Time-saving skip-the-line tickets to the city’s Gothic cathedral complex
What to expect
Meet up with your local guide in central Siena. See the Basilica of San Domenico, the gorgeous Gothic church made of red brick, before setting off with your guide walking the narrow cobblestoned lanes, learning about the various 'contrade,' or neighborhoods, all of which have a distinct personality and character. Then head over to Piazza del Campo, the seashell-shaped space that has been the public living room of locals for centuries. Admire the Fonte Gaia, Fountain of the World, built in 1419; look up at the tall campanile, attached to the 14th-century Palazzo Pubblico.  After some time, move on from the square and head to the Siena Duomo, one of the most awe-inspiring cathedrals in Europe. Take in the black-and-white-striped facade and then breeze right inside thanks to your skip-the-line ticket. Inside, let your guide lead you around, revealing priceless works of art by Donatello, Bernini, and Michelangelo. Take in the Gothic interior of the cathedral, along with Renaissance-era busts of pope and emperors.  When the tour is over, feel connected to Siena like never before.

Our guide brought history alive!
Sep 2020
We could tell within the first minute that our guide, Georgia, was going to give us a fantastic tour of Siena and we wern’t disappointed. Georgia brought the history of Siena to life with interesting stories, a sense of humour and an incredible depth of knowledge.

Terrific guide
Oct 2019 • Couples
This is a worthwhile investment. The guide was fun and engaging. She lives locally and shared so much history with the color of a local added. The skip the line was also worth it as it was raining. I would definitely pick this over walking around with a guidebook trying to tour on your own.

Nice duomo
Sep 2019
Nice duomo, we didn't’ had to wait and got all the time to visit the duomo. We didn’t make the walking tour, we did that by our self. Siena is so nice and you have far less tourists than in Florence!

A tour with arguments
We did the tour with Marella on the 21st September, and we were too many people, some of them elderly, for a guide who walked and spoke too fast for all of them to follow. Some of them got lost at the very beginning, and when we met again they argued with Marella. It was really annoying. First time this happens to us in a Viator tour. Maybe it was too much walking and information for these elderly American ladies, but the rest of us had to put up with such uncomfortable situation!
