Siena from above

As I mentioned in a previous post, several years ago we spent a few days in Siena, Italy. This photo, taken from a tower you can climb, shows the old part of the city, with Piazza del Campo in the middle. As you can see, Siena is compact enough that it is easy to explore by foot and small enough that from above you can get photos that capture both the city and the rolling hills of the Tuscan countryside in the background. Siena has everything you would expect from an Italian city you would want to visit: beautiful historic buildings, towers rising high above the city, an impressive cathedral, and Italian food so delicious that thinking about it years later will make your mouth water.
