Siena, Italy is one of Italy's top tourist destinations, although it is not nearly as large as Florence, Rome, Venice or Milan. A small yet historic hilltown in Tuscany, Siena has a rich heritage of art, culture and political power, although in many ways it remained frozen in Medieval times.

Looking for a new vacation destination? Consider the island of St. Kitts. I have been visiting St. Kitts and sister island Nevis for over two decades and am well familiar with the island's history, culture, hotels, food, tourism industry and beaches. St. Kitts has long been an "undiscovered gem" in the Caribbean, although the government's current push toward developing the tourism industry will likely have a huge impact on the island in coming years. Now may be the time to visit St. Kitts, before too much changes, if you wish to enjoy a relatively quiet and completely unique vacation in the Leeward Islands.
