Private Tour of Siena Back

  • Tour Code : TUR-01638
  • Type : Private
  • Duration : 3.0 Hours

Description

In the company of a local guide, discover the incredible history and traditions of beautiful Siena.  

Your tour will start in beautiful Piazza del Campo.  The shell-shaped square is considered to be one of the finest Medieval spaces in all of Europe, home to the Palazzo Pubblico, Torre del Mangia and Fonte Gaia.  Each year locals and visitors gather in the square for the famous Palio di Siena.  Here you will learn about the town's contrade, the 17 districts which compete in the palio.  You'll still see their colors and symbols as you walk around Siena, especially in the summer in July and August when the palio takes place.  

Walking through the Medieval streets that radiate from the piazza, you will discover the connection between the mythical foundations of Rome and Siena and why the city's colors are black and white.

One of the most impressive sights in Siena, is the Gothic cathedral, built in the city's colors and decorated by beautifully crafted sculptures and mosaics.  Inside, study the incredible paving, depicting the Murder of the Innocents and the symbols of Siena and her allies. The cathedral also houses the Piccolomini Library.  You won't find many books here, but a wealth of artistic heritage in the frescoes that adorn the walls.  The library was named after the family of Pope Pius II, and the paintings show episodes from his life by the artist Pinturrichio.

As you make your way through the city, you'll discover more about the city and its history, including the world's oldest bank, which is still headquartered here, and one of Europe's first hospitals.

If you aren't staying in Siena, request a private driver for the day.

Client Testimonials

In September of 2018 I brought a group of 12 from Venice to Sicily and organized all of my services with the Italy Vacation Specialists. Being a travel agent and in the business, I know how complicated organizing travel arrangements can be in Italy and the IVS team took a huge burden off of me! I would like to start of by saying "THANK YOU" both for the amazing job you did on our trip. There was not one complaint from anybody. All of our transfers, drivers and guides were right on time. This is why we have 3 more groups to send you for 2019 and really looking forward to working with you again!
