Hungering for seconds? Join us for a deeper, more personal experience of Siena
Our Walking Food Tour ends at 2 pm, but that doesn’t mean the adventure is over. We’re happy to extend your visit to see even more of what Siena has to offer . . .
Enter a Contrada
The « contrade » are the famous original houses of Siena, who still compete twice a year in the 400-year-old tradition of the Palio horse race. Each contrada has its own symbol (such as a dragon, an owl, a wolf), its own flag, & its own motto.
Join us in the grand headquarters of one of these contrada, where a house member will show you historic artifacts & share with you the story of Siena’s deep & rivalrous medieval history. Maybe you’ll even find out the contrada’s plan to defeat the neighboring houses in the next Palio.
Price – Extra 20 euros per person
Take an afternoon cooking class
After the Walking Food Tour, relax with a refreshing spritz in the piazza for an hour, then join us at the cooking school around the corner at 3 pm.
The cooking class will focus on traditional Tuscan cuisine, giving you all the tools you need to make our delicious, fresh & healthy dishes even when you’re back at home. The course lasts 2 hours, after which you will be able to taste everything you prepared, paired with an exquisite glass of Tuscan wine (of course!).
Price – Extra 90 euros per person

Reviews From Our Happy Guests
Loved it! We were a group of 8 looking for a tour that offered an in-depth experience and that's what we got. All of them provided a lot of history and education about the food, wine, town, the palio etc. I have been to food tours in Amsterdm, Rome, Split, and now Siena and this tour was top notch. Highly recommend!
