DISCOVERING SIENA TOGETHER WITH YOUR DOG
A weekend of history, culture, Renaissance art, good food and … a fantastic UNESCO heritage city accompanied by your most faithful friend.
Arrival by self-organised transport at Hotel Italia, just 300 metres from the pedestrian centre of Siena, with private parking. After settling in at the hotel you can take the opportunity to head towards the historic centre of Siena. This medieval city will capture your attention with its squares and historic buildings. To end this day on a high note, a tasty all inclusive dinner will be waiting for you in the evening at a local restaurant in the centre, where you can enjoy typical Sienese dishes in the company of your puppy. Overnight stay at the hotel.
After a full breakfast at the hotel, we will take you on a journey to discover the most remarkable sights of the city that was one of the most important economic and cultural centres of the Italian Middle Ages. Siena is a beautiful city of art, whose historic centre has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is therefore ideal for strolling through its streets, even more so in the company of your puppy. Our private guide will meet you in Piazza Duomo at 10 a.m. and for the next 3 hours he/she will take you to discover Siena Cathedral (entrance fee not included), a jewel of Gothic architecture and a treasure chest containing the famous works of Michelangelo, Donatello and Bernini. You will visit the streets of Siena's most beautiful historical palaces, such as Palazzo Salimbeni, home of the Monte dei Paschi bank, Palazzo Tolomei and Palazzo Chigi Saracini. You will then discover the contrade, whose names all belong to animals with heraldic symbolism: Eagle, Caterpillar, Snail, Owl, Dragon, Giraffe, Porcupine, Leocorno, She-wolf, Nicchio, Goose, Wave, Panther, Selva, Tartuca, Tower, and Valdimontone. Siena is truly a pet-friendly city!
Finally, the tour will end in the monumental Piazza del Campo, the beating heart of Sienese culture and an extraordinary architectural setting where the famous Palio di Siena takes place twice a year. Here you can stay even longer to admire the town hall, the 14th-century Torre del Mangia, the thick walls of the buildings and much more. You can also wander around and then sit at one of the many bars and restaurants in the area in the company of your four-legged friend.
Free lunch in the city. In the afternoon, time for relaxation, walks, shopping, and the chance to spend some precious time with your faithful friend in one of the green areas with dog walkers and areas dedicated to dogs: the Belverde dog area is a 5-minute drive from the hotel and the one in the Parco Unità d'Italia is a 4-minute drive from the hotel. In the evening you can enjoy a second all-inclusive typical Sienese dinner at a renowned restaurant in the city centre where your pet will also feel spoiled. Overnight stay at Hotel Italia.
