Piazza del Campo , Il Campo, 53100 Siena SI, Italy

In front of the Fonte Gaia fountain in Piazza del Campo, Siena's main square.

This activity will end right where it started.
Meet your guide at Piazza del Campo and set off your walking tour in the morning or afternoon. As this is a private tour, the 3-hour itinerary can be customized to your interests. Designed for visitors with more in-depth knowledge of Siena, the personalized route takes you past churches and other monuments that do not require an entrance fee. (Admission to museums is your own expense.)

Learn about Siena’s golden age of architecture and discover cultural treasures that take you beyond a typical tour of the medieval town. Off the beaten path, you'll head down alleys and streets that immerse you in local life as well as Siena's history. Hear fascinating tales about resident artists and neighborhoods such as the 17 contrades (districts) along the Palio di Siena, a horse race held in the town’s main square twice a year.

Visit the Church of the Madonna di Provenzano and the Basilica di Santa Maria dei Servi, a beautiful church that holds Siena masterpieces. You'll come across panoramas of town and have the opportunity to take some unusual pictures. Continue to the medieval Fountain of Fontebranda, where your guide will illustrate the peculiar geology of the area and how water has shaped these hills and its civilization.

We had an amazing experience! It was the highlight of our 3 weeks in Tuscany. The guide was personable and knowledgeable, and our experience was warm and receptive. We had local sweets, were given wine at one point, and learned an amazing amount about the history of Siena and the Palio del Campo. A local contrada museum opened its doors to us! The guide was so flexible and sensitive to our personal interests. Couldn't have been better!

Es war sehr angenehm mit unserer Reiseleiterin Bettina durch die Gassen von Siena zu schlendern. Neben Tradition und Geschichte und Kultur durften wir viel Neues über Land und Leute erfahren. Es war absolut super!
