Charming Studio Apartment with great views for 2 people in the historic city of Siena, located in the central pedestrian area and just a few steps from "Piazza del Campo", where every year the famous horserace “Il Palio” takes place. It is in Via Duprè, in the medieval district of the “Onda” Contrada, and during the Palio weeks, the street is very picturesque, all decorated with white and blue flags. This apartment is on the first floor of an ancient building and has 2 windows looking out onto the countryside to the south of Siena.

Private access to the apartment is from the Via Duprè, up a flight of stairs to a landing with three doors. The private entrance on the 1st floor (no stair lift) is into a bright and large open space room. There is a luminous and comfortable dining room with huge table and amazing countryside views that also space over the rooftops of the old town. The kitchen occupies the wall on one side and is complete with oven, large fridge with freezer, dishwasher and washing/drying machine, besides the usual kitchen robots including microwave oven, toaster, mixer and American coffee machine. Through the dining area is the living room with king size double sofa bed, and a reading and writing corner with TV. A door in the living room opens into the complete bathroom with shower stall.

It is well equipped (air conditioning, wifi, TV, baby cot and central heating) and it has been recently restored. It has high, beamed ceilings, and the interiors are beautifully and elegantly furnished with the walls hand-decorated by a local artist. During the winter, central gas heating is charged at 50 Euros per week and there is a 30 Euro final cleaning fee. Apart from the paid parking, not too far away at the Porta Tufi is a public free parking area.

The area is safe and quiet, and all the most important touristic attractions can be easily reached on foot: within a few minutes walk are the famous Piazza del Campo, the Town Hall Tower (Torre del Mangia), the Piazza del Mercato with the “Tartarugone”, the Synagogue, the Cathedral, the main art museums, the Accademia Chigiana (where classical music concerts take place during the year), the Theaters (Rinnovati and I Rozzi) and the main shopping streets. Everything you might want: grocery stores, restaurants, bars, artisan shops are within easy walking distance in our typical characteristic neighborhood.

Siena, in the heart of Tuscany, is a great place to use as a base for exploring the surrounding areas. There are very efficient local bus lines connecting to all the major historic cities nearby, such as San Gimignano, Montalcino, Pienza, San Quirico d'Orcia and Asciano, just to name a few! The main Tuscan art cities such as Florence, Pisa, Volterra as well as the Chianti Wine Region are within easy access by car or public transportation. And in about 1 hour’s drive you can reach the wonderful seaside of the Tuscan archipelago and the historic Talamone in the Maremma Grossetana that was the harbor of Siena in the past.
If you have the chance to visit Siena in the Summer, remember that on the 2nd of July and on the 16th of August the special Palio horse race is held. The Palio is a historical tradition strictly connected with the origin of the Contradas of Siena (districts/guilds into which the town is divided). Piazza del Campo is used for the horse race and the whole square is amazingly transformed for the pre race trials and for the race itself.

This traditional popular festivity lasts four days: from June 29 to July 2 and from August 13 to 16 and the evening before the races, people eat outside, as each contrada (within its confines) holds a sumptuous banquet to "rehearse" their surefire victory celebration (Cena della Prova Generale). The apartment is in the Contrada called “ONDA” (Wave); and its logo and coat of arms is a swimming dolphin wearing a crown, and its colours are white and blue.
