Reviews & Feedback

We thought we knew Siena well but learned and experienced so much more this time than on previous visits. We loved the Athena hotel (exceptionally good restaurant, very warm staff); our guide Paulo was excellent – well informed and helpful – the Palio itself was a unique experience - preparation, the trials and the Contrada dinner and procession and race on the day itself.

Sam and Andrew

What a great, great weekend we had in Sienna! Thanks to your staff and particularly to you for getting us to the Palio. I can't say it was a once in lifetime event because my hope is to return sooner than later. So please leave us on your emailing list. Enjoy your Summer.
