Siena, like other Tuscan hill towns, was first settled in the time of the Etruscans (c. 900–400 BC) when it was inhabited by a tribe called the Saina.

The Torre del Mangia is a tower in Siena, in the Tuscany region of Italy. Built in 1325-1344[1], it is located in the Piazza del Campo, Siena's premier square, adjacent to the Palazzo Pubblico (Town Hall). When built it was one of the tallest secular towers in mediaeval Italy. At 102 m, it is now second only to Cremona's Torrazzo.

No visit to Siena would be complete without seeing the Museo della Tortura!

Here is just one of the many devices that you can see there

If all of this traveling is making you crazy, Siena has a place where you can decompress.
