Hotels in Siena: here are the hotels of the Siena Inns group!
Hotels in the historic center of Siena
Booking a hotel in the historic center of Siena is a choice that is made above all to have the possibility of visiting the city comfortably on foot.
By staying in a central hotel, you can reach the main city sights such as Piazza del Campo, the Torre del Mangia, the Duomo, the Santa Maria della Scala complex and other museum structures in just a few minutes, without using your car or public transport.
In the evening, moreover, having booked a structure in the heart of the city offers the possibility of accessing restaurants, clubs, pubs and being able to even afford an extra glass because it won’t be necessary to drive later.
At this point, however, it’s worth specifying that central position should not be understood only as the historical area which includes the Duomo and Piazza del Campo and which is considered a World Heritage Site by Unesco, but also the areas around Porta Camollia and Porta Romana, as well as the spaces in which the Medici Fortress and the Giardini della Lizza are located.
To make practical examples, the important city arteries such as the Viale Camillo Benso di Cavour and the Viale Don Giovanni Minzoni can be considered central streets also because from there it’s possible to arrive in front of the Torre del Mangia in just 15/20 minutes on foot.
