Siena Orientation Foodie Walk

Meet your expert guide in the city of Siena. Enjoy a guided tour of the Historical and culinary treasures the city has to offer. Wild boar is raised in the Senese hills located South between Siena and Montalcino famous for its Brunello wine. On our way to the Gothic Cathedral we will pass by a delicatessen for a taste of wild boar salami as well as the regional pecorino cheese.
Continue to the Duomo to view a collection of works of art by Michelangelo, Dontello and Bernini. We make our way to the stunning Piazza del Campo where the great horse race ‘il Palio’ has been held every year since the dark ages.
As we walk up to view the architecture of important banks from the middle ages along the main road we stop at an important cafe owned by a well known Senese family. This is where locals pass by each day for an espresso coffee and something sweet such as the well known Panforte a sweet fruit cake that is made in different versions. Enjoy a tasting of selected panforte while your local guide tells you about its history and tradition. Other biscuits to try are the Ricciarelli.
Your guide will leave you at a well know local restaurant for a light lunch or dinner where you can taste local hand made ‘pici’ pasta with a fresh tomato or wild boar sauce. Be sure to enjoy a glass of local Chianti from the province of Siena.
