“THE VIA FRANCIGENA PASSES THROUGH SIENA” € 110,00 per person

The Via Francigena passes through the city of Siena. The guided tour stats from Porta Camollia, where Pilgrims are welcome with the stamped latin words Cor magis tibi sena pandit, “Siena opens to you its heart”. Through the Contrade (Palio districts) of Istrice, Lupa, Bruco and Selva you can arrive at the Duomo, in front of which the Hospital of Santa Maria della Scala - now a museum – housed the pilgrims. The tour ends with the visit to Piazza del Campo.

Possible stop for a “Pilgrim break” at Orto de’Pecci, a green and wide corner near Piazza del Campo. A “treasure” of which a lot of Sienese don’t know its ancient and fascinating history: a “piece of city” lived during the 1300. It is the ideal place for the families, where you relax thanks to its outdoor place and the presence of animals. You can also attend a family laboratory.

Guided tour included.
