Via Siena

Rome to Florence via Siena


Take advantage of your transfer between Rome and Florence making a stop to visit the beautiful city of Siena.

No trip to Tuscany is complete without a day trip to Siena, the birthplace of the beloved Italian Saint Catherine.  About one hour after leaving Florence or two hours after leaving Rome we will arrive in Siena. This beautiful city made of brown Siena-colored bricks (so that’s how they named the color!), its jumble of narrow streets and delightful squares, the medieval towers that make such a spectacular skyline, its spectacular cathedral, the tall and trim Torre del Mangia, all together create an enticing atmosphere almost like stepping back in time.

Siena is built on three hills and is home to one of the most authentic and important Gothic cathedrals south of the Alps. Despite the city’s architectural masterpieces, it is the unusual shell-shaped Piazza del Campo that receives the most consideration having been seen in numerous films and photographs. This brick covered square is used twice a year for the famous “Palio” horserace, an event that involves the entire population and is considered one of the most important events in the life of the Senese people. This reckless bareback race is run on July 2nd and August 16th, has Roman origins but has first been officially recorded in 1283. A kind of happy frenzy rules over Siena during the time leading up to the Palio and visitors can get the chance to observe the locals during the many ceremonies that are involved in the “Palio” race. Almost anything will be done to win this extremely competitive race and bring home the “Palio” a silk banner that will proudly displayed in the “contrada” or neighborhood it represents.

NEVER MISS THE SHIP - GUARANTEED TIMELY RETURN TO YOUR SHIP
We have been offering shore excursions for a very long time and we never had a customer that missed the ship. In the extremely unlikely event that you miss your ship due to the late arrival of one of our tours, we will arrange and pay for your accommodations, meals, and transportation to the next port of call.
PS. We know very well that on the ship they try to terrorize you, saying that if you reserve your day with a private tour company and you are late, they will not wait for your return and you will miss the ship. As you can imagine, in cases of bad traffic, accidents, etc. the big buses they use have to wait in line just like all the other vehicles, and if you are on one of our small vehicles it will be much easier to find alternative routes to bypass the traffic problems.

WORRY FREE CANCELLATION/REFUND POLICY
No charge or penalty if you cancel your tour up to 7 days prior the date!
No charge or penalty if your ship will not dock in port due to unforeseen circumstances (weather conditions, itinerary change, etc.) and if your tour has been paid in advance, we will refund you.
