About Siena in Tour con Alessia Quercioli
I'm a local tour guide for Siena and its amazing surrounding. I was born in Siena so I know the city very well and I can arrange tailored tours for you. I'm an expert of religious and art historian tours, I love working with families with kids and also with adults that want to discover my country. Of course it can't miss the focused tour on Palio horse race.

It was a fascinating tour. I am not exaggerating. Back in August 2020, we visited Sienna. If you haven't been there, add it to your bucket list. Alessia welcomed us to her home city, showed us around, told about traditions, took us to the places where important events took place. She was so passionate about the history, about the art, food, traditions. We had a lot of questions, wanted to visit every possible corner of the city. The route was thought and calculated and made it interesting for us, adults, and our children. We fell in love with the city, definitely a place to return. At the end of our tour, when we asked Alessia where we could buy local food, she kindly took us to a shop and we are now back home with salami and wonderful memories. We highly recommend Alessia as your guide in Sienna.

AMAZING Local Tour Guide!! We had reached out to Alessia a couple months before our trip to Siena and she was able to confirm a Saturday private tour very quickly for a very reasonable price. Our group of 6 ( including an 8 and 10 year old) had a fantastic day with Alessia! We learned so much about Siena and were able to “walk” in the steps of Catherine of Siena which being Catholic was a big reason we booked a private guide. Alessia is so nice and a local so we learned so much about Siena. She also had fantastic communication with us prior to our arrival.

Alessia is the best in the business. We first met her in 2018 when she introduced us to her home, Sienna. We loved her so much that we booked her again in 2019 to tour the city with our daughters and to be with us during the Palio. An experience we will never forget. She is very knowledgeable, passionate and tailors each tour to your needs. It feels like being with a friend each time. We will see her again next year!

Alessia made our trip to Siena one of the highlights of our trip to Italy. She listened to what we were interested in -- and tailored the perfect tour. Alessia found a Catholic Mass for us to attend -- she made the history of St. Catherine of Siena come alive. Her background is Art History so she can tailor a private tour in a lot of ways. Since she is a Siena native, it was fun to hear about the Palio from an inside perspective. We ended our 2 hour tour with a wonderful lunch on the Plaza. Highest recommendation for Alessia!

We were forunate enough to be in Tuscany near Siena in July and arranged our tour of Siena and viewing of the Palio for July 2. What a treat! Alessia was amazing - knowledgeable, funny, easy-going and interesting. Our group had 13 people ranging in age from 10 to 75. She appealed to everyone. And watching the Palio from a balcony with her as the guide was spectacular. Highly recommended!
