Highlights

Itinerary

Wander the medieval streets of Siena from Florence

Your journey to Tuscany is complete only with a visit of Siena, a mix of ancient traditions and picturesque natural surroundings.

Siena-colored palazzi

Birthplace of the beloved Italian Saint Catherine, Siena is a medieval city made of brown Siena-colored bricks, that’s how they named the color! A jumble of narrow streets and delightful squares, medieval towers that make such a spectacular skyline.

Piazza del Campo

Built on three hills, is home to one of the most authentic and important Gothic cathedrals South of the Alps. Admire the beautiful cathedral and then climb the tall and trim ‘Torre del Mangia’, 500 steps to get enchanted by the views over Siena and the Tuscan slopes. All together create an enticing atmosphere almost like stepping back in time.

Palio horserace

Despite the city’s architectural masterpieces, it is the unusual shell-shaped Piazza del Campo that receives the most consideration having been seen in numerous films and photographs.

In this brick coveredbrick-covered square takes place the famous Palio horserace. It involves the entire local population and it is considered one of the most important events in the life of the Senese people.

Origins of Palio in Siena

This reckless bareback race run on July 2nd and August 16th, has Roman origins but has first been officially recorded in 1283. A kind of happy frenzy rules over Siena during the time leading up to the Palio and visitors get the chance to observe the locals during the many ceremonies involved in the Palio race.

Almost anything is done to win this extremely competitive race to bring home the Palio, a silk banner proudly displayed in the ‘contrada’ or neighborhood it represents.

 

 

At the end of your tour through ancient streets and palaces visiting Siena from Florence, enjoy a comfortable ride back to your accommodation.
