ARRIVING TO SIENA BY TRAIN
Because the train staion is located outside the city centre you shall have to take a taxi (outside the station) to get to the hotel (approx. 15 min.). Because the city of Siena is not on any of the main national train tracks, you might want to consider taking buses from both Rome (3 hours) and Florence (1 hour, the fast one “Rapida”), avoiding train changes and saving time.
ARRIVING TO SIENA BY BUS
Buses from other cities (Rome and Florence) stop at the train station an then in the city centre in the square Piazza Gramsci. From here you can either walk through the town (15-20 min.) towards the Cathedral, whereby the hotel is, or take a taxi in the nearby Piazza Matteotti square.
ARRIVING TO SIENA BY CAR
Our hotel has a free private parking available for our guests, who can easily arrive in the historic center of Siena, and leave the car without additional costs.
The most convenient way to go around the city centre is the ring road (tangenziale) which connects the main roads coming to Siena from Florence, Grosseto and Rome. Along the ring road “tangenziale” the exit for our part of town is named “Siena Ovest”, from which you should follow signs for Porta San Marco and Duomo, besides “Palazzo Ravizza”.
Entering the city walls from the gate Porta San Marco, you’ll find signs that lead you strait to the hotel in a few minutes.
