Siena, Italy. September 2014.

Always branded as Florence’s less crowded neighbor (although let’s face it, it’s pretty crowded here too, sometimes), Siena is worth a visit all on its own. It’s a nice day trip or half day trip, and almost all the notables are within a 5-10 minute radius from the center. I really like it when old towns are jam-packed with things to see and do. An instagrammer’s dream (since technically I’m no photographer haha)!

Like many duomos in Tuscany and nearby regions, the church was built originally medieval (brick), and then renaissance-d up. You’ll also notice these graphic stripes paired with the ornate baroque-ish façades in many duomos and churches.

Siena is pretty small, and it wasn’t palio season when I went (I imagine it would be a lot more crowded during the palio), so it was nice to walk around maplessly.

400+ steps up, not a great idea when one isn’t in shape and forgot to warm up :))
