The historic centre of Siena is home to the Palio and the amazing Piazza del Campo. San Gimignano, with its unmistakable skyline is like a medieval Manhattan whereas Lucca is characterised by imposing walls. These are some of the most charming and authentic medieval towns in Italy and the uniqueness of this region comes from having kept intact its unmistakable characteristics that tell us about its unique history.
