and secular medieval monuments still sit in harmony, many filled with collections of Sienese art. Add vibrant streets where every third door (literally) opens into a restaurant, enoteca or deli, and you’re in for a very fine time indeed.
