Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Basilica Cateriniana Di S. Domenico, Piazza San Domenico, 53100, Siena Italy

Your experience begins at the main entrance of the church of San Domenico, an important place for Siena and its people because it houses the relics of Saint Catherine, the Italian patron saint and plays a significant role for the Palio, the most famous horse race from the Middle Ages.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Piazza Salimbeni, 53100, Siena Italy

Our walk carries on to the medieval historic centre and in particular it will make you come upon the “Contrade” – literally the name of the districts and teams of the Palio that are organised with their own symbol, flag and motto, becoming the pride of the Sienese people who live this event in a very serious and heartfelt way. During the walk your guide will tell you about the historical rivalries between them and you will visit one of the Contrada to fully understand this local tradition.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Piazza del Campo, 53100, Siena Italy

The itinerary will lead you up and down the characteristic alleys that head us to the spectacular Piazza del Campo, the unique shell-shaped square with the majestic Palazzo Pubblico and the high tower, which testifies to the glorious past but also hides dark secrets. Here other tales about the Palio will amaze you because this is the exact location where the horse race takes place twice a year which draws visitors from all over the world.
The time has come for the first gastronomic stop – a tasting of the typical local sweets such as ricciarelli biscuits and other delicious tastings in a traditional shop: it will be an opportunity to learn about the Sienese culture that most represents the city.
We continue to explore another medieval corner, not yet visited and stop at our favorite “Vineria” for the next tasting: a delicious Italian “panino” stuffed with your favorite ingredients and a well-deserved glass of wine.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Duomo di Siena, Piazza del Duomo, 8, 53100 Siena SI, Italy

Another little effort will take you to the top of the city to admire the exquisite Gothic Cathedral and the ancient pilgrims’ hospital which hosted many pilgrims in the past centuries and made Siena great in the Middle Ages. The majestic beauty and undoubted elegance will leave you speechless.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Via di Citta, 53100, Siena Italy

Finally, we will reach a nearby medieval street where we will end our tour in the best way: tasting the best “Gelato” in Siena.
Arrivederci!
