The apartment is in a historical building, Palazzo Saracini, dating back to the XIII Century. It is one of the buildings that surround the famous Piazza del Campo, in the best possible position to appreciate this middle-age jewel: right in front of the Palazzo Comunale with the Torre del Mangia.
Imagine yourself dining at candlelight watching the moon hiding behind the Torre del Mangia, while the songs of Siena are heard in the background. You will feel as having travelled back in time by 700 years!

It has been said that Italy has 40% of all the artistic sites of the world, and that Tuscany has 40% of all the artistic sites of Italy. So, to visit very quickly only the main art cities of Tuscany, it will take you at least a month.
And if you are a lover of the countryside, a full week spent in the Chianti area, with wine-tasting sessions or cooking schools will seem too short.
Siena is a middle ages jewel in the hills of the southern Chianti. Inside the old walls almost noting is changed since Centuries. Churches, buildings, towers, and museums with the largest collections of paintings from the "Siena School" (Duccio di Buoninsegna, i Lorenzetti, Simone Martini, ...) make you feel away in space and in time.
The Palio di Siena (July 2nd and Aug 16th) is something you may probably have seen on TV, but (ask a friend who was there) is nothing compared with the reality.
