Characterized by a unique and authentic atmosphere, mostly known for the famous palio which takes place every year, it certainly represents the historical heart and the core of the social and local life of Siena.
Walking through the square, your friendly and expert guide will tell you everything about its history and curiosities and you’lllearn how this place comes alive during the race.
Afterwards you’lll reach Palazzo Chigi-Saracini, once property of the powerful Marescotti family and currently home to the prestigious Accademia Musicale (Music Academy).
The tour continues with a visit to the spectacular Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta (the Duomo), a masterpiece of the Italian Roman-Gothic architecture, where you can admire impressive works by Donatelllo, Bernini and Michelangelo.
You will surely be enchanted by so much beauty! Entering this place means elevating the spirit, opening up to art and appreciating one of the most precious treasures of the city.
Your guide will leave you at the exit of the Cathedral, after that you are free to continue exploring the ancient town streets and enjoy an excellent ice cream, taking in the atmosphere of this fascinating place.
