The town of Siena is in the heart of Tuscany, between the valleys of the rivers Merse, Elsa and Arbia. Raising on three hills and surrounded by the Chianti region on the north and the Crete Senesi on the south, Siena is a sort of watershed between different landscapes: the one of the Chianti region, made of gentle hills covered with olive groves and vineyards for the production of the famous wine, and that of the Crete Senesi - made of sheer and almost plantless hills. Siena was founded at the time of the Emperor Augustus as a roman colony; in X century it was an important center for trading and became an important medieval city. The slow decline of the Senese Republic started after the plague of 1348, and had its epilogue in 1555, when the city had to surrender to the supremacy of Florence.
