Full description
Enjoy a private tour that takes into account children’s attention spans, not one where the young are dragged by their parents on exhausting journeys. With the help of a local guide, keep your children’s attention alive with language that is colorful and lively, and where history is mixed with art, legends, and traditions. By encouraging children to make observations, answer questions, and solve riddles, your guide will reveal the history and secrets of Siena’s monuments in a pleasant way that is sure to prevent children becoming impatient, bored, and complaining. From the meeting point in front of the Basilica Cateriniana San Domenico, you’ll learn about the traditions of the Palio di Siena horse race and admire the magnificent front of the Duomo di Siena cathedral. Next, walk the Via Banchi di Sopra — the former route of pilgrimage to Rome — that will you lead to Piazza del Campo, the principal public space of the historic center of Siena where the tour will end with a souvenir and great memories.

This was a fantastic experience for our family! Sylvia was a very knowledgeable and engaging tour guide. She tried to connect with our kids, asking them questions along the way. We visited eight different cities on our trip to Italy, and our children liked Siena the best because of the tour we had with Sylvia. Highly recommend this tour for families with kids, you will all learn a lot and enjoy seeing this beautiful city!
