Siena is one of the most vibrant and amazing cities in Tuscany with a rich history and tradition. Siena never ceases to fascinate and surprise its guests, with the grandeur of the main square and the sophisticated charm of the intricate streets. In the Middle Ages, Siena was a rich and prosperous city, but the terrible plague of 1348 made its own adjustments, the city was devastated, and Siena fell into decline, for a long time. This tragic circumstance made it impossible to further develop the city and served to preserve it in the shape of the XIII century. In the XVII century, the Medici Family provided the opportunity to hold a horse race in the city "Palio" in the central square, it became a celebration of the medieval traditions of Siena. The revival of tradition has changed the reputation and atmosphere of Siena. With the revival of old festivals and traditions, Siena began to be proud of its history and special character, was recognized as one of the most beautiful and culturally significant cities not only in Tuscany, but also in Italy.
