Located in the center of Tuscany, Siena is famous for its medieval cityscape and the Palio, a horse race held twice a year. Our very first day was a long one with train ride from Florence and a cab to our hotel. Talk about a room with a view, the hotel’s advertising slogan, “A window to Siena” more than lived up to its billing. After getting situated, we headed out and explored the city streets. After walking the streets for hours, we had a late dinner (an early dinner for Italians) and then back to the room. I wanted to get a view of the city at night and once I walked onto our balcony, I immediately left and came back with my camera and tripod. Siena proved to be just as beautiful at night as it does in the daytime.
