Visit Siena with your family!
A simple language and some games will help children to learn and have fun while parents will discover a lot about one of the most famous cities in Tuscany!

The tour will begin from the majestic Basilica of San Domenico, then you will descend towards the medieval fountain of Siena and discover nearby the favorite game of the “cittini”, the Sienese children.

We will reach the house of St. Catherine of Siena, a charismatic figure who wrote letters to the most powerful characters of her time, although she did not know how to read or write.

Passing through alleys rich in stories and legends, we will find stables and little fountains hidden in the districts, typical symbols of the Sienese tradition.  

We will also visit to the Cathedral, an important destination for pilgrims since right in front of it stands the ancient hospital Santa Maria della Scala (St. Mary of the Staircase), today an important museum. Why this strange name? What is its symbol? During our visit we will be careful to find it in many buildings…

From here, we will move to see the smallest window in the world and spot the she-wolf with two twins on top of a column, just like the symbol of Rome! What is the link between the two cities?
Once the mystery is revealed, we will walk down the Eagle district (Contrada dell’Aquila) to find a hidden fountain and its diabolical werewolf.

The route will then continue through characteristic and picturesque streets, linked to the most important places and characters of the city, taking care to always choose a path suitable for prams and strollers!

We will conclude the tour in Piazza del Campo, where the worldwide famous horse race, called Palio, takes place every year. The guide will reveal you all the secrets about this unique shell shaped square and the majestic Palazzo Pubblico.
