Florence is one of the most beautiful and most visited historical cities of Italy. It is the capital of Tuscany and the cradle of the Renaissance. Florence was also the birthplace of the Italian language and is home to a host of palaces, churches, galleries and museums. A real boon for any photographer.
The medieval town of Siena is definitely a place that had an immediate impact on me. Piazza del Campo – where the famous Palio di Siena takes place – is among the most beautiful and popular squares in Italy. And the Cathedral (Duomo) is one of the richest I’ve ever seen in Tuscany. The old town is quite large but compact and can be visited on foot. I loved walking aimlessly through the medieval alleys discovering the many hidden corners of the town. I visited Siena last March and I was lucky enough to have four beautiful sunny days.
