"Siena, the jewel of Tuscany, is one of the wonders of Italy. Thousands of visitors go every year to enjoy its art and beauty. But a visit to Siena and its surroundings is so much richer if it is organised with the help of someone born and bred in the city itself. I am one such person. I love my home town and want to help others enjoy it to the full. That is why I have set up “Bespoke Siena”. Surf this website and you will find out more about how to make your bespoke holiday truly memorable!"

Places To Stay

A week in Siena is a treat at any time of year. We have found for you places to stay which range from rustic charm to luxury villas in the spectacular Tuscan countryside to apartments overlooking Siena’s famous Piazza del Campo – perhaps the most beautiful square in Italy -  from which you can view the Palio horse race.  We have properties that fit any family or group size and to suit  most budgets.

Activities

With my custom-built holidays, you can choose what you want to do and when you want do do it. The activities can be put together in any order, with rest and relax days in-between, to create a memorable holiday that can be as long or as short as you like.

Palio

The Palio horse race is run twice a year in the magnificent Piazza del Campo, Siena’s main square, widely considered to be one of the most beautiful squares in the world. The race, which is run on the 2nd of July and the 16th of August each year,dates back to the 14th century. In past times the races were on buffalo-back, but horses have been used in the “modern” Palio since 1656.
