Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

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.

Siena & Chianti

Siena is a province in Tuscany that specialises in medieval cities with spectacular panoramas. Siena is also the name of the provincial capital city. Here, you can sip an espresso in Piazza del Campo, explore the monochrome Siena Catheral, or climb the 14th-century Torre del Mangia for 360-degree city views.

The province of Siena also encompasses the Chianti wine region. Not only does it produce some of the most famous wine in the world – it’s also a spectacular patchwork of rolling green hills and rustic villages. Join a wine tasting tour to learn more about the Chianti wine varieties, including Chianti Classico.
