History, architecture and deeply rooted traditions


This delightful small city is located on three very steep hills, it's still protected by its medieval walls although it boasts a much older origin. We will not miss the famous shell shaped square, Piazza del Campo: this is the stage where twice a year, in the summer time, the Palio horse race is performed. We will include the church where St. Catherine's relics are kept and the Duomo, considered one of the finest Gothic cathedrals in Italy with unforgettable frescoes in the Piccolomini Library. And as we say, dulcis in fundo, time to taste ricciarelli, our typical almond pastry.

A Recent Review of this tour

Elisabetta was so knowledgeable and passionate about the architecture and art of Sienna. We learned a semester full of knowledge in four short hours. There was not a question she couldn't answer, and always with such interest.
