15 Best Tourist Places in Italy you should definitely Visit

8. Siena

Siena has changed very little over the past eight centuries, with a beautiful 13th-century main square, the Piazza del Campo, considered to be the heart of the city and famous for the twice each summer bareback horse race, Il Palio. Siena is less touristy and typically not as crowded as its neighbor to the north, Florence. If you feel up to it, climb the more than 500 steps of the civic palace for a spectacular view of Siena and its surroundings. While you’re here, don’t miss the Civic Museum, featuring outstanding Sienese works.
