2017: A visit to Siena / Italy

After visiting Siena for the first time in the early 80s, I came back to this wonderful medieval town for the second time in 2017 due to an invitation to a photographic event.

Friendly people and a variety of historic buildings make this location worth a visit.

Siena, like other Tuscan hill towns, was first settled in the time of the Etruscans (c. 900–400 BC), when it was inhabited by a tribe called the Saina.

Meanwhile, the historic centre of Siena has been declared by UNESCO a World Heritage Site. It is one of the nation’s most visited tourist attractions.

During the visit I took a lot of photographs, of which the ones shown here should convey the atmosphere of this place.
