12. Historic Centre of Siena
Stepping only in Siena gives you a feel of the medieval period. The city acquired its Gothic appearance by its inhabitants between 12th and 15th century. The entire city surrounds the famous Piazza del Campo and exemplifies a perfect combination of European and Italian art and culture of those times.
Genoa has a rich, historical past as being a powerful trade center. It is the birthplace of Christopher Columbus and is considered the most quintessential part of Italy. Genoa is also considered as the European Capital of Culture as it provides a wide range of beautiful sights, excellent cuisine, exquisite churches, boutiques and villas. A trip to Italy is incomplete without visiting Genoa.
