The Grand Hotel is the only five-star hotel in Siena’s historic centre and boasts a rich and fascinating history. Built around 1501, it was once the preferred residence for Margherita of Savoy and a favourite destination of the intellectuals involved in the 19th Century Grand Tour.
The hotel opened its doors once again in 2002 after a thoughtful restoration and guests can expect lavish interiors of Renaissance architecture adorned with original frescoes, priceless antiques and an unrivalled service. A choice of guestrooms are all sumptuously decorated, providing a welcome retreat after a day exploring the streets of Siena. In the Sapordivino restaurant you’ll find gourmet cuisine based on classic Sienese dishes that have been refined by the skilful chef. A highlight, though is the wine cellar where you’ll find over 3,000 bottles at the base of a recently discovered Medieval tower. Tastings in this unique environment are available every day on request.
