You're also in the best place to set off from for exploring Tuscany and its artistic masterpieces, its culinary delights, and its extraordinary, legendary wines. Castel Monastero and its splendid hotel spa, just 23 km from Siena, offer you the exciting chance to try something new every day.
Just a few minutes’ drive from your room and you can be in beguiling Siena watching the famous, thrilling Palio. You can be soaking up the medieval mood of San Gimignano and Monteriggioni and the mysterious charm of Sovana, Pitigliano and Volterra, the cradle of the Etruscan civilisation.
And you can meet the great masters of Italian painting, from Simone Martini to Ambrogio Lorenzetti and Piero della Francesca. And of course you can accept our invitation to visit the most famous wine cellars, where the great Super Tuscan vintages can be found, as you wind your way through the countryside from Montalcino to Castellina in Chianti.
We have already put together a selection of the most interesting itineraries for you, with the help of the most authoritative guides. We have already booked you a car with satellite navigation. We have already reserved places for you on tours of the most exclusive museums and historic buildings.
And we have reserved the most spectacular window for you looking out over the Piazza del Campo, so that you can have a front row seat for the Palio in Siena. And if that's not enough, on your return to Castel Monastero a wonderful massage awaits you, followed by dinner in one of our splendid restaurants "Contrada" and "La Cantina". It's the only way to see the real Tuscany.
