In collaboration with the Galleria Emmeotto: A Living Gallery Siena Hotel offers exclusive and tailor made tours and itineraries, designed on your wished and requests.
A bi-lingual tourist guide is provided as is private transportation. The Galleria Emmeotto is headquartered in the prestigious Palazzo Taverna. It is here that our itineraries are conceived and planned.
The Palazzo Taverna iis a Renaissance building with courtyards and sixteenth century chambers and halls that have been converted into galleries of art.
Today the palace preserves precious paintings which can be admired guided by an innovative video system, photographs and unique artistic productions.
TOUR OF CONTEMPORARY ROME
One of the most sought-after tourist itineraries is that which takes the visitor through the historical fine places of Rome and the sites where new trends in contemporary art are being forged:
Artistic strolls through the neighborhoods of Borgo, Ponte and Parione. Visits are also programmed to the Chiostra Bramante and to the study of the contemporary artist, Marco Peretti, who reveals the secrets of his art to curious visitors.
Walking tour through the alleyways of the Ghetto Antico. During this unique experience a pause will be made at both the arcade of Ottavia, located on the Lungotevere, and the Island of Tiberina.
A rambling tour through the most beautiful Baroque churches in Rome: Santa Maria in Vallicella, Sant’Andrea della Valle, and the Chiesa del Gesù dei Gesuiti.
TOUR OF ANCIENT ROME
Dive into ancient Rome, the splendour of imperial Rome, underground visits and early Christian churches: Guided tour to those places which highlight the importance of Imperial Rome: the Colosseum, the Law Courts (I Fori) and the Palatine Hill. A stroll among the ruins of the Valle del Colosseo, from the Arco of Costantino to the Basilica of San Clemente. Walking tours and guided visits to the most ancient churches of Roman Christianity—and then to the Bocca della Verità and the Tempio di Vesta.
