Be enchanted by the beautiful architecture of Siena, its astonishing Piazza del Campo, where on 02.07 and 16.08 the famous Palio horse race takes place. At 12 km distance, set on a hill, is the charming medieval village of Monteriggioni with its beautiful intact walls. Here you have the feeling of stepping back in time! A little further away is the medieval town of San Gimignano (37 km) with its 15 towers and the splendid Piazza Duomo, where you can enjoy the famous Vernaccia, the good local white wine. In the cathedral of the 12th century there are frescoes depicting scenes from the Old and New Testaments, a must for those who love art. A must is also the panoramic view from the ruins of the Rocca: you will remember the breath-taking view of the towers and the surrounding hillsides for a long time! About 50 km away is Montalcino, famous throughout the world for the production of the red wine Brunello di Montalcino which you can enjoy in the many wine cellars of the area. Along the scenic road leading to Siena you can visit the small village of Santa Colomba with the church of Saints Peter and Paul, where there is an ancient Nativity painting in the style of Duccio dating back to the 14th Century.
