I have two different licences, I am both a nature walks guide and a city guide for Siena and its province, including San Gimignano, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Pienza, the Chianti area.
After a degree in Natural Sciences at the University of Siena, I spent one year in England working in a National Park. That was an excellent occasion to learn English fluently and become more independent. When I came back to Tuscany I moved to an apartment in the historical centre of Siena, near the beautiful Cathedral and started working in a tourism office in the Chianti area. There I was selling wine as well as helping tourists to find their way on the winding roads of the Chianti hills. I liked so much this experience that I decided to become a professional guide.
I have been leading walking tours since the year 2000, working for several American and Italian Companies and enjoying having always new interesting people around. Siena is a beautiful city and I love sharing my knowledge of the history, art and traditions with other people, especially small groups and individuals. I love to eat and I am eager to let you discover the specialties of this area, from "pici" (typical thick home made spaghetti) to "panforte".
Just outside the medieval walls of Siena there is a beautiful countryside and you can take a guided walk with me. Walking is very good for you and it is also the best way to visit areas of naturalistic interest, to observe breathtaking landscapes and bits of history up close.
I am waiting for you!
A Recent Review of this guide
We arrived in Siena as they were gearing up for the Palio. While we had to leave before the actual event, Costanza was able to share the history, pagentry, and rivalry that make up this event. The highlight of the tour for us was the visit to a museum that is run by one of the contrade. Each contrade takes great pride in its victories and the museum was a perfect example of this. Costanza was a wonderful guide to bring Siena to life.
