Painting and cakes: the heart of Siena

This tour will take you into the heart of Siena, where in the Late Middle Ages, the famous local painter Duccio had his workshop, where he painted the famous Majesty for the Cathedral of Siena. The route starts from the museum “Opera of the Cathedral” (where the Majesty is exposed), and will then take you inside the Cathedral. Then, proceeding to the downtown streets you will come to what was once the workshop of the painter and today is a bakery where you can taste all kinds of cake from Siena, like “cantucci”, “ricciarelli”, “panforte”, and “panpepato”.

  • Entrance fee to the museum “Opera of the Cathedral” and Cathedral (single ticket).
  • Tasting sessions are not free, although the taste of products aimed at their sale is in some cases free of charge.
