Siena is a gorgeous city in the Tuscan region of Italy, rich with tradition, food and majestic landscapes and architecture. We spent an amazing two days and one night at I Terzi di Siena which is a beautiful place to really absorb the allure of Siena. I Terzi is conveniently located near Piazza di Campo (Campo Square), which is the center of town. A cool makeshift horse race is held in the Campo once a year. I Terzi is located in one of the tallest and oldest buildings in Siena and offers its guests breathtaking views of the Sienese rooftops, Cathedral and magnificent sunsets.
We had the pleasure of viewing a glorious sunset from the terrace while drinking wine and hanging out with a couple from Australia and another from Germany. From the terrace, one can admire the Torre del Mangia (Mangia Tower), the Siena Cathedral, the Basilica Cateriniana San Domenico (Church of San Domenico) or just gaze off and lose yourself in one of the best views in all of Siena.
The rooms are all recently renovated and furnished quite pleasantly. We shared bathroom in the hall with another room but we never had an issue with availability. It’s like a fancy hostel for grown ups. .
I Terzi di Siena also has a fully equipped kitchen, living room and a free wi-fi connection in every room. It’s very easy to feel at home here.
We had a spectacular time at I Terzi di Siena and can definitely recommend it to almost all travelers. Due to the nature of this historic building, it does not have an elevator (lift). So we caution that if you have difficulty traversing up five flights of stairs, then this is not the spot for you. Most people can make it up just fine. They do offer assistance with luggage, but make sure to let them know in advance so they are around to assist you. Their reception is only open during certain times of the day, so plan ahead. That said, if you do not mind a little work out, this is a very comfortable, centrally located place to stay with literal heavenly views that will make it well worth it.
