Date: Tuesday, August 9, 2022
Time: 11:00am – 1:00pm
Discover the medieval magic of Siena as you walk the streets of this historic Tuscan hilltown. The tour will begin at the great Basilica of San Domenico, which houses Siena’s most cherished relic – the head of St. Catherine of Siena. Afterwards, we shall walk past the seat of the world’s oldest extant bank called Monte dei Paschi, which was founded in 1472. We will then continue on to the Piazza del Campo, which has been described as the most beautiful piazza in Italy and is where the celebrated Palio horse race is run. We shall then continue on and conclude our visit with a close-up exterior view of the striking Gothic-style Cathedral of Siena.
