URBAN HIKING: WILD SIENA
Let’s discover the green side of Siena, a medieval town with an extra value for its hidden story of nature within the walls: secret gardens, ancient wells, botanical parks, narrow streets filled with flower pots, olive yards..and much more!
The full day tour starts in the narrow valley of Fontebranda, just beside the medieval town walls, where the ancient pools are still visible: we will visit them and understand their functions; then we start hiking in the southern part of the town visiting old streets and having panoramic unusual views on the countryside out of the walls. We reach the Botanical Garden (ticket non included) with its two greenhouses and collections of local and exotic trees; then we go on discovering two other green areas, fountains, gardens around the Fortress, telling you stories and peculiar informations about the town and its history and art.
This tour will satisfy at the same time your will of learning, your pleasure in moving and your need of nature: eyes joy and soul pleasure are the highilights!
