Study Italian in an international language school in Siena
Today, Siena has maintained much of its culture and history, attracting tourists and students from all over the world who come to admire the city's majestic building and Gothic artwork. Siena's cathedral, which was built in the 12th century, is a fantastic example of Romanesque architecture. It was intended to be the largest cathedral in existence but after the completion of the transept and the building of the east wall, the rest of the cathedral was abandoned because the money ran out. The Piazza del Campo, Siena's town square, is in the shape of a shell and houses the Palazzo Pubblico and the Torre del Mangia. Inside the Palazzo Pubblico is an important art museum. Within this museum is some of Ambrogio Lorenzetti, Simone Martini and Pietro Lorenzetti's finest frescoes. The Palazzo Salimbeni on the Piazza Salimbeni, is a notable building and also the medievel headquarters of Monte dei Paschi di Siena, one of the oldest banks still in existence and a major factor in the Sienese economy. The nearest international airports are in Florence and Pisa. There is an effecient train service linking the three cities. The train station in Siena is located just outside the city walls. Buses leave from Piazza Gramsci, which is located within the city walls.
