Siena… let’s have fun together

from 160 Euro

Description

With this tour we will discover Siena together with our local guide, and not just any guide! Our “contradaiola” guide will open doors for us, which are usually closed to the public, to the museum of one of the ‘contrade’ (neighborhoods) which take part in the Palio. This will be our way of trying to better understand the intricate world of this competition, with its contrasting flavors. We might go for coffee at the home of a former contrada captain or we might have breakfast with one of the jockeys who still competes. Those who have already taken this tour with us describe it as a memorable experience. You can’t read about it in books, you can’t write about it in newspapers… the secrets of strategy and public relations can’t be revealed, except on a confidential basis. At the end of the visit, your guide will give you chance to compete against each other in a treasure hunt, which will test your cunning and newly acquired knowledge. So, what are waiting for? Prizes await you!
