Grotta Santa Caterina da Bagoga
@cristina
True Sienese food. The owner and chef was a jockey in the Palio. His nickname was Bagoga. Although he is from Montalcino, the Palio made him fall in love with Siena.

What to See

Duomo di Siena
@cristina
The most magnificent cathedral in Italy. Due to the black plague, it was never finished as Siena lost 50% of their citizens. It was supposed to be twice the size. You can still see where the columns were supposed to go and the original facade of the part not finished is still there. Please get tickets in advance.

I am the person who greets you at your arrival, organizes all you need during your stay, teaches Tuscan cooking at its finest and may be seen playing with my goats more often than not. From 1998 until 2014 I ran the website expatsinitaly.com which had over 50K members who gave daily advice on everything from where to shop to how to get a visa.
