Chianciano

Chianciano

 

The first decades of the 20th century saw the area around the springs (the Terme section) draw the attention of developers. Between 1920 and 1930 neoclassical establishments with Pompeian-style bowers were built, then destroyed in 1940 when the Fascist-controlled state took possession. While under state control, a new town plan was designed by architects Loreti and Marchi, who also designed some spas in the Acqua Santa Park. The town plan was adjusted by the Town Technical Office of Chianciano in 1958 and passed in 1961.

Siena

Siena

 

Siena, as its bigger sister Florence, is one of the most famous cities of Tuscany region. It is located in the heart of Tuscany hills and its location has helped during the centuries to display the small town as one of the propelling engines of the Italian Renaissance. Home to one of the world renowned saints (Catherine from Siena), the small town has its own peculiar soul. The symbol of the city is the black and white shield called Balzana. They say that the unpredictable mood of the Senese people is related to the color transformations over the local emblem. Siena has long fought against Florence for the supermacy over this part of Italy, and has kept many traditions of the past conflicts. In fact, in Siena during the Summer, there takes place the famous “Palio di Siena,” where the local “clans” compete against each other in a crazy horse riding competition in the heart of the town. The Palio is scheduled in July and in August. During those weeks the small town is full of curious people that want to discover who will be the winner of the year. More then fifteen clans compete and for weeks the town is set up with medieval flags and horns. Throughout the entire town you will discover some amazing churches and fountains of great beauty that will mesmerize you. We also include within our tour a special collaboration with Italian cuisine and local chefs that will teach you how to prepare real Italian pasta, as well as uncover all the hidden and traditional secrets behind such amazing cuisine. Please check our cooking lessons tours for more information about the times available to join in this incredible food and art experience.
