The medieval city of Siena lies on three hills which meet in the centre of the old town and accordingly, is divided into three districts/terzi (thirds): to the South the Terzo di Città (with Via di Città as its main street), to the North the Terzo di Camollia (main street Banchi di Sopra) and to the East the Terzo di San Martino (main street Banchi di Sotto).
Right in the heart of the Terzo di San Martino, we can offer this beautiful apartment located on the second floor of an historical building.
The building was a convent in the past, as indicated by the arches on the ground floor.
From the courtyard, about 40 steps (elevator also available) lead to the entrance of the apartment.
The apartment consists of a spacious living/dining room with sofa and satellite tv; a well equipped kitchen (oven, fridge/freezer, cooker, dishwasher, washing machine), a double bedroom, a twin bedroom, a single bedroom, one bathroom with shower and one bathroom with bath.
The apartment is bright and elegantly furnished mostly with antiques, although equipped with modern facilities. The apartment is a perfect base to explore the splendours of Siena, in fact nearly everything you may want to see is within walking distance and large centres of the city are pedestrian zones.
“Must-sees” include the Piazza del Campo, scene of the enthralling Palio horse race twice a year, which is about 300 mts away from the apartment. The central feature of the old town is the Piazza del Campo, a spacious scallop-shaped square dominate by the massive façade of the Palazzo Pubblico (Town Hall). The Cathedral, one of the finest churches in Italy, standing on the highest point of the town, is about 5 minutes walk away. A few steps away from the apartment, the Logge del Papa an elegant three arched loggia by Antonio Federighi. So called because it was commissioned by Pope Pius II (Enea Silvio Piccolomini) in honour of his family. Several restaurants and shops within walking distance.
