Siena Medieval Time Capsule 

I came across this great article by Rick Steves, distributed by Tribune Media Services, about Siena, Tuscany, Italy.

Rick runs a company, Europe Through the Back Door, which conducts European tours and he comments that Siena appears to be the favourite city of every connoisseur of Italy.

The focus of the article, much like Siena's culture, is on the Palio, which is a frantic horse race around the main square. It takes place every year on July 2 and August 16 and is accompanied by good food and Chianti wine.
