Siena was beautiful and we got to see some really awesome art, political, and church history while we were there.
The basic purpose of the trip seemed to be art. I am in art history and really am starting to appreciate art. I have never been that into it, but it is starting to make an impact on me. The frescos (big wall paintings) were amazing & I really enjoyed seeing them all. Here are a few pictures of some of the frescos we saw!

My absolute favorite part of the trip was seeing the frescos in the Town Hall (Palazzo Publico) of the good and bad government. It was beautiful and so symbolic of what would happen if a good or bad government was in control. I was amazed that the paintings were made so long ago and were still so moving. I wasn't allowed to take pictures, but here is a picture from our class PowerPoint.
