A glimpse of Siena, my best 10 photos

August 11, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Today i want to bring you in one of the most scenic and photogenic cities of Italy, full of history and charme: Siena.

UNESCO world heritage, Siena, also known for its famous "Palio", is a wonderful medieval village in Tuscany, my top 3 favourite italian region after Puglia and Sicily. To me, these three regions are some how connected, i don't know why, but i breath the same athmosphere and the same lifestyle and the best italian food, in my opinion, of course.

Photographing Siena is just a pleasure not only for the eyes but also for you stomach as, after a day walking around, you can spoil your senses with some delicious local food, such as "pici cacio e pepe" and a great glass of local wine... what else?

The village is not that big as it is easy to discover just by walk.

Best photo spots?

Definitely from the roof of the Museo dell'Opera Metropolitana next to the Duomo, called "Facciatone"

Safe to walk around with camera gears?

Totally safe!

Best food i had?

"Pici cacio e pepe".... simple but delicious

Camera gears i used

Canon 5D mk III

Canon EF 24-70 f2.8 mk II

Canon EF 35 f1.4 mk II

Canon EF 85 F1.8

Which period of the year there?

December

Would i suggest this destination?

Yesss

What i liked most?

I'm not a fan of architecture photography but here all the building are so photogenic and well preserved.

What i liked less?

Maybe, after a while, the photos can be repetitive and too similar each others. Not a lot of street photo opportunities.

Type of photography

Mostly architectures and landscapes.

 

Here is my top 10
