    This is a must for any first timer in Siena. Our Guide was a local lady (this was weeks ago and both my wife and I forgot her name!), Whom explained how the city has worked for the last 400 years or so, and lead us to all most important POIs and the reason for their importance. Very knowledgeable!

    Super prepared Judas! In addition to the history of the city, he explained to us how the Palio takes place and how the districts are composed, the various symbols, the activities organized for each member of the district .... I highly recommend a visit to the city rich in history and art
