What to expect
Meet your guide at Piazza del Campo and set off your walking tour in the morning or afternoon. As this is a private tour, the 3-hour itinerary can be customized to your interests. Designed for visitors with more in-depth knowledge of Siena, the personalized route takes you past churches and other monuments that do not require an entrance fee. (Admission to museums is your own expense.) Learn about Siena’s golden age of architecture and discover cultural treasures that take you beyond a typical tour of the medieval town. Off the beaten path, you'll head down alleys and streets that immerse you in local life as well as Siena's history. Hear fascinating tales about resident artists and neighborhoods such as the 17 contrades (districts) along the Palio di Siena, a horse race held in the town’s main square twice a year. Visit the Church of the Madonna di Provenzano and the Basilica di Santa Maria dei Servi, a beautiful church that holds Siena masterpieces. You'll come across panoramas of town and have the opportunity to take some unusual pictures. Continue to the medieval Fountain of Fontebranda, where your guide will illustrate the peculiar geology of the area and how water has shaped these hills and its civilization.

Fantastic private walking tour of Siena with Giorgia!
Aug 2020
We did a 3-hour private tour of Siena with Giorgia this summer with our two teenage children. It was just perfect! Giorgia is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of Siena and beyond, and it clearly showed in the depth of her answers to the very many questions that we asked. She was flexible to adapt the tour based on what we were interested in. Although not originally from Siena, she knows and loves the city like a local and has the ability to make the tour unforgettable. 160 Euros for a fantastic private our of Sienna. Very good value for money. Probably the best private city tour that we have ever done.

We spent a lovely morning guided by Marella through Siena. She gave us an insider's look at the culture and history of Siena that we thoroughly enjoyed. It was our favorite tour while we were in Italy. Thank you, Marella.

Marcella was a fantastic guide that made Siena come alive. Her knowledge of the city, its art, and all of the history was incredible, and she was terrific with our two sons (9 and 11). We never could have learned as much without this tour - a terrific morning. Thank you!

Jul 2019 • Couples
We very much enjoyed the secret Siena walking tour. Georgia is an exceptional guide; she is very knowledgeable and clearly passionate about the city of Siena and its cultural traditions. Three hours flew by quickly and we learned a lot about the City and its historically significant residents. Two thumbs up for this experience.

Our Guide was a Hometown Girl!
Jun 2019
Claudia was so knowledgable and so pleasant! She made us understand how the neighborhoods are set up in Siena, about their rivalries and how important the Palio is to the communities. She asked what we had already done in Siena so she didn't waste our time and really had very in-depth knowledge of what is like to grow up "inside the walls of Siena." We walked the back alleys with her and saw things we would never have seen on our own. Make sure you request Claudia!!!

Enlightening and refreshing
Our tour guide Claudia was very friendly as well as informative. She explained the history of Siena while showing us around the city sights as we leisurely walked around the city. We thought this tour was a good way to understanding the culture of Siena, sights, and history. Highly recommend!
