Activities/Attractions: Siena may be the best-preserved medieval city in Italy, thanks to its conquest by Florence nearly 500 years ago. While the Florentines were busy launching the Renaissance, the Senese played the role of country cousins--and as a result, Siena (or at least the walled portion of the city) still looks much as it did in the Middle Ages.
Many tourists regard Siena as being worth a day trip from Florence or a half-day stopover on a tour of rural Tuscany. That's a mistake. You should allow at least two days to visit Siena's major churches and museums, plus another day simply to enjoy the unique atmosphere of this historic but lively university town.
Palazzo Masiis located within a few seconds walk to Piazza del Campo, the heart of Siena. It's surrounded with all the most famous Senese museums and monuments, and also with the magnificent masterpieces of art unique in the world, that only Siena possesses.
All around Palazzo Masi it is possible to visit famous shops, drink delicious wine in the best restaurants and visit wine-sellers in the historical centre, a strategic location to live and enjoy the Senese atmosphere.
"This is our third visit to Italy, the second to Siena and our first, but not last stay at Palazzo Masi! We are very pleased with our room: we sense a closer connection to the city of Siena and the people living here. The concert on "Il Campo" with Andrea Bocelli was unforgettable!
