About
Enjoy a private 2-hour tour through the off-the-beaten-path side of Siena to explore secret gardens, back streets, and beautiful panoramas. After meeting your guide at the departure point at either 10 am or 3 pm, you will head to Piazza del Campo. From there, you will walk through the old Ghetto, the Tower District (Contrada della Torre), and through little alleys, and then reach the Basilica dei Servi, from which point you can enjoy an amazing view of the old town. Your next stop is Orto dei Pecci; a pleasant and easily accessible garden, located just behind the main square. Before ending the tour, you will visit Museo di Contrada in order to better understand the history of one of the oldest horse races in the world: the Palio of Siena. Lastly, you will experience the stunning Cathedral and the old Siena hospital, currently a museum complex. After the tour, you will return to your original departure point.

What to expect
  • Choose from a morning or afternoon tour, and meet your private guide at the Piazza del Campo, home to Siena’s famous Palio horse race. Set off on a stroll through the medieval city’s most interesting historic neighborhoods, beginning with the Old Ghetto and the Contrada della Torre, or Tower District. Pass through narrow, winding alleyways on the way to the Basilica dei Servi, which offers a fantastic view of the well-preserved old town. Pause among the lush serenity of the Orto dei Pecci garden tucked behind Siena’s main square, and catch a glimpse of the impressive Torre del Mangia. Snap some photos of the narrow but lively Via Duprè on the way to Orti dei Tolomei, another peaceful garden. Keep your camera handy for the views from Castelvecchio, a charming square enclosed by houses and the city’s highest point. It was also here that Siena was founded. Visit the Museo di Contrada to learn the history behind Siena’s world-famous Palio, one of the world’s oldest horse races. Finish with a stop at the old hospital, currently a museum complex, and the stately Siena Cathedral before saying farewell to your guide back at the original departure point.
