Hotel Palazzo Ravizza

Hotel Palazzo Ravizza  Located in the historic center of Siena, this property has been managed by the same family since 1924 and it welcomes guests with the style and classic ambiance of a heritage hotel and at the same time with the atmosphere of an elegant and welcoming private home. Rooms are furnished in typical 20’s style and decorated with frescos on the walls and ceilings. Palazzo Ravizza has a private garden with countryside views and hosts the only English Bookstore in Siena.

Hotel Tornabuoni Beacci

Hotel Tornabuoni Beacci Located in two Renaissance palaces on one of Florence’s most elegant shopping streets, the Palazzo Minerbetti and the Palazzo Strozzi del Poeta are close to all the important monuments of the city. Featuring a rooftop garden with panoramic views of Florence, the hotel welcomes guests in its elegant rooms decorated with frescos and antique furniture. Typical of historical Italian palaces, each room is different in layout and size. The historic paintings, antique pieces from the 17th-19th centuries and elegant chandeliers in Murano glass are definitely part of the charm.

Il Chiostro di Pienza

Il Chiostro di Pienza Set in the heart of medieval Pienza, the 4-star Il Chiostro di Pienza is housed in a former 15th-century Franciscan convent. As you relax in your comfortable accommodations, you will find its central location enables you to explore this Renaissance city, so well-preserved and rich in history. Hotel amenities include a terraced garden offering sweeping views of the Orcia and Asso valleys, an outdoor swimming pool and a refined restaurant serving Tuscan specialties. Though its air-conditioned rooms vary in layout and décor, all feature cable/satellite television, a minibar, and private bath with shower and hair dryer. Complimentary WiFi is available in the lobby.

River Palace Hotel

River Palace Hotel Located in the heart of the city, a few steps from Piazza Del Popolo and the wonderful Santa Maria del Popolo Church (with paintings by Caravaggio), this charming property is intimate and refined. It features a very good restaurant called Caravaggio, a nice breakfast room, and friendly staff at bar and reception. VBT has reserved only superior rooms, larger than the otherwise very small standard bedrooms. It’s a great spot from which to discover the Eternal City. WiFi is free throughout and an Internet point is also available in the lobby.
