This magnificent city is an ensemble of medieval palaces, cathedrals and towers, surrounded by fortified walls; and it is here that the historic Palio di Siena takes place each summer. The Palio is a traditional horse race from the Middle Ages and continues to be set in a medieval atmosphere in Piazza del Campo. The event is preceded by a procession of locals in historic costume. Siena also offers an incredible fine dining experience. Some of the most unforgettable restaurants to visit are Arnolfo and the Resort Hotel Castello di Casole.

The location of the villa is also closely accessible to the Chianti region, where one can delight in some of the most famous wines of Italy.
