Secret Siena and the Palio

Choose the duration that you prefer, 2 or 3 hours

I recommend the visit to the headquarters of one of the 17 districts, but I would need to know in advance,

to agree on the opening with the person in charge

  • In addition to covering the main sites of the historic center, Piazza Duomo and Piazza del Campo, the visit focuses on the less known but no less fascinating places in the city: the alleys, the fountains, the panoramic points

  • You will explore the districts, each with its own oratory, museum, stable and fountain for Contrada baptism

  • You will learn about the rites that still mark the daily life of the Sienese

  • You will learn the origin of their fancy names: Turtle, Unicorn, Giraffe and many others

  • The districts are the unifying nucleus of Siena and of the Palio horse race. You will be revealed how to build a victory : protagonists, strategies and prizes
