PolaTour The 17 Fountains of the Contradas of Siena

By Peace&Road
About
Our Polaguides will allow you to discover the most hidden, but no less fascinating places than Siena and its districts and instant photography will allow you to appreciate the beauties of each district from a unique and unrepeatable point of view. Each shot will capture your favorite moments in photos immediately ready to be touched, waved and attached in the guide-albums created to be customized, to be browsed whenever you want. Transform your visit to Siena into unique memories to share with the whole family, young and old, and with friends. N.B. During the days of the Palio (29 June-2 July and 13-16 August) the 17 Fontanine di Contrade route is not feasible and is replaced with that of the Top 10 dedicated to the places of the Palio, of which we will provide a dedicated guide and map.

      Palio exploring!
      We thought the Polaroid camera tour sounded fun and something different for our tweens. The shop to collect the pack was just next to the Duomo, easy to find and open 10-6pm. The souvenir book was lovely to keep with lots of info and facts to read. Being a pre-Palio day, the streets were full of contrado celebrations, flag displays and singing. The atmosphere was amazing. Memorable day!

      Unique and fun experience!
      We did a 2 week trip around Italy and this was one of our highlights. A very simple and unique idea for a self-guided tour of Siena that I was so glad got recommended to me by a work colleague. The photo album and book that you get to keep is lovely and has lots of interesting commentary and something worthy of keeping safe when you get home. The tour was easy to follow and we nearly got through it all in half a day, so would recommend starting a little earlier than lunchtime if you can. We went with 20 photos so we could go rogue with a few extra photos. We hadn't used a Polaroid camera before, but quickly got the hang of it, and finding out was part of the fun! We've now got some lovely photos and an album from our day that we'll cherish, and something different from just going through your photo reel on your phone. I'd highly recommend this tour!

      Amazing experience with kids
      We spent the whole day with our kids (6 and 8yo) exploring Siena and it was a fantastic experience. The map steered us away from the crowds and kept the kids engaged for almost 7 hours. We could not have asked for more!

      Fun experience with our family
      This was a really neat idea. However, lots of walking with small children (7, 7 and 4). We didn’t get close to finishing the 17 animals, maybe reached 11. We took about 4.5 hours including a stop for lunch. It was a great entertaining way to see the city and the kids loved taking the pictures so I would recommend for a creative way to see Siena!

      Great fun
      We enjoyed this experience. Our 6 year old, loved the idea of finding the animals and taking pictures. It took us a lot longer than 2:30 to get to see all 17 animals. It also took us to parts of Siena that we would not have seen.

      Makes site seeing more fun
      The polaroid experience made seeing the sites of Sienna even more fun. I liked the clues and a few things to discover that were not very well known. For instance, we had to find etchings on the side of the wall. Then we have a fun book afterwards with the history and our pictures.

      Great Way to See All of Siena
      My family really enjoyed our tour of Siena. It brought us all over the city, even to parts we never would have visited. The picture element of the tour was very fun and left us with a great souvenir of our trip.

      Amazing Family Experience
      My family LOVED this experience!!! I have older kids (15 and 11) and we’ve been to Siena a few times but this is the first time we found and saw all the contrada! We loved walking around town at our own pace and collect photos of all the statues, signs, etc. TRULY a unique experience that we’ll always remember. Plus my kids still love picking out their favorite contrada.

      DO NOT MISS
      NOT TO BE MISSED!!!! Polaroad will give you a fantastic way to see Siena, and the NOT touristy parts. With the guidebook and map you will traverse the city on tiny streets you otherwise probably would not find and truly find treasures hiding in plain sight. Giuila is fantastic and you will be inspired by her love and enthusiasm for her home town. If possible, pay extra to have her accompany you on the tour. She is brilliantly informed, fun to be with and very warm.

      Fantastic concept! Loved it!
      Before we visited Siena, a colleague highly recommended your shop and tours. The tour was fantastic! This way we had the chance to visit the more quiet places in Siena. Our boys loved it and walked around proudly with the camera on their chest. It would be great if you would also start this concept in other cities! We loved it!

      An amazing birthday party! 10 delighted 10 year olds
      I can highly recommend Polaroad as a different way of discovering a city, for both occasional visitors and residents. We had a wonderful children's craft workshop there as the kids created their albums and a lovely memento of the experience... very educational on all levels, especially for digital natives.

      Secrets of Siena Let Slip!
      I cannot recommend these tours, and a short visit to this quaint little store so centrally located, enough :) We did the Siena Treasure Hunt, which is a children's version of the top 10 tour, and it was an absolute delight! We got to witness parts of the city which are both popular, and yet have secrets of their own which one gets to discover during the PolaTour. It was an exhilarating experience being in Siena during the Palio, which is a spectacle in itself, but to get to see nooks and corners of the city while walking, and learning about the history, culture and traditions of this incredible city was a very pleasurable experience. The team give you a bag with a polaroid camera, a guidebook, a map and some stickers to attach your photographs to the guidebook (all of which you get to keep, except the camera of course :)). The graphics on both the guidebook and the map are very artistic and brilliant! While some of the questions in the guidebook quizzes are a little harder than others, there is enough material to keep everybody challenged and stimulated! Don't forget to wear comfortable walking shoes, and carry a hat and sunglasses on a hot day, because this tour will take you around the breadth of the city centre! The best part of the tour are the little polaroid photographs you can take to capture your memories, even if sometimes some of them don't turn out that well ;) The moment when the photograph is printing from the camera is so intense, as you wait to find out how the photo turned out :) It definitely makes you more prudent in photographing when you can only use a certain number of photographs, and in some ways that is the highlight of the tour, saving those precious moments that will make you remember your trip and all that you saw and experienced! All-in-all, I would totally recommend this tour to anybody who has a few hours in Siena and would like to spend them wisely!

      Amazing and unconventional tour to get to know Siena
      Normally my friends and I never take tours. We prefer to explore the city ourselves. We stumbled upon this shop by excitant and took Polaroid tour and it was the best decision ever! Totally worse it. Siena is a very interesting city and this tour is like a treasure hunt! Super interesting and entertaining content plus memories for life with instant pictures! Highly highly recommended :)

    Sono tornato recentemente a Siena dopo diversi anni. Essendoci stato in passato, stavolta ero in cerca di qualcosa di nuovo da scoprire. Con Polaroad ci sono riuscito 😍 in questo negozio in pieno centro, ho avuto modo di acquistare un'esperienza molto interessante, ovvero un tour da svolgere in autonomia alla scoperta di luoghi curiosi e poco conosciuti della città. Il tutto accompagnato da una polaroid a noleggio per immortalare i momenti più divertenti del percorso. Io e la mia amica ci siamo davvero divertiti. Abbiamo scelto il percorso "bimbi", che in realtà è assolutamente divertente anche per adulti perché prevede alcuni quiz cui rispondere direttamente nelle varie delle 10 tappe previste. Se volete passare una giornata diversa e scoprire cose che non sapete di un borgo affascinante come Siena.... vi consiglio di passare per Polaroad. 🤣🤣😋

    Era la nostra prima volta a Siena e abbiamo deciso di fare il tour non avendo deciso in anticipo un itinerario preciso da seguire. Consigliatissimo!
    Il tour e la guida ti permettono di vedere la città e di scoprire tantissimi aneddoti interessanti sulla storia di Siena e delle sue contrade. A differenza di un tour tradizionale con guida, la guida Polaroad permette di essere indipendente e di visitare le diverse tappe al ritmo che si preferisce, con calma e con la libertà' di fermarsi per una pausa o di prolungare il tour nel giorno successivo. L'idea poi delle fotografie istantanee e' molto originale, noi ci siamo divertiti tantissimo a scegliere cosa fotografare con la nostra polaroid :)
    Assolutamente da fare se si cerca un modo originale di visitare Siena, noi siamo rimasti molto soddisfatti :D

    Nel mondo fluido attuale finalmente riscopriamo i piaceri del "click" della macchina fotografica, dello sviluppo della pellicola.
    A fare da cornice il magnifico centro storico di Siena e le sue "perle" più o meno nascoste.
    Da rifare, assolutamente.

    Come rendere la visita ad una città già di suo spettacolare ancora più entusiasmante e coinvolgente anche per i più piccoli?
    Provate il Polatour!!!

    Camminando per Siena ci siamo imbattuti nel negozio polaroad e ci ha catturato. Le commesse sono state gentilissime e ci hanno spiegato questa esperienza nuova per esplorare la città di Siena creando ricordi istantanei. L’abbiamo provata e ce ne siamo innamorati, da provare!

    Il giro delle 17 fontanine mi è piaciuto tantissimo! È piuttosto lungo, per farlo con calma serve mezza giornata. La macchina fotografica ha funzionato bene, semplice da usare ed è molto divertente preparare l'album, anche per me che sono già grande! La mappa è ben fatta, impossibile perdersi. La guida dà anche l'indirizzo delle fontanine su Google Maps, in caso di emergenza. Alcune piazzette di contrada sono fuori mano rispetto al centro più turistico e regalano degli scorci incantevoli. Preparatevi a continue salute e discese, Siena è così. Se vi piace esplorare le stradine delle città d'arte, non potete saltare questo tour!
