On this tour, Eli will show you Piazza del Campo, the stunning main square with its unique shell shape, where the famous Palio horse race is still held twice yearly (always during the summer). Of course, we will not miss the Duomo (the main cathedral). It is one of the most impressive examples of Italian Gothic architecture, with construction beginning in 1180: the intricate exterior is a combination of two different styles, the interior is like opening a book on Italian art. Strolling down its narrow streets and alleys, sometimes the view opens to a breath-taking panorama of this divine hilltop Tuscan town.
Born and bred in Tuscany, like the majority of the locals she is very blunt! After working in tourism for several years she found her true vocation in being a tour guide, she often says "it's the only job that I could do for 18 years or more" She is very energetic and curious, loves meeting and interacting with different people as well as travelling the world. She has a very strong voice as she sang during her high school years and that's when the passion for opera started. Still there is something she can't resist too ... sweets and particularly gelato, something she would enjoy with her guests after a tour!
