Itinerary

An unforgettable Guided Walking Tour will make you discover this marvelous medieval city; you will enjoy a guided tour of the old town center. The guided visit of Siena starts in its most beautiful square, Piazza del Campo, of which the Palazzo Pubblico (town hall) is the focal point. Then you will stroll along its fascinating streets and squares, reaching the spectacular Cathedral. The guided visit continues with a tour in a Museum and an Oratory of a Contrada**, where you can experience the authentic atmosphere of the town. The Contrade (districts into which the town is divided) are the real core of the local social life, where inhabitants of each district compete with each other as they devote themselves to preparations for the well-known Palio horse-race. The Contrada is not simply a district: it is a small state having its own legacy of traditions, memories, and emotions, including its own flag and anthem. The Museum of a Contrada, as well as its Oratory, is, therefore, the heart of the district. This is an intimate and secret place - with exclusive access - containing historical documents and wonderful relics of the famous Palio, as well as magnificent works of art which are normally not disclosed to the public. In other words, a truly exclusive and valuable experience.

TOUR OPTION: If you wish, you can decide to enrich the experience by adding the amazing inside Guided Visit of the famous Siena Cathedral, built in the 12th century, together with its Libreria Piccolomini, to discover the beauty of its treasures and works of art; among them, the not-to-be-missed floor (during the opening period), decorated with the art of mosaics to create storytelling masterpieces, St. John the Baptist by Donatello, the rose window by Duccio di Buoninsegna, the marble pulpit by Nicola Pisano, the Library which kept a rich collection of manuscripts.

  • When the Museum and the Oratory of the Contrada are not accessible, it will be replaced with another site of particular historic and cultural interest.
