Siena stands out for its medieval buildings made of bricks. The square is famous for the special event called Palio di Siena. Siena is divided into areas called “contrade”. The Palio di Siena is a competition between the Contradas of Siena in the form of an equestrian carousel of medieval origin.
This makes you understand what a big influence the medieval origin has on Siena.
Pisa represents one of the best day trips from Florence. It’s a city you should visit if you are in Florence because of its main square Piazza Dei Miracoli. The symbol of Pisa is its leaning tower.

Apart from its famous leaning the Tower of Pisa is a very unusual building and one kind. This is true because of the high historical and artistic value of its forms and because of its peculiar location. In fact, the tower is located far from the Cathedral and not as usual along one side of the church.
The Tower, the Cathedral, and the Baptistery give a unique “look” to this square. There isn’t another square like this one in Italy.
