Enjoy a unique and authentic experience discovering Siena and its traditions, thanks to the complete tour of the old town and a Contrada of Palio. Our tour will continue with the discovery of San Gimignano, the "medieval Manhattan", stopping at a winery located in the Chianti and get encharmed by the history and the beauty of the picturesque town of Monteriggioni.

Along the road that will take us to Siena, we will stop at San Gimignano, a small and famous walled city set on a hill, which has remained intact over the centuries, known for its tall towers, the marvellous frescoes and many other valuable works of art.
Upon arrival in Siena, you will have some time for lunch, after which we will meet the guide who takes us on a full guided tour of the historical centre, starting from its most beautiful square, Piazza del Campo, whose Town Hall is the focal point, and a leisurely stroll through the narrow medieval streets of the city, lined with magnificent palaces and historical shops until you reach the Museum and the Oratory of a Contrada's Palio that will be open exclusively for us; the Museum of a "Contrada", as well as his Oratory, is the heart of the Contrada, it's an intimate and secret place that contains historical documents and wonderful relics of the famous Palio, along with magnificent works of art, which are normally not disclosed to the public. The tour will proceed towards the spectacular Cathedral of 12th century, of which we can admire the beautiful architecture and the splendor of polychrome marbles.
In the afternoon, on the way back, we will stop in the charming historical village of Monteriggioni, a small medieval incredible treasure enclosed in its famous walls.
