    What to Expect
    The tour starts in front of our office in the main square of Siena, Piazza del Campo. The square is exactly where the World famous horse race, The Palio, takes place twice a year. You will see the Palio on the screen, and the guide will introduce you to this fascinating tradition telling about the rules of the race and the whole celebration that lasts four days, starting from the assignment of the horses to the Contradas (districts of Siena). You will also learn about the traditional rivalry between Contradas to which everyone in Siena participates from birth.

    You will then proceed to the middle Piazza del Campo, the most beautiful square in Italy. You will discover the exquisite architecture of the Middle Ages, the impressive townhall (Palazzo Pubblico), that has been the seat of Local Government since the end of the 13th century.

    From here you will continue onto the impressive private palaces, which line the main street, and learn about the history of the powerful Salimbeni and Tolomei families. During the tour you will stop to admire the Loggia della Mercanzia and the fascinating courtyard of the Chigi Palace, in the very heart of city.

    The one-hour tour will end in front of the Duomo that is considered to be one of the most beautiful cathedrals in Europe. If you have extra time, you can take an additional option, a 30-minute tour inside the Duomo. The guide will show and explain you the beautiful works of art kept there, including some of Michelangelo’s statues, and the spectacular Piccolomini Library.
