Dama ignuda of Via dei Rossi
Who will be the mysterious woman looking out of that window? We don’t know, hopefully she won’t be too offended if we photograph her!
The colorful little houses in Market Square
Siena’s architecture is dominated by the colors of the bricks that make this city very striking. However, if you are looking for a vibrant and colorful shot, you must go to Market Square!
Open Mind in the Orto dei Pecci
What a beautiful garden! Amazing to be inside this green oasis while still being inside the historic center of Siena! But what’s over there?
The peacock in the Pecci Garden
You didn’t expect this!
A peacock scampering leisurely within the walls of Siena is definitely something else!
Will you be able to photograph it with the background of the Torre del Mangia? The challenge begins!
The Drop in the Garden of Ptolemies
Did you know that in Siena it is easy to enjoy a nice walk in the green while staying within the walls?
Hey-what’s that over there? It looks like a giant pear, but it’s something different.
This is the environmental art sculpture Drop created by Tony Cragg and purchased by the City of Siena in 1998.
The Whale of the Physiocritical Academy
What is a whale doing inside a 12th century court?
It sounds like the beginning of a joke but it’s really about your next shot!
