Return Details

Piazza del Duomo, 53100 Siena SI, Italy
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.

The walking tour was excellent. A gentle stroll through the beautiful streets of Siena. Claudia, the tour guide, was both knowledgeable and engaging. Claudia also stayed beyond the allocated time in the Duomo in order to further explain some of its hidden treasures. Also for what the tour covered, the price was very reasonable. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Siena.

Our guide, Claudia, was personable, knowledgable, witty, and energetic. She was proud of her hometown. She provided the historical significance of the Basilica of San Domenico, Santa Cateriniana, Piazza di Campo, and the Duomo. She shared, with enthusiasm, detailed information about the Palio and the friendly rivalry among the 17 church neighborhoods as well as the world's oldest Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena. Very much worth the tour; Grazie Claudia!
