It was a typical beautiful sunny Italian summer day in Siena...people walking about shopping and chatting...kids playing soccer with each other...birds chirping...lots of birds... Here we are admiring the fantastic city hall building, walking hand in hand, loving Siena, when SMACK! I was hit! Man down! Right on the forehead and I never even saw it …

International Gothic Stylin'

Now thatās more like it.

Francesco was right - Siena was the perfect palliative after the heat, crowding and chaos of Florence. While Florence is flat, straddling the river Arno, Siena is hilly, and that makes all the difference. The narrow, meandering, cobbled streets were merely confusing in Florence. But in Siena, the added dimension …

World's Best Gelato anyone?

On a day trip from Florence, ISA brought us to a little Tuscan town called San Gimignano. I suggest not trying to pronounce it unless you hear someone else (preferably Italian) say it first. It is a quaint little town that has amazing view of the outstanding Tuscan countryside. Apparently it is also home to the award winning gelato shop. Of course I had to test this out and see whether it was actually possible if it was that good, it was. ...

Which neighborhood do you belong to?

Siena was a beautiful Mediaeval town in Tuscany. We got a tour of a church, which was very creepy because it had the patron saints skull covered in wax, and her finger. Then we walked around and learned the history of the different neighborhoods in the city and about the twice annual horse race that occurred there. We were in the Rhino ...

... spent our evening in Pienza relaxing until our dinner at 8:30. We ate at the restaurant attached to the hotel downstairs. The dinner was delicious and 4 out of 5 of us ordered the American staple, cheeseburgers.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Piccolo Hotel Etruria Siena

    Do: dine at La Buca di Porsenna right next door. Don't: stay here

    from

    We stayed at the Hotel Etruria in May, 2005. We arrived, accidently, on the evening the Palio order was chosen. Sleepy Siena it was not.

    City, Hotel, Palio, all top notch

    from

    We spent a week (end of June-beginning of July) in Siena. This was our second stay at the Piccolo Hotel Etruria, and won't be our last. The staff was excellent while we were there, and even better in helping us make arrangements before hand. We started about a year before the July 2005 Palio arranaging rooms and trying to get tickets for the events. The staff got us tickets, they were terrific. They were about 200 Euros per seat, and worth every penny. The resonable rates at the hotel made the tickets seem very affordable. The room was large and comfortable, and very clean. Get a room on the street side. It is noisy due to the festivities happening in the streets all night, but that is why we came. You have a perfect location to the il Campo and all of the pageantry. We missed the Palio by 2 days last visit, and vowed we would return to see the entire event. You need to be there 2 or 3 days before and the same after to really get it all. The wonderful staff made it a memorable experience.

    Well Done

    from

    Based on reviews in Travel Advisor, we spent 5 nights here in August, 2005. Just steps from the famous Campo (square) in Siena, the location couldn't have been better. The room was small but spotless and comfortable. The front desk staff were accommodating and very helpful. Excellent value - we would definitely stay here again.

    Super-Clean Hotel

    from

    Great location, a two-minute walk to Il Campo. For those of you who really value peace and quiet, this may not be the best location, as it can get pretty loud. We were there during some sort of a soccer championship victory and people were parading the streets, screaming and honking motorcycle horns. We actually appreciated the ruckus and festive atmosphere. =)

    We had a double room with private bath. The bathroom was very, very clean. Everything was sparkling white, even the grout! We went during peak season, so the price was 80 euros (breakfast is an extra 5 euros per person, so we opted to get pastries from the local bakery Nannini instead). A good deal for a great place. Highly recommended.

    Can't beat the location

    from

    One block off the Campo! Who cares that it's not the Ritz. Nice family-run place. Everything clean & ship-shape. We stayed 3 nights November, 2004 at 80 euros per night/double room. (They seem to have paid for good advertising; the not-too-frequent directional signs in medieval Siena often have arrows to this hotel.)

    Great little hotel

    from

    We very much enjoyed out stay at this little hotel. The room was comfortable, the staff were extremely pleasant and helpful, and the location is fantastic, very close to the Campo. You just go out the front door, through a short passageway, and there you are. The intervening buildings block the night-time noise from the Campo, but you have immediate access. Also, the restaurant next door (La Buca di Porsenna) is outstanding (one of our best meals in Italy), and you get a 10% discount as a guest at the hotel.

    Avoid the annexe

    from

    The hotel itself was full when we tried to book a day ahead, but the receptionist offered us a room "100 metres down the street"; occupied, so we couldn't see it at the time.

    We took it anyway: 60 euros, no breakfast. It was a few hundred metres away and grim: faced onto a small dark central courtyard. There was a padlocked folding screen along the whole of one wall. The whole block smelled very strongly of gas - when we reported this, we were told it was normal for the wind direction...

    Not recommended: if the hotel itself is full, then go somewhere else. If you _do_ end up here, the internet cafe across the street does a good breakfast.

    Great little place....!

    from

    this little place was GREAT- its location could not be better, as it is found METRES away from piazza del campo, where "Il Pallio" takes place.

    The hotel is absolutely spotless and clean and the people who run the hotel are extremely kind and helpful. DEFINITELY would return, encourage everyone to go as well. It is probably the best one can get with its price.

    Nice place, excellent price

    from

    Chose this hotel pretty much on price, and was impresed. About two minutes walk from Piazza Il Campo, this is about as central as it's possible to get without being on the square itself. The room was spotless, as was the rest of the hotel, and the staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast is a E5 optional extra, tried it it once, wouldn't recommend it, but I prefer heading out for expresso and sticky buns anyway, in the Italian style. There's a fantastic cafe about 5 mins away - can't remember the name, but it's in Lonely Planet - Tuscany. If I have criticism, it's that the place was TOO slick and spotless, I prefer slightly run down and with more character, but this won't appeal to everyone, and when I return to Siena, this hotel will be the first I'll look at. TV in the room as well, with BBC World Service. oooooo TV

    Good Experience

    from

    We spent 8 nights at the Piccolo in October of 2003. We had selected the hotel because it was centrally located, reportedly clean and inexpensive $75 per night. We would be spending minimal time in the room, as we had planned daily driving side trips to Florence, Pi8sa, Cortona, etc.
