What you'll do

The experience is designed for an audience of families with children aged six and over. We will meet in front of the church of San Domenico where the boys will receive images of animals, the symbols of the 'contrade' that run the Palio di Siena, whose history I will tell them during the tour. We will start a nice panoramic tour, playing with the 'barberi', colored wooden marbles, and tasting the 'cantuccini', Sienese biscuits. During the visit we will stop in front of the colorful facade of the cathedral of Siena and we will conclude in front of the Palazzo Comunale, in the beautiful Piazza del Campo, shaped like a shell.

After studying art history since 2008, I began to devote myself with great passion to the profession of tour guide in and around Siena and tour guide.

Come with me to visit Siena and its territory, learn about the art and history of San Gimignano, admire the landscapes of the Sienese Crete, taste the typical products of Pienza and Valdorcia or savor the wines of Chianti, Montepulciano or Montalcino!
