Discover the true life of the patroness of Italy: Santa Caterina and visit the places in Siena linked to her. Where and how did this extraordinary woman lived and why do we know so much about her? On this fascinating city tour we will find out who Catherine really was and why we know so much about her life today. This extraordinary woman of the Middle Ages was first known in Siena, then in Italy and finally in Europe. We will visit places related to her, such as the Basilica of San Domenico where her relics are kept, the house where she lived with her family, the former hospital of Santa Maria della Scala where she took care of pilgrims, the poor and the sick, and much more. We will walk through less known streets and alleys and we will be enchanted by the spectacular view of the city.
