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.
