Jan 01, 2022 603

Without a doubt, Tuscany is the best-known and most revered region in Italy. Every year, millions of people flock here to see the famous landscapes and art treasures that Tuscany is known for. While Florence is the region’s Renaissance epicenter, Siena is its best-preserved medieval city, and has made UNESCO’s World Heritage List as the embodiment of a medieval cityscape.

Siena draws its fair share of visitors, too. With its position right in the middle of Tuscany, its art and cultural events, Old World charm, well-kept city, and upscale lifestyle, it’s ideal as a retirement destination. In fact, it tops Florence for best quality of life in Tuscany, and ranks in the top tier for livability in Italy, in Italy’s respected financial journal Il Sole 24 Ore.
