The Food Tour of Siena with Tuscan Trip is a gastronomist’s delight! Our 3-hour dinner tour is a complete progressive meal and wine tasting combined with a sightseeing tour of Siena. We’ll show you several local favorites
for dining in our lovely city and combine our stops with some information about the history and culture of Siena.

Siena’s historic center is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here you can see the spacious Piazza del Campo where twice a year we have the famous Palio di Siena horse race, a tradition from the medieval times of the city.
During the tour we’ll explain some of the traditions of this race and also discuss the important buildings in the area including the imposing Torre del Mangia (Tower of the Eater) overlooking the city.

Aside from the historic center, we’ll take a walk to discover the overlooked treasures from traditional kitchens serving up the best authentic recipes of the region. You can expect a sampling of antipasti, a typical Tuscan soup, pasta, and finishing with coffee and some dolci. No trip of Siena is complete without tasting our most famous sweet, the Panforte!
