Highlights
    What to Expect
    Meet up with your local guide in central Siena. See the Basilica of San Domenico, the gorgeous Gothic church made of red brick, before setting off with your guide walking the narrow cobblestoned lanes, learning about the various 'contrade,' or neighborhoods, all of which have a distinct personality and character.

    Then head over to Piazza del Campo, the seashell-shaped space that has been the public living room of locals for centuries. Admire the Fonte Gaia, Fountain of the World, built in 1419; look up at the tall campanile, attached to the 14th-century Palazzo Pubblico. 

    After some time, move on from the square and head to the Siena Duomo, one of the most awe-inspiring cathedrals in Europe. Take in the black-and-white-striped facade and then breeze right inside thanks to your skip-the-line ticket. Inside, let your guide lead you around, revealing priceless works of art by Donatello, Bernini, and Michelangelo. Take in the Gothic interior of the cathedral, along with Renaissance-era busts of pope and emperors. 

    When the tour is over, feel connected to Siena like never before.

    Marela was a great tour guide, clearly explaining the 3 centers of power in medieval Siena: Banks, Government, and Church. Highly recommended.

    Claudia was great with our small group. She was very patient with our 2.5 yr old and 6 month old girls. We had a great trip and the skip the line pass was totally worth it! Highly recommend !

    This is a worthwhile investment. The guide was fun and engaging. She lives locally and shared so much history with the color of a local added. The skip the line was also worth it as it was raining. I would definitely pick this over walking around with a guidebook trying to tour

    We toured October 9, 2019. Claudia was a very charming tour guide. As she was from Siena, she passionately described the traditions regarding the neighborhoods and the Horse Race competition.
