Together with Pisa and Florence, Siena is one of the primary art cities in Tuscany. This city has managed to preserve its medieval character completely. You begin your guided tour with a visit to San Domenico, a church much frequented for its valued relics of Saint Catherine, patron saint of Italy and Europe. Then, you will head for the glorious palace, Monte dei Paschi Bank, which is the oldest bank in Europe and was founded in 1472. From there, visit nearby Piazza del Campo, the unmatched center of vibrant city life. Here, your guide explains the Palio, Siena’s amazing bareback horse race. At the next stop the Chigi-Saracini Palace, you finally reach the Duomo, with its marble pavement made with a startling sequence of 56 marble panels. After your tour lunch will be included at a local Sienese restaurant where you will be able to taste some wonderful local dishes. After some free time you will return to your accommodations.
