Highlights Of Siena - Half day tour


3 hours

Siena is one of the most beautiful cities in Tuscany and the world. Almost every place had its golden times, and for Siena, it was certainly the turn of the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. At that time, there was great economic development, and consequently, investments were made in the art and beautification of the city. Siena has retained its unique medieval aspect to this day.

At the same time, it is a very particular city, steeped in mysticism and esotericism. After all, it was located on the main route of the Middle Ages, the Via Francigena, where pilgrims from all parts of the world crossed paths.

During the guided tour, you’ll learn about the history of Siena and its traditions, especially Palio, the medieval horse race that still takes place twice a year. We will visit together one of the most beautiful churches in the world, Siena’s cathedral, and I will show you the unique Piazza del Campo.
