Tour description

Are you visiting Siena for the first time and want to discover the most significant places of a city that was one of the most important economic and cultural centers of the Italian Middle Ages?

Free Walking Tour Siena is the visit for you! We will begin the tour outside the Church of San Domenico , where the remains of Saint Catherine , an iconic figure of the city, patron saint of Italy and Europe, are still preserved. We will descend along streets and districts, up to Fontebranda , a magical place, and then go back up to Piazza Duomo. Behind it is Santa Maria della Scala , the oldest hospital in the world. The tour will have its natural conclusion in the monumental Piazza del Campo , the beating heart of Siena culture and an extraordinary architectural setting in which the famous Palio di Siena takes place twice a year.

Our tour with Benedetta was outstanding. She’s a native of Siena, and her love for her city was evident throughout the tour. She took us to a bunch of impressive sites and expertly explained the significance of each. Siena is built in hilly country, so be prepared to trek up and down some fairly vertiginous streets, but it will be well worth it.
