Discover Siena's charming historic centre and the impressive St Mary of the Assumption Cathedral with this walking tour around the city.
Siena City Tour + Cathedral
As the city's bells chime we'll meet at 10.30 am and begin the tour around Siena, starting at Piazza del Campo also known as one of Europe's greatest medieval squares. Here we'll admire the facade of the iconic Palazzo Publico, with the Torre del Mangia towering next to us.
The tour will continue to the Gothic style palace, Palazzo Tolomei, where notable figures from the Tolomei family lived. Nearby is the Palazzo Salimbeni, with its striking architecture giving us an insight into Siena's past. We'll also find out about one of Europe's oldest banks.
Next, we'll make our way to the St. Catherine of Siena Sanctuary and the San Domenico Basilica. We'll step inside the latter to see the most highly regarded relics in Tuscany. Here you'll find the severed head of St. Catherine.
The following stop will be the Piazza del Duomo for a guided tour of the baptistry and the Siena Cathedral. We'll head inside the remarkable place of worship which is full of beautiful masterpieces, including the La Maestá di Buoninsegna and the Saint Paul Statue sculpted by Michelangelo Buonarroti.
At 12:30 pm the tour will finish at a bakery in the centre of Siena, where we'll enjoy a delicious sample of local sweet treats.
