Visit the historical medieval centre in the company of your guide, discover this fascinating ancient city and its proud population.
Let's start with a walk close to the magnificent Basilica of San Domenico to admire its Gothic architecture constructed entirely in brick. Explore Siena’s Old Town and listen as your guide points out its most important historical buildings, such as Rocca Salimbeni, currently housing the seat of the the most ancient bank in the world, the Monte dei Paschi. The palace was built in the XIV century, likely above pre-existing XII-XIII century structures belonging to the Salimbeni family.
Walk with us to Palazzo Tolomei, which is said to be the oldest private palace in Siena and see the imposing stone tower of Palazzo Chigi Saracini, a palace erected in the mid-12th century by the powerful Marescotti family. Currently, this building is the seat of the prestigious Accademia Musicale, founded in 1923.
Continue your tour to one of the most spectacular cathedrals in Italy, the Siena Duomo (Siena Cathedral), named locally as Il Duomo.

Admire the exquisite Gothic architecture; walk through nave arcades with Renaissance busts of popes and emperors; and marvel at the unique black-and-white-striped bell tower.
Walk down one of the roads that fan out from the main square and tantalize you to explore the wonders beyond.
