The Tuscany region
Tuscany is one of the most important region of Italy known for its beautiful scenery, its historic cities and, most of all, its varied landscape characterized by old mountains, fantastic beaches and green hills that hide years of history. It is also renowned for its wines, particularly Chianti, the perfect accompaniment to the delicious Tuscan dishes.
Tuscany is a region of timeless beauty and rich culture that characterize its wonderful cities like Siena, Florence Pisa and Lucca. It is a year round destination and you can really come at any time without disappointment because every season has its own charme.
Siena is an elegant city situated in the heart of Tuscany, in a particularly beautiful position that starts from the north with the incomparable wealth of the Chianti countryside considered one of the most important place to visit in Tuscany.
Initially Siena was an Etruscan settlement, then came under Roman rule but its fortunes rose under Lombard rule when it was the only city on the Via Francigena between Lucca and Viterbo and when it grew a lot economically.
At the present time, Siena is one of the most liveable cities in Italy and an important cultural centre visited every year by a lot of tourists who love the famous Piazza del Campo theatre of the Palio, surrounded by 16 palaces and dominated by the Palazzo Pubblico and the Torre del Mangia, the suggestive tower symbol of the municipal authority.

"great stay in Tuscany"
The apartment was very comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked with everything you might need. Giuseppe was very helpful and his homemade olive oil was amazing.
The apartment is just outside of Siena so is convenient for exploring the city and also surrounding area. Only negative was the rooster and the hot tub was already shutdown in early October.
