Gli Angeli Bed and Breakfast in Sienna, Italy
Today let's venture to Sienna, Italy located in the center of Italy's Tuscan region, between Chianti and Maremm and just south of Florence. This beautiful midieval city offers bed and breakfast visitors wonderful cuisine, beautiful scenery, historical sites and more. Area attractions include exploring Florence, Pienza, San Gimignano, Monteriggioni, Montalcino, Arezzo, and San Galgano. Bed and breakfasts range from historical buildings inside the city center to farmstays in the beautiful Siena countryside.
Consider staying at Angeli Bed and Breakfast, a villa close to the center of Siena. This accommodation is small and family-run offering guests a warm welcome and anonymity if desired. In fact, guests receive their own keys and can access their rooms independently, without having to pass through the owners' living space.
The bed and breakfast is located on the ancient Via Cassia, a road rich in history, which has been traversed by simple pilgrims and famous personages on their way to Rome. While here follow the footsteps of antiquity and visit the province south of Siena with its Crete Senesi chalk hills, Montalcino, the home of Brunello wine, the beautiful Abbey of Sant'Antimo famous for hosting Gregorian chants, Bagno Vignoni with its main square in the form of a thermal pool, and the zone of the Val d'Orcia, a UNESCO world heritage site. Continuing south, you come to Mount Amiata, with its chestnut woods. Many of these destinations are served by regional buses that stop just in front of Angeli.
The proximity of Siena's ring connector road (just 1 km), the cities of Arezzo, Grosseto and Florence are also easy to reach, as is the entire province of Siena, with San Gimignano and Chianti to the north towards Florence, Pienza, Montepulciano and Chianciano to the east towards Arezzo, San Galgano to the west towards Grosseto.
Breakfast, provided on request, is served in the salon in front of a large fireplace, or in your room, depending on your preference.
