Should You Visit Siena?

Yes, Siena is what I would describe as "Peak Europe." It doesn't get better than this. You can think of Siena as a smaller and more subdued version of Florence. Florence overflows with tourists, who crowd vast avenues lined with marble-clad palaces. In contrast, Siena awaits a smaller crowd meandering through alleyways of sun-baked brick.

Should You Visit Florence?

The primary consideration on whether or not to visit Florence is the kind of experience you expect. Modern tourism thoroughly colonized the city, and tourists will vastly outnumber residents in the city center. However, the city offers an unparalleled opportunity to experience art and history in its original context and makes for one of the best destinations in Europe.

Should You Visit Liège?

Liege is an underappreciated travel destination in a country full of many world-class places to visit. Combining the traditions of several different cultures, it offers a unique local culture, boasting unique foods, architecture, and its own dialect. Though it suffered from the deindustrialization of the 20th century, it retains most of its old-world charm.
