History Sneak Peek


Legend has it the son of Remus himself founded the city of Siena. Hence, the famous symbol of the wolf nurturing the little twins (Romulus and Remus) is an omnipresent occurrence not just in Rome but also in Siena. Nonetheless, the more tangible evidence paints a different picture of Sienas roots! The historians agree the city is of Etruscan origin. This advanced civilization lived in Siena for centuries. That is until, in the 1st century BC, the power-thirsty Romans took over the city and made it their military colony.

Unarguably, the city reached the peak of its prosperity around the 12th century. Siena flourished, grew in power, economic wealth, and size. However, with its power also grew its never-ending rivalry with Florence and the cities engaged in countless bickering wars. In the end, Florence emerged as the winner and the towns established a profitable alliance.
