Overview
Come and visit Siena with a professional guide. This private tour will show you the beauty of Siena with its Cathedral, Baptistey and Opera Museum. Don't forget your camera to take some pictures from the high Facciatone, one of the best panoramic sites.
What to Expect
If you're looking for a complete but not too long walking tour in Siena, this is perfect for you.

Start from the beautiful and picturesque Piazza del Campo, the main public area of the historic center of Siena: considered one of Europe's greatest medieval squares thanks to its unusual shape which resembles a shell or the mantel of the Virgin Mary that protects all of us. It is renowned worldwide for its beauty and architectural integrity.

The Palazzo Pubblico with its Torre del Mangia, as well as various "palazzi signorili" surround the shell-shaped piazza. At the northwest edge, you have the Fonte Gaia, a good example of a Renaissance fountain by Jacopo della Quercia with many bas-reliefs.

Leaving the political center, you will visit the religious one with its wonderful Duomo. It's easy to recognize for its white and greenish-black marble stripes. Black and white are the symbolic colors of Siena, etiologically linked to black and white horses of the legendary city's founders, Senius and Aschius. It's one of the best examples of a Gothic Cathedral in Italy, full of decorations and details of different ages. Once inside, you'll fall in love with its marble carpet floor, altars, chapels and especially the Virgin Mary Chapel by Bernini, the statue of Saint John by Donatello, the pulpit by Pisano and its bright Piccolomini Library... they are only an introduction to the beauty that you'll enjoy during this private tour.
