Excellent 1 hour tour including the history and culture of Siena.

Our guide was knowledgeable and interesting throughout the tour. She was able to bring important events like the Palio to life for us and helped us understand the culture of the Contradas. It was just long enough and ended in front of the beautiful cathedral where we could then enter on our own if we wanted. Perfect introduction to Siena.

Our Guide was very generous of her time. I appreciated being in a small group of only 6 tourists.
