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

To begin your walking tour of Siena, meet your friendly guide at the magnificent Basilica of San Domenico and admire its Gothic architecture constructed entirely in brick.
 Explore Siena’s UNESCO World Heritage-listed Old Town by foot and listen as your guide points out Palazzo Tolomei, which is said to be the oldest private palace in Siena.

Next, walk to Siena's famous Piazza del Campo, a gorgeous square that represents day-to-day life of this medieval city and is widely considered one of the most beautiful squares in Europe. See the imposing stone tower of Palazzo Chigi Saracini, a palace erected in the mid-12th century by the powerful Marescotti family. Currently, this building is the seat of the prestigious Accademia Musicale, founded in 1923.


Continue your tour to one of the most spectacular cathedrals in Italy, the Siena Duomo (Siena Cathedral), named locally as Il Duomo. After skipping the entrance line with your skip-the-line ticket, your guide will escort you into this breathtaking cathedral to see impressive masterpieces by Donatello, Bernini and Michelangelo. Admire the exquisite Gothic architecture; walk through nave arcades with Renaissance busts of popes and emperors; and marvel at the unique black-and-white-striped bell tower.



After your tour, you’ll leave feeling truly enchanted.

I'm not normally one to book a tour, but my limited time in Siena, i wanted to get to know as much as possible. The tour was fantastic, casually walking through the streets absorbing the incredible city that Siena has to offer. I would recommend this to everyone visiting, one of the best tours.

Excellent Tour. Provided as advertised. Nice casual stroll through the main streets and backstreets of Siena. Meeting place easy to find. Great explanation into the history of Siena. We had a rainy day, but that did not stop our group! Excellent tour guide. One of our favorite tours during our trip.

On of the best tours we had in Italy. Guide was prompt, knowledgeable,and interesting. She was also extremely efficient with our time - telling us what to see after the tour. There were suppose to be two other participates, but they never showed up. My daughter and I therefore got a private tour. We loved Siena because of this tour.

Well spoken guide. Just the right level to get an overview of Siena. Great to finish tour actually in the Dumo so we could spend more time in it.

Elena was terrific. She was enthusiastic, intelligent and knowledgeable. She was a wonderful storyteller, and gave life to the art and the architecture. It was easily one of the best tours we have had.

This was a great tour with a very nice tour guide. We have seen buildings or courts that we would not have found alone. Our tour guide gave us a good introduction to Siena and explained everything very well and interesting.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

Great tour. Lots of interesting information and a good pace. There were only the four of us, so it was
exactly what we wanted. It was also a national holiday and our guide explained all of the happenings, too.
Highly recommend.

This was a lovely couple of hours. We were fortunate that we were the only two customers but it was made by our warm, friendly and knowledgeable guide (Elena). We learned a lot and Elena really brought the history of Siena to life.

We had just arrived in Florence for the first time, and this tour was a great introduction to the main sites in the city. Our guide was well educated, engaging, and spoke English very well. We enjoyed this tour very much.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2014

We enjoyed this Walking Tour tremendously and our tour guide, Elena made you feel like Siena was the best and most exciting city in Italy. We started at the Piazza del Campo and got the history of the famous square including the famous Palio Horse Races that are held in July and August each year. Watching the pigeons drink from the fountain was worth a picture.
After learning about the Contrades or areas of Siena, it was fabulous to see all the flags and very cool lights that represented the contrades.After touring around and learning more about the history of Siena, we finished at the Duomo. All and all it was a great tour with a enthusiastic guide.
