Reserving its medieval aspect, Siena has remained one of Tuscany's most visited cities holding great artistic interest and a wealth of important monuments including Piazza del Campo, Piazza del Duomo, Palazzo Pubblico, and Palazzo Sansedoni. Siena is also notorious for its Palio which takes place twice a year; once on July 2nd to commemorate the miracles of the Madonna of Provenzano and again on August 16th. San Gimignano has preserved its medieval appearance more completely than any other town in Tuscany. The town is famous for its numerous towers which make it conspicuous from a great distance and provide one of the most remarkable sights in Italy. West of San Galgano in a beautiful countryside with interesting old farmhouses, is Chiusdino, San Galganos birthplace. Take a relaxing and scenic drive to San Galgano, where the Abbey of Galgano can be visited. The pure naturalistic and faunal habitat make this area a popular destination for trekking, cycling and horse riding.
