    Start your walking tour of Siena at the Duomo, also known as Cathedral of the Assumption, and discover a masterpiece of Gothic architecture that contains famous works of art by Michelangelo, Donatello and Bernini. Then, follow the path of the Via Francigena to admire the city's most important buildings and monuments, including the main building of the Monte dei Paschi, the oldest bank in Europe.

    Benedetta has good communication skills and it was a pleasure to listen her. However, since the streets were overcrowded and the agency haven't provided any headphones it was difficult to listen. I wish the agency fixed this problem.

    This was such great value for money. Alessandro & Riccardo took very good care of us on our trip. It was well organised and kept to a timely schedule. Alessandro (guide) is very enthusiastic and has a wealth of knowledge to share. He also makes some great jokes that keeps the information enjoyable rather than a history lesson. Could not recommend more doing this trip as you really get to see all of Tuscany. The lunch will also cater for dietary needs which is great!

Olivia was an amazing tour guide and really interacted with the group to make you feel very welcomed. Siena was beautiful and the walking tour was very informative and really made me feel like I knew the city better. The lunch at the farm had an unforgettable view!

A super busy day with views and very enjoyable walks. You have time to take souvenir photos and explore each city as you wish. I recommend taking the meal included as it was a great experience and well worth it.
