The Palio of Siena celebrated by artists, poets, writers, takes place twice a year, on 2nd of July and on 16th of August. It is not only a horse race but a secular celebration during which the deepest traditions of the city and its Contrade (quarters) renovate with authentic passion, an unique and incredible emotion.

Apartment was very modern and nice - was very helpful to have a washer and dryer in the apartment to use during our stay. Close walk to bus and taxi stations. Very close walk to weekly Wednesday market in Siena. Amedeo was flexible in meeting us at the apartment when we arrived. Our only issue was the bed in the bedroom was very uncomfortable and could be replaced.
We had a lovely time staying at the red apt. We enjoyed doing our own cooking in the well equipped kitchen and there were was great grocery shopping nearby. The apt was quiet, very clean and close to charming restaurants and cafes. Hosts were very accommodating and welcoming. Would stay there again with no hesitation.
It was a wonderful trip! The appartment is very close to the heart of Siena. It was a nice time! Thanks a lot
Accoglienza perfetta il proprietario è stato molto disponibile. Siena poi è magnofica e la posizione della casa ti permette di viverla appieno.
Amedeo was very friendly and helpful and was waiting at the apartment when we arrived. The apartment was very clean, comfortable and tastefully done. It was exactly the way it was shown on the internet. It is very close to the city center, a five minute walk, which makes for a good location! Since the apartment is very close to the center it is in the ZTL zone but there is parking within half a mile of the apartment. Overall a great choice!
My husband and I spent July Palio week in the Red Apartment and we had a wonderful time. Amedeo came to meet us when we got lost driving into Siena and helped us with our luggage and showed us where to park. The apartment is very clean, well decorated and well-equipped, including a washer/dryer and air conditioning. It is in a quiet spot, but a short walk from everything--grocery store, shopping ,sightseeing and eating!
The Palio festivities were a real highlight and we were perfectly located to participate in everything we wanted.
I highly recommend the Red Apartment to anyone visiting Siena. Grazie Amedeo.
We (a Swiss family of 4, including 2 little kids) spent the Easter 2014 days at the red apartment and had a wonderful time. Amedeo was very helpful in every regard. The apartment was very clean, spacious and we liked the furniture and design very much. Great location to explore Siena by foot. Free parking lots are a bit further away (5 min walk) but Amedeo arranged everything for us to unload our bags next to the house.
Absolutly recommendable! Next time, we would love to try the sailing excursion with a private skipper.

Sono Amedeo e gestisco una società in Toscana. Sono una persona socievole, amo viaggiare e conoscere viaggiatori.
La mia societa, Sienahomeandsailing- Tuscany sail, offre appartamenti vacanze nel centro di Siena ed organizza charter a vela con skipper. La nostra barca Free Will è ormeggiata sulla costa toscana, Marina di Scarlino, dove salpa per crociere anche brevi lungo il Mar Tirreno e per periodi più lunghi verso la Sardegna e la Corsica. Abbiamo inaugurato da poco un B&B nei pressi Rapolano Terme, Antico Granaione Residenza d'Epoca.
