The flat is an ideal base to discover Tuscany.
Siena is in the heart of Tuscany and enclosed by famous world pearls like the wonderful Chianti hills, the Val D'Orcia, the Maremma.
Being an old medieval town, Siena's historic centre was not designed for motor vehicles and therefore car traffic is restricted.
However if you're driving a car there are some big parkings within three to ten minutes walking distance from the apartment.
Free parkings are also available a bit further; from there a public shuttle bus will take you close to the apartment.
If you're travelling by bus or by train, you have the options to take a taxi (about 10 min ride), to walk (about 20 mins) or by public bus.
In any case, before your arrival, you'll be sent a brochure with all the details on how to get to the apartment and lots of useful information about the area.

The BEST place in Siena!
We felt very fortunate to have found Monica's lovely and large apartment. We were there for 3 nights, and it was the perfect place to stay while in Siena. Our train was really late, but she accommodated us, and met us at the apartment for the tour. This is, by far, the largest place we stayed during our one-month journey through France and Italy. It was a sanctuary for us, especially the outside deck, which overlooks the entire town. The apartment was very well furnished, clean, and comfortable. Thank you Monica!
Best place to stay in Siena
Great location, it is really city center, 2 minutes from good restaurants, shops and of course main places in Siena - Duomo and Campo piazza. It is very big and interesting apartment with a plenty of rooms and roof terrace. We were with 2 kids - they could not stop playing there. Monica is very nice and helpful, special thanks to her!
Spectaculars Siena views from all windows, comfortable beds and good kitchen with equipment with drinkable water filter. Parking was not a problem - we found a good free parking very close to city gate. It was really great time and if we will return to Sienna we would like to choose this apartment only!
On top of the world
This is an amazing property with views over Siena and the surrounding countryside. It is on the third floor, so best for people who are quite mobile. The apartment has everything you need - perhaps too much, in a way, since it has two dining areas. Might be better to create more space for relaxing. It is very well appointed and spotlessly clean for such a venerable building. As in many places in Italy, the WiFi seems to be rather slow. Just something to get used to. We were a little surprised to be asked to pay the full amount before we arrived, but Monica was unfailingly helpful in all respects, and, hopefully, the payment plan will sort itself out as the owners gain more experience. Would definitely recommend this for a stay in Siena.
Paul and Carol were perfect hosts and they took very good care of the apartment. We had just one minor problem since they left the keys inside the apartment the second day but luckily we were around with a spare copy to let them in again.
Unfortunately the payment scheme is decided by VRBO so we couldn't do anything but refine the pre-compiled schedule to help our guests (the payment was actually split in 3 phases instead of 2 like usual, and last payment was scheduled the same day of arrival). Every other holiday booking site requests the payment when the booking is made or before arrival.
Soak in the magical atmosphere of a unique city.
At the very heart of Tuscany and surrounded by world-famous sites like Chianti, Val D’Orcia (Orcia valley) and Maremma, Siena is definitely one of the most interesting and magical Medieval cities to visit in Italy.
About the PALIO
It is the city’s most important event and it is part of the local people’s life for the whole year and since the day they were born.
It is a complex and fascinating tradition , so the best way to discover it and understand it is to stop by in the 4 days that introduce the Palio to get a closer look to how locals feel and behave and to the city itself, that is completely transformed.
The race takes places every year on 2nd July (Palio dedicated to Our Lady of Provenzano) and on 16th August (Palio dedicated to Our Lady of the Assumption).
Note: Local tourism tax adopted by the Local Council: € 2,50 per person per night, it is required to pay the tax to the manager who will isuue a receipt. (Exempt children under 12 years old)
