The Fiorini family were most kind and gracious. Dad Giovanni came to meet us at the station on our arrival which was over and above the call of duty really. And his son Niccolo, although we didn't meet, stayed in attentive touch via text making sure we had all the information we needed for a really nice stay. And it was a lovely stay. Siena is a most beautiful city and the apartment is right on the doorstep, two steps away from the escalator taking you up into the heart of the old town, with little effort. We felt safe in the streets even late at night and safe in the apartment and the bedroom was quiet and looked out on the walls of Siena and the church of San Francisco above. You could hear the bells ringing which was lovely. There is a handy restaurant next door if you don't fancy a walk in the evening and a car park over the road if you bring a car- Giovanni lent us his reduced rate parking card which was very kind. If you go travelling out of town Chianti area beautiful but don't miss south of Siena - Montalcino and the wine growing area around was spectacular. Food at the Consorzio Agrario shop in town was lovely - stand up Pizza charged by weight, very reasonable price. They do a lovely lunch and a guided tour of the town on Mondays - tickets from the Tourist office in Duomo square. It was a lovely experience - highly recommended and we made new friends.
Thanks to all the family for their hospitality. We would return in a heartbeat
