Monteriggioni is a medieval little village built in 1200 characterized by its perfectly preserved belt of walls; in the centre of the village, we will stop for a quick walk and a coffee…. Back in our van we will reach Siena in just 20 minutes!

Siena is a pearl in the Tuscan countryside, a countryside steel rich of ancient castles which show how life was going on in the middle ages. This tour will make you discover the town that had been fighting against Florence for centuries; the town that gave birth to artists such as Simone Martini or Ambrogio and Pietro Lorenzetti…

Our tour will start with a guided walking tour of Siena along the main road which coincides with “The Francigena’s rout”, your guide will show you hidden gems of the city, fountains and palaces. We will visit the interior of the Cathedral, the baptistery and the renewed libreria Piccolomini, a masterpiece of Renaissance painting.
