Siena, Italian capital of the Middle Ages, lies amongst ancient hills moulded out of age-old tufa and cradled between the Val d’Elsa and the Valdarbia. Legend has it that Senio and Aschio, the sons of Remus, founded Siena although the town really has Etruscan and Roman origins. The town’s structure was laid down during the late medieval period when the three hill districts of Città, Camollia and San Martino came together. After the Lombards, bishops and consoles had come and gone, Siena became a place of merchants and craftsmen and grew powerful on a colourful trade in textiles, spices, perfumes saffron, wines and waxes.
