After some time, move on from the square and head to the Siena Duomo, one of the most awe-inspiring cathedrals in Europe.

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and extremely helpful, answering all our questions with considerable patience. She was able to give us a locals point of view, especially about the rivalries between neighbourhoods. The cathedral is stunning and the library took my breath away. Siena is a lovely small city I think I prefer it to Florence and I'd highly recommend this tour.

Claudia was our tour guide 3 weeks ago in Siena. She was extremely enthusiastic and charming - what a great tour. Her Siena pride shines through! After spending 2 weeks in central Italy Rome to Venice and everything in-between, Siena became our favorite city - largely due to the exceptional introduction to this small city and important churches and landmarks by our tour guide. Thanks again Claudia!

Our guide, Claudia, was great. She is a native of Siena and provided great insight into the annual horse race and made the tour very enjoyable. This was a nice tour and since Siena is quite small, we were treated to a great highlight of the area. Worth the effort to get to Siena we took the bus from Florence for this tour.

Tour lasted almost two and a half hours. Group of six. Tour included St Domenico, Il Campo and a visit to the Duomo. Tour guide Claudia was knowledgeable and personable, sharing lots of information about her hometown. Enjoyed learning about the Palio race and the 17 neighborhood rivalries.

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..
