Right in the heart of Siena, in the Cantrada del Nicchio (the Shell), we can offer this beautiful apartment located on the second floor of an historical building. The building was a convent in the past, with the arches on the ground floor.

About 40 steps go around the court yard, leading to the entrance of the apartment.(Elevator is also available)

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.

The Tuscany region

The Siena region is one of the Chianti regions of central Tuscany. It stretches from the perfect walled town of Monteriggione and Castellina in Chianti in the north down to Montalcino, of Brunello fame, and Pienza in the south. One of the favourite areas is Le Crete, an area of rolling hills, punctuated by the cipress trees and roads winding over the horizon. There are just so many historical towns to visit, all beautifully preserved in their Renaissance glory. The province of Siena fulfills everyone's idea of the classic Italy.

Siena

Walking into the walled city of Siena through one of the great gates is like stepping back in time. Most cars are banned, so the people come out to walk about their town, making this a busy, thriving city. At the heart if the Campo, the main shell-shaped piazza, dominated by the ancient Palazzo Communale, where the Palio, the wild bareback horse race is run twice a year. This is not a spectacle for the tourists, but the flowering of a virulent rivalry between the various 'Contrade' of the town, dating back centuries.

There is so to see here, from the Duomo and the Baptistery, to the Torre di Mangia and the Palazzo Communale, with works by Simone Martini, Lorenzetti and other artists of the high renaissance.
