Just 15 minutes’ drive from Podere Vesta, Siena is one of the best preserved Medieval cities in Italy. Walking through the streets it is easy to lose yourself, breathing in the atmosphere from centuries past, spellbound by the beauty of the buildings, churches, colours and light that the city offers its visitors. Siena is a city of strong traditions, first and foremost the Palio, the horse race which takes place in Piazza del Campo and which for centuries has divided the districts known as “Contrade”.
