Hi Martina, I went into Alta Vista Search Engine for you and typed in Siena, Italy. I though I found your villa "Castellina in Chianti" but alas you are staying somehwere else. However, if you go into this website there is different language icons you can click on and then up comes history, events, etc. for the area. I clicked on events and it seems something great is always happening. They have operal singers from all over the world converging on the area, then bicyclits, then photographers etc.So go into this and read it: www.sienanet.it/rocca/wekeng.htlm

Go see St. Catherine's head. She lost it (she was a martyr) a few hundred years ago and it's miraculously preserved and on display in a glass case in St. Catherine's church. Her body is in Rome (but it's in a casket). Pretty bizarre. We learned about her on the train from Florence to Siena from a woman who seemed to be making a tour of "uncorrupted" bodies of saints.
