Siena: walking tour with Cathedral option
A city with a medieval history, beautiful architecture and a lively culture. On this tour you will enjoy the main attractions in town.

Siena was declared world heritage Site by Unesco: discover its treasures with a local guide and immerse yourself in its art, culture and traditions. You will explore every corner and the ancient streets with a small group of people.

The tour will start in the heart of the city: Piazza del Campo, the political centre, where you will learn about the history of the majestic Palazzo Pubblico (today, city hall and seat of the Civic Museum)

In this square you will discover the tradition of the "Palio", the horse race that takes place twice a year since the middle ages. You will also admire Fonte Gaia and you will discover the history of the mysterious “bottini”, an underground medieval aqueduct excavated in the sandstone. You will hear funny anecdotes about the spasmodic search of the much-sought river called "Diana".

Afterwards you will walk the ancient street Banchi di Sopra, a small part of the ancient via Francigena, the pilgrim's road that starts in North Europe and finishes in Rome. Along this street the guide will tell you about important siena's families and will show you their palaces:  Tolomei, one of the oldest private buildings of the city, and Salimbeni seat of the oldest public bank of Europe. 

The tour will continue towards the Basilica of San Domenico which houses the relics of Saint Catherine of Siena, then you will discover the Sanctuary where she used to live with her family. 

Afterwards you will pass by the Baptistery and the stunning Cathedral. You will also visit the inside if you chose the option with Cathedral included, to admire the artworks of important Italian artists, such as Michelangelo, Donatello and Bernini (the Cathedral ticket is not included)
