Siena Clock Tower (Torre del Mangia)

Siena Clock Tower (Torre del Mangia)

The magical city of Siena was one of our favorites stops during our time in the Tuscany region of Italy. The vibe and attitude of the people were beautiful, the food and drink were some of the best we experienced and the cityscape was spectacular at every turn. We especially loved spending time within Piazza del Campo, a picture perfect public square in the center of this historic city. And we look forward to returning again someday to relax along the bricks of the Piazza, while enjoying an afternoon of talking, drinking and eating.
On this day, we took the trek up Siena's famous tower (Torre del Mangia) to get a birds eye view of the beautiful city around us. But, one of my favorites spots was at the bottom, looking up through the buildings walls seeing the tower high above us, a powerful symbol looking out upon the strong city and surrounding lands for hundreds and hundreds of years.
