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.

We loved our tour walking with Claudia! She was a wealth of information, and so passionate about this beautiful city. We learned so much about their history, the gorgeous churches, famous palio race, 17 districts, and I finally understood where the 'passion and rivalry' Italians are known for comes from! We were so grateful to end up with a private morning tour, and the 3 hours zipped by. I had so many questions she was happy to answer, and highly recommend Claudia. We left feeling a heartfelt connection with this special city..

I found this trip info rather last minute , thanks to my non planning but it turned out to be a pleasant surprise. The guide Rachel, I think was extremely well versed with the sights and the walking tour aroundf Sienna helped get a good view of the city. Loved the fact that we got into the Duomo without any lines.

Quite simply terrific. Why? Mostly because of Claudia. One of the best city guides I have ever encountered. Nothing was too much trouble. She invested personal energy enthusiasm and great local knowledge. I would happily have spent two days being shown around by such a gifted guide. The sites and the stories were excellent and the duomo magnificent. Thank you.
