Piazza del Campo, authentic Cuisine and the Secrets of the "contrade".

Your tour will begin in the unique Piazza del Campo in Siena. With its unusual and original seashell shape this historic landmark is renowned worldwide for its beauty and architectural integrity. This is the "piazza" where the noted Palio di Siena is performed twice a year (2 July and 16 August); an event drawing in all of the Sienese population, divided by tradition and the different "contrade" (antique name for Sienese neighborhoods).

Your personal guide will show you two buildings of inestimable cultural value: the Duomo, one of the more significant churches architecturally in the Romanesque-Gothic style, and the Museo dell' Opera. The latter being the location of some extremely valuable works of art, gathered by some of the great Sienese artists from the III and VIII Centuries, including Jacopo della Quercia, Lorenzo Ghiberti and Donatello.Lunch will then be served at a regionally characteristic restaurant where you will be able to taste a variety of refined authentic Sienese dishes. This unique restaurant, built within the Etruscan tuff vaults, will offer you culinary memories that will last a lifetime. The ample choice of Italian and foreign wines will allow you to fully appreciate the ancient flavors and aromas represented by the chef through traditional world-famous Sienese cuisine.Later you will witness a truly unique side of this beautiful city - an exclusive to Dragonfly Tours - when your guide will take you on a rarely seen tour of one of the seventeen 'contrade of Siena'.A truly memorable tour experience unlike any other you will have experienced, and illustrative of the personalized service we at Dragonfly Tours aim to deliver.Please note: transfers by luxury chauffeured car to and from your accommodation can be arranged upon request.
