About your host

I’m MIHAELA JIANU, ex-corporate employee, national tour guide in Romania. I came to Siena for a sabbatical year and now... I live here! As Italian speaker I "soaked" myself in the most particular Tuscan experiences: fresh sensible curious "foreigner" soul can see details residents might miss. I’m always eager to share my Emotional Perspective, Love for funny local anecdotes in a mix of history…

What we’ll do

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? ◢…

What to bring

Comfortable walking shoes (during all seasons), sunscreen and sun hats in summer.

Where you'll be

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.
