Hotel Focus – Palazzo Ravizza

While attending our Palio Siena package break, you need a good hotel within the city walls, which is within walking distance of the main sites. One of our favourite hotels in Siena is Palazzo Ravizza, which is only 600 metres from the Piazza del Campo – the location of the Palio Siena Horse Race.

This converted palace was a family residence in the 19th century until the current aristocratic owners decided to convert the palazzo into a pensione in the 1920’s. The palazzo can boast a wealth of historians, musicians, writers and art collectors as some of their guests, one of which donated a Steinway piano in the salon.

The rooms are characterful and have the original furnishings maintained from the 1920’s. Some of the rooms face the garden creating a relaxing atmosphere.

As well as being within the castle walls, the hotel has a garden offering quiet areas where guests can read, relax with an aperitif or entertain friends. There is also a lemon house, bar, wine cellar and bookshop, the last of which is Siena’s only English bookshop. The bookshop stocks books on current trends along with Italian translations.

With incredible views overlooking Siena, this palazzo has something for everyone. When you have ticked all of these off your list you still have your Palio Siena package to entertain you! For those wanting to travel further afield and visit the nearby towns, Palazzo Ravizza has free parking for housing your car overnight.

This hotel is sure to be the icing on the cake when satisfying your wanderlust or special occasion on your Palio Siena package trip.
