In and about Siena


Art, crafts and natural wonders


The Grand Hotel Continental sits in the very heart of the historical centre of Siena, which has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, just steps from Piazza del Campo where twice a year the famous Palio races are held.  In front of the hotel sits the splendid Banca dei Paschi di Siena building, the world’s oldest bank, while the Duomo, one of the most beautiful Italian Romanesque-Gothic buildings in the world, is just around the corner.  If you feel like heading out into the countryside, the Chianti, Val d’Orcia and such lovely towns as Pienza, San Gimignano, Montepulciano and Volterra can all be easily reached and visited in a day.
