BATTISTERO - RESIDENZA D'EPOCA"
The Baptistery Siena The historic home "The Baptistery Siena”Is a period residence, located in a notified building in the heart of Siena, in Piazza del Battistero (Piazza San Giovanni for the toponymy of the city). It is the square chosen as the film set for many famous films, the latest being Letters to Juliet. It is in this square that we decided to give new life to an ancient palace, creating a historic home that immediately became part of the prestigious Michelin guide and of many other prestigious guides. The period residence expands in Palazzo Landi, with access from Piazza San Giovanni, enjoying an incomparable view both on the unfinished Baptistery of the city of Siena (in the rooms overlooking the Baptistery), but also on the Basilicas of San Domenico and Santa Caterina, as well as on the roofs of the city (some rooms have a terrace). Some rooms located just above the Arco di Diacceto, one of the most evocative places in the city, are also part of the historic residence Il Battistero. It is in this building that the famous architect Francesco di Giorgio Martini was born in the 400th century and Le Corbusier chose this place as accommodation for his 1907 stay in Siena. The charming location of the accommodation makes this period residence the ideal place to spend a pleasant Sienese stay in a residence rich in history and charm, without exceeding ostentatious luxury. The Piazza San Giovanni is indeed the one that from Piazza del Campo crosses the Via dei Pellegrini and leads to Piazza del Duomo, also reachable from Piazza San Giovanni through the historic marble staircase of 1451 where the legend tells that fell Santa Caterina, tempted by the devil . On the ground floor there is also a delicious wine shop, in which there is a careful selection of the best fine Tuscan wines which can also be tasted in a spectacular cellar below, with brick and tufa vaults, in which it is still possible to admire a medieval aqueduct, once connected to the Bottino del Santa Maria della Scala. Each room is characterized by its own particularity, some for a more modern style, others for a more traditional style, as well as sometimes more modern paintings. Other times there are original prints of the '600 and' 700 on the Palio of Siena and geographical maps of repertoire. Needless to say that all the rooms are equipped with all the most modern comforts, from anti-noise glass (even if the area is obviously limited to traffic) to air conditioning. A delicious one breakfast is prepared every morning with Organic products and strictly Tuscan.
