For how to arrive by car:
We are located in the historical center of Siena. Siena is a Unesco world heritage site and walled town with a still existing city wall of nearby 7 km and several City gates to enter.
The City of Siena is not allowing to park within the walled town and the traffic restricted area (only residents).
You can drive to the hotel through the traffic restricted area, but following some traffic rules:
The ONLY entrance/access to get to us is from Porta Romana (biggest city gate, many signs to there – please do NOT enter other City gates).
The Porta Romana is in the southern part of the City in Via Enea Piccolomini / Via Roma (between the City gates Porta Pispini and Porta Tufi).
Porta Romana: latitude 43° 18′ 47.81″ N, longitude 11° 20′ 22.02″ E, or: 43.313281°, 11.33945°.
The Exit on the highway Florence-Siena is called SIENA SUD (coming from north/Florence/Pisa/Bologna/San Gimignano), it is the 4th exit after Siena Nord, Acquacalda, Siena Ovest – then: Siena SUD)
Coming from Rome, Perugia, Assisi please follow the highway Bettole-Siena in direction to Florence and take also the exit Siena SUD.
From there follow the (many) signs to Porta Romana. Once arrived there, please use our map to get to us (google maps and gps are NOT working well in Siena Center).
