The city has 50,000 people and is on the UNESCO World Heritage Sites’ list. Siena is located in the Northern Italy, in the hills of Tuscany, about 70 km southern from its eternal rival, Florence. During the Medieval Age, Siena was always incredibly rich city-state but its power started to decline as Florence’s power rose.
