Once a Roman colony, Siena became one of Europe’s greatest medieval cities until 1348 when most of its 100,000 population was wiped out by the plague, known as Black Death. This beautiful town is loaded with stunning historical sites, including Piazza del Campo, the unique shell-shaped square that slopes down to Palazzo Pubblico, home of numerous Sianese treasures. Each year in July and August the Palio, a famous horse race that dates back to the Middle Ages, is held on Piazza del Campo. Siena is a popular location for film making. Most recently saw scenes shot there for the movie Letters to Juliet, among my favorite flicks.
