What to see while in Siena? Day Tours from Siena

Listening to our guests, what we often noticed is that defining what to see while in Siena is not always that easy.
So, there are some "must-see" places and experiences that go together with the visit of Siena and the surroundings, and here are some tours you can conveniently book at the reception of the hotel.

TRUFFLE TOUR

What to do in Siena - Truffle Hunting Discovering Tuscany directly experiencing ancient traditions and how some famous typical dishes are created: this is what you should expect while booking a truffle hunting day.

For 10 years, Mario the cook of the Osteria Cane e Gatto in Siena, "va a tartufi" (dialect that literally sounds as going for truffles). Truffles actually are a main ingredient for some famous typical Tuscan recipes, but it's not just about that.
Waking up early in the morning, and wandering around the woods with technical (and emotional) support of the truffle dogs is a hard-to-forget experience, a memory of Tuscany that will probably make you feel less as a tourist and more as a discoverer of our beautiful land.
