... 10 of the 17 districts of Siena. The riders and horses are selected randomly. The Palio and Siena can be seen in the James Bond Movie, Quantum of Solace. I have included a postcard with a picture of the Palio. The Piazza was built around 1300, It is impressive to stand in this great plaza and understand that it has been standing for over 700 years.

The crypt walls are covered in frescoes depicting scenes ...

Massa Marittima has an "old" and a "new" town, which is a bit comical since the "new" town was built in the 15th century by Siena shortly after it took over Massa Marittima. (And we think that a two year-old cell phone old!) The sites we wanted to see are in the "old town". It took us about ...
