Silvia Roncucci Private tour guide in Siena - Italy

Silvia Roncucci

Guide profile:

Following my studies in art history, I decided to devote myself to the gratifying profession of tour guide in Siena, the city of the Palio race, and throughout the province. With me you can appreciate art and history, admire amazing landscapes and taste the great cornucopia of foods and wines that characterise Siena and its surroundings! I’ll help you to plan a personal tour, for single visitors or groups, children and adults, proposing you new experiences. I will be pleased to make you protagonists of these lands!

I would strongly recommend Silvia-- she is knowledgable, informative, friendly, and fun to be with.

We (two couples) had a lovely walking tour of Siena with Silvia where she shared just the right amount of history and story-telling about Siena. And, when we we wanted greater depth and understanding of a topic she put her Ph.d. to work and provided greater depth and perspective. An excellent combination!

Silvia was very knowledgeable and made our visit to Siena very pleasurable and interesting. I learnt a lot about the city and discovered that it has much more to see that it might seem at first.

We highly recommend Silvia. She was very responsive in arranging our day trip to Siena and S. Gimignano - She prepared a detailed itinerary based on loose instructions, arranged transportation from Florence, and reserved lunch at a restaurant with a stunning view of the countryside and S. Gimignano. But what impresses us most is her breadth and depth of knowledge on art and history. Her love for Siena definitely shone through in her telling of local stories and rivalries. Go Istrice!

Silvia was exceptional. She provided a fabulous experience in Siena. Her knowledge of the city and it's history was very impressive. She managed our group efficiently and tactfully. Silvia has a great sense of humor. She explained the system of neighborhood rivalries - the Palio - with sensitivity and insight. We can heartily recommend Silvia to any visitor to Siena.
