Siena and the Crete Senesi
 
Siena and the Crete Senesi

Siena is like a fortress full of arts, surrounded by sweet, suggestive hillsides.The duomo and bell tower dominate the skyline of this antique city.The duomo is an absolute masterpiece even more valued by its internal masterworks.

 
Siena and the Crete Senesi

Piazza del Campo, the most beautiful plaza of the world according to historians. Always home to important events of the city....

Here, every day, great markets were held where important historical figures passed their time... here where the Senesi played their ferocious “games”...  that were eventually substituted by the Palio Trophy Horse Race....

 
Siena and the Crete Senesi

The Palio tournament with its colors, from the yellow of the limestone plazas to the multi-colored flags and bandanas of the violent “contradaioli”.

...the Tournament starts off with a ring of the Mangia Bell Tower... the chorus of the crowd of each side, cheering and yelling...  the sound of the carriage wheels that present the Palio Trophy, rumbling over the cobblestone... those of the horse hooves pounding on the plaza floors....
The colors, the sounds, the emotions.........

......the excitment of the dazed and delighted spectators and the emotion of the Senesi crowds......

 

Another show that you can’t miss when you stay in the area it is a trip to the Crete Senesi. A show that is offered in every season of the year but different at any single season: in Springtime when Le Crete are covered in green; in Summer when the ground is an arid bright yellow; in Autumn when the clay ground bursts with rain water; finally in Winter when the ground stops its constant erosion..
