Siena colour - Siena, Italy
Florence, has preserved its medieval image and is home to a lot of artworks.
Not least because of this we have chosen as a resort the Chianti region. Siena, a fairytale town that lies on three hills, was finally a one hour drive away from us and we could unhurriedly explore the city.
Siena's Cathedral (Duomo) revealed a mixture of Romanesque (lower part) and Gothic architecture (upper part, facade). This special blend of styles gives it a special charm and makes him one of the most interesting churches in Italy.
1229 the cathedral was begun to build and the construction lasted over 150 years. The architects succeeded each other. Everyone left, of course, part of his personality and style in the architecture of the cathedral.
