The Heritage of UNESCO for many years has so much to tell you!
We will pass the medieval walls, cross the mysterious and silent alleys, and reach the Basilica of San Domenico and the sanctuary house of Santa Caterina da Siena, these houses have saved the memories of the Saint Patron of Italy. And this is only the beginning of the most memorable trip.
Santa Caterina is a historic character, a woman who was challenging popes and emperors. Her charisma and energy still live in the heart of the Sienese people that twice a year compete in the famous race horses, every July 2 and August 16: the Palio.
Furthermore we will visit the most important places of the district: Piazza del Campo, with its unique shape of seashell, surrounded by numerous palaces. Its pattern is interrupted by the height of Torre del Mangia and completes with the elegant Gothic Siena Cathedral. It is alternatively made of local white and green marble and art works that carry the signature of Donatello, Michelangelo, Pinturicchio, Nicola and Giovanni Pisano, Beccafumi, Bernini and then ... we will start feeling hungry and sweet snacks typical Siena’s pastries and biscuits will be served: ricciarelli, cavallucci, panforte and accompanied with traditional dessert wine - Vin Santo!
The Via Francigena unites with Siena Monteriggioni, which "towers crowns his walls" (cit. Dante Alighieri ’’di torri si corona’’) and San Gimignano, the home of the prestigious Vernaccia saffron crocus wine. San Gimignano is one of the best examples in Europe of urban organization of the communal age, still preserving 14 towers, the walls, the town hall, which dominates the entire valley.
