The Palazzo Pubblico is a great example of a medieval edifice, the rich history of Siena and its arts. It has a new exhibition in the basement level, representing a donation of a great collection of the artefacts belonging to 12-14 centuries.

Must visit to get a feel if this grand city. Fine example of Gothic architecture. So many Monuments around. Plaza is a vast sloping convex shape where you can sit and soak in the atmosphere.

This was the site of the civil administration of Siena and has retained most of the frescos showing the good and evil. As a bonus, it has a really beautiful chapel and along of pictures and items from the period when Siena was very powerful.
