Tour description

This tour will give you the opportunity to explore one of the best examples of medieval architecture preserved in the charming town of Siena. We will take you through the tight streets of this fierce rival of Florence, telling you all about the contradas, the boroughs in which Siena is divided, sharing with you all the stories and gossips of the Palio. This is a popular horse race that has been taking place for centuries in Piazza del Campo and that transforms the city radically twice a year, on July 2 and August 16.

We will also get the chance to marvel in front of the Duomo of Siena, the very symbol of this beautiful town which gave birth to S. Catherine, patron saint of Italy.

For lunch, we will recommend you one of the best local restaurants where you will have the chance to enjoy an unforgettable traditional lunch served with the best local wines.

Our tour will continue to San Gimignano, another medieval jewel of Tuscany, with its 14 towers, one taller than the other - witness of the intense competition among the powerful families of the town. Take time to stroll about the narrow streets and lanes, through the piazzas and visit the churches of this incredibly well preserved example of medieval town, the so-called Medieval Manhattan.
