Tuscany is a great destination for shopping in Italy. The larger cities for shopping are Siena and Florence with boutiques and brand name shops. The villages often focus on the weekly markets with local craftsmen who host workshops.
Many are the ancient monuments such as the "Duomo" Siena's cathedral, which is one of the great examples of Italian Romanesque architecture, "St Maria della Scala", the Sanctuary of Santa Caterina, incorporating the old house of St. Catherine of Siena. Where you will find the miraculous Crucifix (late 12th century) from which the saint received her stigmata, and a 15th century statue of St. Catherine.
Siena offers many cultural events, concerts, cinema, theatre and a wide range of sporting activities.

To the west is "La Creke" offering an astounding landscape with the contrast of the harsh rock.
