“Piazza del Duomo. The candy-striped façade of this spectacular Gothic cathedral was largely the work of Giovanni Pisano in the 1300s, who added many of the statues of saints, prophets and pagan philosophers on its three great portals. The interior is equally striking with intricate marble floors, ornately carved pulpit, gilded dome and black-and-white striping throughout.”

“It is hard to imagine a lovelier square, or one more beloved by the people who live and work there. However packed it gets, this glorious civic expanse always retains its symbolic force. The Palazzo Pubblico is a huge building which serves as the seat of the city council, as well as being the repository of much of the best Sienese art. Above it and dominating the square, rises the tallest secular tower of medieval Italy, the graceful Torre del Mangia. You can climb all 503 steps to reach the great bell at its summit.”

It has always been in rivalry with Florence, politically, economically or artistically. While Florence, as a prime example of a renaissance city, is impressed by the sheer size and size of its buildings and work of art, Siena has preserved the medieval character of Italian Gothic.

“Built as a hospice for pilgrims travelling the Via Francigena, this huge complex opposite the Duomo dates from the 13th century. Its highlight is the upstairs Pellegrinaio (Pilgrim's Hall), featuring vivid 15th-century frescoes by Lorenzo di Pietro (aka Vecchietta), Priamo della Quercia and Domenico di Bartolo. All laud the good works of the hospital and its patrons; the most evocative is di Bartolo's Il governo degli infermi (Caring for the Sick; 1440–41), which depicts many activities that occurred here.”
