Siena is a treasure trove of historical, artistic, religious and cultural riches all to be discovered. The best way to do it is on foot, admiring the changes to the town over the centuries and enjoying its spectacular views and the interesting details of its history. Lead by an expert guide you will be able to appreciate the major tourist attractions like Piazza del Campo, the true heart of the town, the Palazzo Comunale (Town Hall), the Cathedral and the majestic Basilica of San Domenico. There will also be no lack of references to the great noble families, such as the Piccolomini, Tolomei and Salimbeni, and their palazzos, to the great tradition of the Siena Palio, and also to the stories of pilgrimage and saintliness that distinguish the town. The walk continues to the Cathedral (external visit) that preserves the treasures of artists like Nicola Pisano, Duccio di Buoninsegna, Donatello, Pinturicchio and Gianlorenzo Bernini, and is also noted for its marvellous marble floor, which is a unique example in the history of art. Tour duration is 1 hour 30 minutes.
