Tuscany: Siena and Florence

DSC_0362Tuscany is one of the most beautiful region in Italy where you will find unlimited freedom to explore and enjoy every ruin, castle, and even sports over the mountains!

Since there are so many things to do and see when visiting a place for the first time, that even an extended stay would not be enough to do everything. For that reason is that you can’t miss two of the irresistible places to go: Florence and Siena.

“Nobody in the Palio of Siena, at least in that of modern times, has managed to do what I did and even my opponents, if they are not biased, can not but recognize that I was the best of all and that is unlikely someone will be born able to overtake me. » Andrea Degortes
