Skip the Line: Siena Duomo and City Walking Tour
From US$34.41
Overview
Indulge in one of Italy's most beautiful cities. This 2-hour sightseeing tour, led by an expert guide, gives you an insider's view of this UNESCO World Heritage-listed town. Linger for a while in Piazza del Campo, the superlative square that is home to the Palio, a wild horse race that takes place every July and August. Stroll the streets with your guide learning about the history of the place. Visit the Duomo, Siena's stunning cathedral, and stroll right in thanks to your skip-the-line ticket. 
What to Expect
Meet up with your local guide at the Basilica of San Domenico, the gorgeous Gothic church made of red brick. Set 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. Stop at Palazzo Tolomei, the oldest private palace in town. 

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 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 in to the interior 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, you'll feel connected to Siena like never before.

Hi there. The tour begins at 10:30 so you have plenty of time to take the tour and do some sightseeing on your own once you get the lay of the land. Check the site to confirm but I don’t think it has changed. Enjoy!!

It is a lot of walking. If they are not mobile I would not recommend it- especially in July.
