Siena: My New Favorite Place in Italy

My new favorite place in Italy is Siena. I fell in love with this city. I want to go there every year. I want to see the race for the Palio. It is also in one of the prettiest parts of Tuscany, the hilly Chianti region. Here’s a slideshow of some of my pictures from Siena:

Do you see why I love it so? I also had kiwi gelato, adopted some scarves, visited a winery, and had a scrumptious meal for two-and-a-half hours with a lovely, gracious host. If you go to Tuscany, a visit to Siena is a must.
