Siena rentals - quality accommodations in a thriving medieval city
Siena is a city in Tuscany filled with history, local culture, delicious
Italian food, music, and a world-famous horse race!
Your Siena rental
will open a doorway for you to live out your
Italian passions as you take a walk amongst the ancient pedestrian streets. Like some
other Tuscan hill towns, Siena was originally settled by the Etruscans beginning
in 900 BC, but its large size and the flavorful history the city has endured
since that time make it a uniquely intriguing vacation destination.
Sienaâ€™s university was founded in 1240, and today it is still one of Italyâ€™s
most important universities, drawing students from around the world. Your Siena
rental allows you to discover the city at your own pace; spend part of a day at
the Palazzo Pubblico and the magnificent Torre del Mangia tower that reaches
endlessly up into the sky. Both of these architectural treats are located in
the Piazza del Campo, which is the site of the ancient horse race, Il Palio,
that has excited crowds for centuries every July 2 and August 16.
You must make a stop at the Duomo, begun in the 12th century, and originally
intended to be the largest cathedral in existence. This beautiful church with
black and white decor features frescos and a library with books and manuscripts
from medieval times inside its enormous doors. By spending time in a
, you will come to cherish the reverence of the patron
saints of the nearby towns, and Sienaâ€™s Saint Catherine is no exception. The
Sanctuary of Santa Caterina incorporates the old house in which she dwelled, and
even possesses the Crucifix from which she received her stigmata.
While religious devotion is overtly displayed in many churches, streets, and
paintings in Siena, the local people also love to have a good time through music
and delicious Italian cuisine. Jazz music can be heard throughout the brick
houses, and you may stumble upon students from the Siena Jazz School engaging in
a spontaneous jam session in one of the piazzas.
