Shopping


Shopping in Siena is more classy


Located as it is in the centre of Siena, the Grand Hotel Continental is the ideal point from which to venture into the aromas, flavours and art of this extraordinary part of the world. Your excursion could begin, say, with a stop in one of the shops selling such famous wines as Brunello di Montalcino or the Nobile di Montepulciano, to be followed by a delicatessen that offers Pecorino di Pienza cheese, Cinta Senese prosciutto, truffles, extra-virgin olive oil and a wide range of delicious bakery products and sweets. Then there are the artisans to visit, workshops that still hand craft ceramics according to the old tradition, for example, before heading off to see the antiques markets where the distinct Tuscan accent of the sellers will charm you as much as their vintage wares do.
