I know that travel agents are not supposed to have a favorite when it comes to travel. But I really do! My favorite town in Italy is Siena. It is a small town in the Tuscany region with a medieval feel to it. It has a fan shaped central square, Palazzo del Campo. This is where the famous Palio horse race that takes place twice a year. This race has been taking place since the 6th century. For everyone born in Siena they are born into a Contrade or “district”. Each Contrade has a horse that gets to race against each other. The race has a been many strange rules, traditions and customs. The town is not to be missed if in the Tuscany area! For more information contact Lisa at Travel By Lisa, Inc.
