Walking Tours

by coconutwireless

when we have visited other countries and in our own country there are sometimes volunteers who work through the tourist offices or libraries or other organizations to give walking tours of places of interest in the cities. This is usually done for a donation to the organization etc.,
Anyone know of this type of service in Siena?

If you google "siena walking tgours" quite a few sites come up. The following is a sample:

Re: Walking Tours

Italy protects its official tourist guides quite fiercely, I can't see them tolerating "volunteers" doing the same job in top tourist destinations. They expect you to use the professionals and pay ther commercial rate.
If you do find anyone prepared to "volunteer", they are very likely to have trouble with the professional guides, and only locally authorized guides are allowed in certain places. Siena is one of those in which foreign groups with their own guide are required to use a local one (and pay them).

Siena has some great self guided tours. You get teh maps in the tourist office in the Pizza del Campo. The are called Urban Trecking maps. Fun to follow and takes you all around Siena. I have followed several of the Urbam Trecking tours and have enjoyed the back streets , the inside info and an alternate way to get a look a the city.

Travel Tips for Siena

Scuola Leonardo da Vinci

by emmaryan

This is a good little school with programs from a week to two weeks to more. Nice small classes and friendly teachers as well as private lessons if you want and activities such as dinner out in the tuscan country side at the house of one of the teachers, wine tasting activities and various other activities.
They also have schools in Florence and Rome.

Logge del Papa

by Tijavi

Just behind Palazzo Comunale is a historical site honoring one of Siena's most famous sons - Enea Silvio Cardinal Piccolomini - known by his more popular name, Pope Pius II (reign from 1458-1464). There is nothing much to see here, except for a few minutes of trip down historical lane - and a few snaps of course. A more grandiose tribute to Pius II is the Piccolomini library inside the Duomo.

Take a SITA bus if coming from Florence.

by MarvintheMartian

Siena is easier to get to by bus or coach rather than by train. The train station is about 2-3 km from the main area and you may have to change trains at Empoli.
The coach companies will deliver you to Piazza San Domenico which is much closer.

One of the most impressive churches you will see

by VDElvis

Despite the fact that the exterior of this church was being restored (and thus was covered by scaffolding) when I visited, this church blew me away. Built in the 1200s from alternating layers of black and white marble, this church is amazing inside and out. If you are in Siena, visiting the Duomo is a must.

Duomo watching--Duomo S. Maria Assunta

by painterdave

Even after you have seen the cathedrals of Rome, Florence and others and even after you feel a bit overdone on cathedral watching. This one will bring that appreciation all back to you. You just don't expect it, and when you turn the corner--wow, there it is!
This took several hundred years to complete, but go inside and see the marble inlay on the floor which also took 200 years. This is of 56 areas of scenes, etc. which gives a picture of history from Christianity to the very founding of the city of Siena.
