What You Can Expect

Skip the Line: Siena Duomo and City Walking Tour

Walk around Piazza del Campo and learn about Siena history from your guide

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.

The tour guide was very informative and her English was great. While Siena is small and we did go around it by ourselves, it was worth paying for the walking tour so that we could see things we would have bypassed or ignored and get the history as well. I recommend it.

The lady did an excellent job, even though it was chilly and showered the whole day. It is a great ancient town to see and would recommend this to everyone visiting the Tuscany area.
Tell her thanks again.

This walking tour was very good. The tour guide was informative and attentive to our questions and needs. I will recommend it as there are a lot of details that only a person who lives in Siena can share with the guests.

Our guide was knowledgeable and really took the time to answer every question. We ran over by an hour, and she never tried to hurry us along. We learned a great deal. It's a well-priced tour, also. Definitely recommend.

Amazing!
Our tour guide was knowledgeable, fun and quick witted - while we had a fairly large group, she took time to answer everyone's questions and fill in with fun facts along the way. There were so many things we learned that we never would have if we didn't go on the tour.
Siena is a lovely destination - this tour gave us more reason to appreciate the wonderful little village.
