TRAVELER COMMENT: Stella has a tremendous breadth and depth of Siena from both a historical perspective as well as a current day resident. We have had numerous tours in the past, Stella ranks at the top. She did the impossible with our group of 3 teenagers and 4 adults, she kept everyone's attention throughout the entire tour which she extended to answer all of our questions.

 

Classic Siena

 

 

It’s your first time in Siena and in its region and you wish to know our city artworks, history, traditions and great food and wine just like discovering a treasure through the eyes of a sienese person.

Excellent!

We may start our tour discovering Siena History from  Medieval to Contemporary Italy in front of the Basilica of San Domenico where we will learn more about Saint Catherine of Siena mistic life,  reach then her Sanctuary and the Cathedral of Siena, consacrated 900 years ago to Mary Mother of Jesus. One of the most beautiful Gothic Churches in Italy where Michelangelo, Donatello and Bernini were commissioned magic artworks.

We will walk threogh the narrow medieval streets to reach  Piazza del Campo the main square in Siena where  we will be immersed in a magic medieval atmosphere learning everything about the Palio Horse Race that takes place here on July 2 and august 16 every year.

We could follow the paths of the Governors of Siena of the past and the present visiting the City Hall and dscovering the frescoes named the Majesty by Simone Martini and The Good and Bad Government by Ambrogio Lorenzetti or reaching the top of the Mangia Tower to enjoy the 360 °view.

We will learn about our painters and sculptors and  I am sure  you will understand what it means to belong to a Contrada di Siena district …
