January in Siena isn’t only a cold month, because you can just sip a tea in front of a fireplace after a visit to a medieval contrada, but is also a period for a deepening of Siena history thanks to the six itineraries offered by Toscanalibri.it, “Passeggiate d’autore”.
The meetings will be on weekends and will start on Saturday 18th, each tour includes a guide, a moderator and a special guest: at 11:00 am it will start the route dedicated to the “goliardi rites”, the favorite places by the University students, La Lizza, Via della Sapienza, Piazza Indipendenza, Conca d’Oro, Rettorato dell’Università di Siena and Teatro dei Rinnovati.
