The Tuscany region

Siena

Siena is a city in Tuscany, Italy.

It is a beautiful walled city famous for the Palio, a horse race in the main square. It is the capital of the province of Siena

The historic centre of Siena has been declared by UNESCO a World Heritage Site.

THE DUOMO

The beautiful black and white Cathedral built from the second half of the thirteenth century to the beginning of the fourteenth century. Inside there is the famous Piccolomini Library, where Pinturicchio painted in 1505 - 07 stories about the life of the Pope Pio II. It was to be the largest cathedral in Italy but due to the Plague it remains unfinished.

THE PALAZZO PUBBLICO

This was the seat of the Republic government of Siena. Inside are great masterpieces such as the “Majesty” painted by Simone Martini in 1315 and the cycle “Good and Bad Government” by Ambrogio Lorenzetti (1338 – 40).

Its entrance is the large door on the right side of the Torre del Mangia in Piazza del Campo.

THE BASILICA OF ST. DOMENICO

Its construction was begun by the Domenican fathers around 1225 and was finished forty years later: inside the church there is the Chapel of Vaults, where almost all the miracles of St. Caterina were performed. On the right side of the nave there is the Chapel of St. Caterina, where is located the altar containing St. Caterina’s head (her body is preserved in Rome in the Basilica St. Maria sopra Minerva). In this chapel there are beautiful frescoes by Sodoma.

You can find this Basilica in Piazza San Domenico.

Gaiole in Chianti

The small peaceful village of San Sano has one restaurant, called La Grotta della Rana, a small grocery store, and a small church with Sunday morning services at 10am. This medieval village is very popular with walkers and cyclists, surrounded as it is by pathways, which are ideal for early morning walks and bike rides.

Gaiole in Chianti

Situated on the road ss408, from Siena to Montevarchi.

Gaiole in Chianti owes its development to its position in the valley where an important market for the local populations was centered around the year 1000.

Its name likely comes from "gaggiolo" used to indicate a large forest.

After 1300 Gaiole became important not only as a market but as a tertiary city of the League of Chianti, Florence's administrative and political instrument.

Gaiole was not only an important commercial centre, but it was also important to the clergy, this is evident by the many parish churches and abbeys.

The area surrounding Gaiole can easily be divided up into outings featuring the abbeys and parish churches or the castles and hamlets.

The oil and the wine found in Gaiole in Chianti today are the jewels of its agriculture and local economy.

Castello di Brolio

The Brolio Castle is truly spectacular and was so even after its neo-gothic transformation that took place in the second half of the 19th century.

The history of the Brolio Castle begins in the latter part of the 12th century. Its name is tied to the family of the Ricasoli Firidolfi who took sides with Florence against Siena. The Castle was invaded by the Sienese in 1252.

The Castle was altered and transformed over the years before the definitive 19th century version realized by Baron Bettino Ricasoli. Today you can visit the interior, the neo-Gothic Saint Jacop's Chapel, the observation deck and the palace with its beautiful tapestries.

Radda in Chianti

Situated on the road SS429 from Castellina in Chianti to Montevarchi.

The "Leghe" (leagues), were born between the population of the Florentine country folk in the early years of three hundred for defensive reasons. At the head of every league was a captain or mayor named by the Florentine Signoria.He was obliged to reside in the provincial capital of the league.

The end of the quarrels between Florence and Siena, created a bit of a downfall for the village.

Today, Radda in Chianti conserves the medieval harmonious structure of the village, but in the territory operates also several wine factories and it is the headquarters of the "Centro Studi Storici del Chianti" (Chianti Historical Studies Centre), founded in 1984 at the Fattoria Vignale.
