O sweet children, run this palio and let only one have it.
(Saint Catherine of Siena)
Assisi, holy land, birthplace of St Francis, founding father of the Franciscan friars. Here, at every corner of the city, one breathes a mystical air and spirituality reaches lofty heights. Just as high will be the amazement in admiring the splendid frescoes attributed to Giotto in the Upper Basilica.
Siena, one of the most unique cities in Tuscany, is famous for the Palio, which twice a year (2 July and 16 August) sets the hearts of the Sienese and the 17 contrade that make it up on fire. The Palio is run in Piazza del Campo, the distinctive shell-shaped square.
Pisa and the Piazza dei Miracoli, a concentration of art and beauty that makes the visitor’s eyes glaze over. The Cathedral (11th century), its imposing bronze doors and the impressive apsidal mosaic from 1302. Next to it is the beautiful 12th-century Baptistery and the incredible acoustics of its interior. And then the queen of bell towers, the world-famous Leaning Tower, one of the symbols of world-famous Italy.
A small village on the edge of the Val d’Orcia renowned throughout the world for the production of the famous Brunello, one of the world’s best-known and most prized wines.
