Wat je gaat doen

Anche in ITALIANO!
◢ Without our help, by yourself, you will only see majestic beautiful fountains, but you will never know the secret that lies behind them. You will be amazed to discover the genius of XIII century master builders who created the incredible journey of the water gush that offered Siena the gift of life.
◢ How could Siena grow and thrive without having been born on a river bank?
◢ The secrets of a 25 kms subterranean aqueduct linked to the visual and historical exploration of 4 monumental fountains during a itinerary that will reveal you more than that.
◢ Siena’s public fountains were everybody’s meeting point, heart of all artisan activity and Match.com. We begin our magic journey at Fonte di Pescaia, outside the city walls, where they farmed fish. Travelling back in time, we rub elbows with chatty girls doing laundry at Fonte Nuova, in a popular neighborhood. We follow Saint Catherine of Siena to Fontebranda and we rejoice at the sight of fair Fonte Gaia.
◢ You shall feel the need to share it with your friends... and you shall feel respect while sipping your next glass of plain water.
◢◢ You will have 800 years of WOW water project explained in 3 exciting hours.

Waar je naartoe gaat

How could Siena grow and thrive without a river? Its public fountains were the meeting point of all living souls, people and beasts alike, the heart of all artisan activity, and the Match.com for the neighborhood’s youngsters. They farm fish at Fonte di Pescaia. We rub elbows with chatty girls doing laundry at Fonte Nuova. Mirror, mirror on the wall, Fontebranda is the biggest, Fonte Gaia is the fairest of them all.

Beoordeeld met een 5,0 uit 5 op basis van 8 recensies.

Michaela was very flexible and accomodating. The tour was very informative and interesting. She knows a lot about the subject of water supply in Siena and about the history. We learned a lot.

시에나에 방문하는 한국인을 위해 씁니다. 오후5시에서8시 동안 진행되는 트립은 가볍게 시에나 산책을 한다는 기분으로 함께 하면 좋습니다. 시에나가 오르막이라 조금 힘들 수 있지만 천천히 오르락 내리락 하면서 무리 없이 진행합니다. 개인의 컨디션에 따라서 조금 조정할 수도 있어요. 시작하기 전에 일정과 순서에 대해서 충분히 함께 이야기 나누고 교감을 합니다. 캄포광장이나 만자의 탑처럼 겉으로 보이는 건축물의 외관 외에, 좀 더 깊이 시에나를 알기 원하고 , 비교적 짧은 시간을 할애해서 시에나의 역사에 접근할 수 있도록 도와주는 트립입니다. 사람이 많은 메인스트릿을 벗어나보세요. 트립의 소개처럼 시에나가 강없이, 어떻게 물을 다스리고 번성했는지에 대해 들을 수 있어요. 저는 개인적으로 이런 트립을 좋아합니다. 그래서 만족스럽습니다. 시에나를 사랑하는 미하엘라의 친절한 설명과 게스트를 배려하는 부분들, 친밀감을 느끼게 해주는 부분 모두 만족스럽습니다. 영어로 진행되지만 크게 어려운 부분이 없고 대략 이해가 되실 겁니다.이해가 안된다면 편하게 질문을 하면 도움을 줄 것입니다. 광장과, 만자의 탑만 오르고 나서 떠나시는 분들..여유가 된다면 주저없이 이 트립을 신청해보세요.

Mihaela smiled all the time. She knows her subject well. In fact, I don't believe anything has been published that explains the history of the fountains in such detail as Mihaela related to you. I really believe that she should write a book on the subject. The people of Siena would love such a book. I have a research PhD, and Mihaela should publish her research. She was also extremely accommodating. My wife and I are older, and Mihaela allowed us to rearrange the tour a bit to help us navigate the steepness of the streets better. Mihaela and her enthusiasm about Siena helped me to fall in love with Siena. She did far more than just talk about the history of the fountains. She even answered questions we never thought of asking! We took the tour on the first trial race of the Palio Horse Race. Although Mihaela didn't plan that connection, she made excellent use of it, telling us all about the race between fountains. And she did it in 90 degree weather! There's more, but I advise everyone to enjoy that experience. Floyd & Christine, Spokane, WA, USA. www.greatnorthernu.org

I really enjoyed the Fountain tour with Mihaela, and learning about the Etruscan /pre-Roman people and their engineering skills. I had the sole attention of Mihaela being her only client that day and she was very kind in helping me up and down the steep slopes to the fountains. We also chanced on a museum of the Caterpillar clan which is not normally open to the public and is very interesting with exhibits of costumes and helmets worn by the different clans for El Palio horse race in Siena. I highly recommend anyone for this tour.

The story of Siena’s public works projects (in the Middle Ages!), how they provided water to their citizens, and how that shaped the history and culture of the city is very interesting and very well presented by Mihaela. Bravo. This is a great tour for after you’ve seen the standard guide book sights. Be prepared for a workout - everything is uphill in Siena. :-)

My mother and I took this tour for something “out of ordinary” and we were not disappointed! Mihaela is very knowledgeable about Siena’s history. Even though I lived here for several months years ago, I learned about many brand new things. At the same time, my mother is new to Siena and also LOVED the tour. A+ and would definitely recommend if you are interested in the city’s history and culture!
