Scenes From Italy – Part Three: Siena and Florence, Tuscany

blogspring

During our week-long stay at the Tuscan villa, we took a couple of day trips to nearby centres of interest.  I have no words to describe the incredible feelings I experienced visiting Siena and Florence.  It comes as no surprise that these cities were named World Heritage Sites by UNESCO.
Siena is a must-see if you want to experience a historical throwback to medieval times.  Famous for all of its culture and art, it is particularly known for the Palio, a traditional horse race that takes place in the Piazza del Campo twice a year.
And of course, Florence, the capital city of Tuscany, was unforgettable.  The birthplace of the Italian Renaissance, it is considered one of the most beautiful cities in the world due to its artistic and architectural heritage.

Here are some of my favourite shots of the two cities.

Coming soon:  the northern Italian town of Stresa…

  1. Hi Jennifer,

    Hope all is going well with you up in NL. I apologize for not responding sooner, but now that the book is out, I’ve been happily slammed. I’m still holding out hope of getting up there early next year.
