Recently, we spent 5 nights at the B&B Gli Archi. Sylvia & her staff hosted us at this special Tuscan gem situated just outside the city center. We chose Gli Archi because we were renting a car in Sienna & needed parking that provided secure overnight parking. Upon arrival, Silvia who speaks excellent English, oriented us about how to use the nearby bus, provided a written schedule & bus tickets were available from her, & a good map identifies close-by restaurants and shopping. We stayed in the apartment that gave us flexibility to eat in if we wanted. The first night we picked up local food specialties at the nearby Coop market & tried the family-made red wine for an excellent “eat in” meal. The views from the B&B are the picturesque hill sides around Sienna. The historic center of the city was easily accessible. We were able to easily get to the main auto routes around the city for trips to surrounding wine areas. The breakfast buffet is excellent with various expresso coffees freshly made-to-order-we had cafe latte & cappuccino each morning. There are fresh baked goods, several kinds of local meats, hard boiled eggs, & cereal available on the breakfast buffet. We would stay here again & will recommend to others. Thank you!
