Meet your guide in the main square of Siena, the Piazza del Campo. There, you'll hear stories of the famous Palio that takes place in that piazza, and learn how the bell tower (campanile in Italian) atop the city hall lent itself to a word Italians use to describe allegiance to one's home: campanalismo.

Explore that concept further with a visit to the Contrada Museum, where you'll learn the names and historic significance of each neighborhood, as well as what makes each one unique. Then, wander through one contrada in particular to put your new knowledge to use.

Your walk brings you to a local gelateria, a sweet part of any day in Italy. Learn from an expert at the gelateria how this famous Italian treat is made, followed by a sampling of that shop's gelato to end your tour.
