At 7pm, with a slightly hazy head, we had to wake up, shower and go for breakfast. As expected, breakfast was the usual shitty continental, meat, bread and cheese. Although, i wasn't complaining, any food is good food! Shortly after breakfast we had to make our way outside where our coach was waiting for us, to take us to Siena. After about an hour journey we finally arrived in Siena, and much like the rest of Italy, what a beautiful place it was. After some time of weaving through the side side streets and tall buildings, we emerged in the 'Piazza del Campo', which is a large open square, situated roughly in the center of Siena. It was nice to be able to take a step back and view the outstanding architecture that was present.
Following grouping in the center, we then had our free time to wander and take some photographs and just generally go off in our own direction. In a group of me and two of my friends, we decided to locate the Duomo of Siena. Much like the one in Florence, its architectually outstanding, and I felt honoured to be looking at such fine work!

As you can see, the detailing on the building is just truly amazing! similar to the whole of italy!
But thats it for today, this is just the first half of day 2, but it was quite eventful so i thought i would break it down into 2 sepereate posts. Stay tuned for the rest of this day, where we visited San Gimignano. As for now, here are a couple for snaps of Siena for you to enjoy.
