Siena is a city of legends and secrets. Home to the annual Palio horse race, the city lives to an ancient code of competition. It is in fact 17 distinct “contrade”, proudly unique districts with their own emblems and colours.
It’s a city that epitomises the importance of having a good guide. You can wander around Siena and admire the architecture. You can enjoy the city facades and feel a little 14th-century mystery.
But with a guide you will be transported into the medieval era, into a culture and rivalry that is practically unchanged for eight centuries.
