Once arrived to the destination, get ready to walk, following the suggestions of the Sienese “Ambassador of the Tuscan Style” Federico Minghi: the city of the Palio is to be visited only on foot, with good shoes, suitable for climbs and descents.
Begin from Piazza del Campo, a magnificent place that hosts the famous horse racing twice a year, and from the Duomo. Do not miss the National Art Gallery and the Civic Museum (you will surely appreciate the frescoes by Ambrogio Lorenzetti on the Good and Bad Government, medieval allegories), and then lose yourself in the cobbled streets to experience the scents, the charming glimpses and the flavors of one of the European capitals of the past. Here in the Middle Ages, merchants from all over the world came to trade in spices, gold and precious products. Taste the “panforte” and take a look to the evocating theory of red roofs from the Torre del Mangia.
