What you'll do

Anche in ITALIANO! ◢ In just couple of hours you will discover why those who had already been to Siena often say "Siena? I looove Siena!" Walking through Siena's thriving historic center, with redbrick lanes cascading every which way, you will enjoy Italy's best medieval city experience. ◢ You will discover Siena's essence wandering in narrow streets lined with colorful flags, personalized lamps, and iron rings to "park" the horses. Take time to savor the first European city to eliminate automobile traffic from its main square (1966). ◢ On 3 hours Slow-Motion Emotional Cruising you shall admire Siena's must-see beauty, with Special Touch details that, on one's own, may be easy to dismiss. ◢ We start our quest in Piazza Salimbeni (next to the historical head office of venerable Monte dei Paschi, the oldest bank in the world still in business). Our journey will take us on Saint Catherine of Siena very footsteps, from her parents' house to the most decorated Cathedral in Italy. We check on Piazza del Campo, the beating heart of the city. We take the ancient Via Francigena pilgrimage route on Banchi di Sopra, home to medieval moneylenders, returning to Piazza Salimbeni.

I’m MIHAELA JIANU, ex-corporate employee, national tour guide in Romania. I came to Siena for a sabbatical year and now... I live here! As Italian speaker I "soaked" myself in the most particular Tuscan experiences: fresh sensible curious "foreigner" soul can see details residents might miss. I’m always eager to share my Emotional Perspective, Love for funny local anecdotes in a mix of history and art enjoyed MeterByMeter. No rush, but SlowMotion, like in a city intimate relationship. After these unique unforgettable tours, you’ll feel Siena as: Time Wanderess https://bit.ly/2TGWR8X A presto!
