View Assisi-Perugia-Siena on indarto's travel map.

City on the small hill; it is very common in the area of Italy. One of the most famous and also beautiful is Siena in the region of Tuscany. From Perugia you can reach this city by bus or train. Not so expensive. Siena is also famous for the horse race which located in the Piazza del Campo.

The building is very special, different from the other parts of Italy. It is also a reason that this city actually was built by an advance tribe Etruscans, who also built another city like Luca. You can find the similarity between those two cities. Anyway, in the city, beside the piazza del Campo, you can find a beatiful big church called as Duomo di Siena. Instead of using as the place for praying, they also used it sometimes for concert.
In the back of the castle in Piazza del Campo, you can find a small river where you can see other parts of the city. The structure is nice, almost similar to the Genova seeing from the beach. Just to remind you, spending 20 minutes by sitting or more than 20 minutes is not bad idea. Feel the beauty fresh of Siena and imagine that it will become a place for horce racing!!
