The space

This beautiful and sharply restored apartment is on the top floor of a historical palace of Siena, Palazzo Saracini, almost a thousand years old. The owners still live in the palace.
From November 20th 2011 the old elevator has been completely changed and now it's brand new and perfectly working.

The Palazzo Saracini main entrance opens in the heart of Siena, the “Via di Città” street. From there, all the tourist sites are at no more than five minutes walk: the Piazza Del Campo is just behind the palace, Palazzo Chigi-Saracini and the Duomo are almost around the corner, so you won't use car until you leave. During the days of the famous 'Palio' (the oldest horse race in the world, July 2nd and August 16th) it is possible to watch the race directly from a window of the family property or to have dinner in a 'contrada', to taste the unique atmosphere of these days. The morning of the Palio day is run the sixth trial, also called the 'Provaccia', preceded by the Mass for the jockeys, which is celebrated in the Piazza del Campo. In the afternoon, in the church of each contrada partecipating in the Palio, the benediction of the horse takes place. Following this, the 'Comparse' or contrada members dressed in the historical costumes of their contrada meet in the Prefettura (near the Cathedral) which is where the historical parade leaves from it to reach the Piazza del Campo. The historical parade is about 2 hours long. Is possible to see the historical parade from the streets and especially from the two windows of the apartment. Keep in mind that there are large crowds and the streets are very narrow, so it would be perfect to watch the parade directly from your apartment!
Even in the noisy nights of Palio you will be able to sleep well, even if you are in such a strategic point in the city. Special new technology window glasses in all rooms allow you to enjoy a quiet rest avoiding all the noise.

Great apartment in a fabulous location! Loved having the big windows opened and hearing all the ambient sounds but then closing at night for silence! Cafe right next door was wonderful. Cristina answers questions quickly and was easy to reach. One caution-there is an elevator but…

Great place to stay! The apartment was just around the corner from the main square. The A/C was great and the double glazed windows kept any street noise at bay. The housekeeper who let us in didn't show us around at all so we did need to contact Cristina about a couple things. S…

This location is fabulous! Very hard to beat. While you do not have a view of Il Campo, you are right around the corner. The place is very clean, well stocked and beautiful. We were there on some very hot days and two of us found that the air conditioning in one of the rooms was…
