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.

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.

The tour ended up being only my husband and sister-in-law, so it was like a private tour. Sylvia our guide was very warm, genuine, and knowledgable of everything. We would definitely take another tour from her or from Tuscany escapes:) definitely recommend!!!!!

Our tour guide was great! So informative. She took us around the city and explained the history of the town and she even extended the time of the tour a little bit as there was so much to see. Very happy with this tour and the guide.

We had a lovely knowledgeable guide on this walking tour of Siena which also combines a visit to Siena's Duomo skip the line entrance ticket, which is very handy as there are always queues and you want to avoid doing this in the heat we had over 30 degrees for our entire trip. The cathedral is absolutely beautiful with its black and white striped columns and mosaic flooring. Don't miss the Biblioteca Piccolomini which has frescoes going all the way and will leave you awe struck.

Our guide was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. She found us at the meet-up spot and led us on a wonderful walk around Siena, explaining the history of the churches, the rivalries between the contrade, and all the preparations that go into the Palio horse races. Interesting and informative!

Claudia was absolutely amazing on this tour! She is a local that was excellent and showed us the rich history and cultures of Siena. My two kids ages 12 and 8 also enjoyed the tour as well! Thank you Claudia!
