Your experience continues to the stately city of Siena, which is famous for its splendid examples of Gothic architecture and the Palio horse race. Follow your guide to the suggestive Piazza del Campo with the magnificent Palazzo Pubblico and its Torre del Mangia. Visit Piazza del Duomo and be impressed by the imposing, stunning Cathedral, one of the finest achievements of Italian Gothic.

Before leaving Siena, you will be served a light lunch based on genuine Tuscan products in a cozy restaurant, where you will also savor locally produced traditional pastries: Ricciarelli, Panforte and Cantuccini.
