What you should know about this apartment

Amenities and special features of this apartment

Close to Piazza del Campo and in front of Palazzo Chigi Saracini, the historical seat of the Accademia Chigiana, is this noble apartment located inside Palazzo Cinotti. The building is protected by the ministry of cultural heritage and dates back to the 16th century. Through a large courtyard and a wrought iron gate by arch. Fantastici, after two flights of very well maintained stairs you reach the apartment. The entrance door leads to a comfortable hallway. Immediately on the right, we find the kitchen overlooking the internal courtyard and the Facciatone of the Cathedral. Continuing we enter a spacious and bright double bedroom and a bathroom with window. Diametrically opposite to the kitchen there is a big living room overlooking Palazzo Chigi Saracini and the dining room. The notes of the violins and the piano that come from the Accademia Chigiana sometimes offer a romantic soundtrack on warm summer evenings. Crossing the corridor and leaving a windowed closet on the right, we first reach a single bedroom, and finally the Master bedroom with en suite bathroom. Both rooms overlook Via di Città and the Chigiana. In the master bedroom, we cannot help but notice a painting in the keystone. The fresco, recently recovered, represents Io, the woman loved by Jupiter, transformed into a heifer to save her from the wrath of his wife Juno, and guarded by Argos. Some historians attribute the fresco to Baldassarre Peruzzi and therefore to the late 1400s, while others to Giorgio di Giovanni, thus dating its painting to the mid-1500s. The apartment is perfect both as an income investment and as a residential property. It is completely renovated with taste and refinement. The current owner in fact wanted to harmonize the ancient style, enhancing the frescoes and the beautiful terracotta flooring, with the modern, giving the house a sober elegant look.

Siena: Location and surroundings of this property

The apartment is located in one of the most representative streets of Siena, in Via di Città. A few steps from Piazza del Campo and just a few meters before the Piccolomini palace, known as the Papesse palace. The apartment is on the 2nd floor of Palazzo Cinotti in front of Palazzo Chigi Saracini, the historical seat of the Chigiana Academy. The street is the most elegant and solemn of the entire historic centre and was formerly called Via Galgaria due to the presence of shoemakers and leather workers. It leads us to the top of one of the three hills on which Siena develops, the one that hosted the settlement of the early medieval city. The street climbs a curve with a gentle slope and breathtaking views, such as that of the Piazza del Campo seen from the Costarella dei Barbieri or that of the Torre del Mangia seen from the Chiasso del Bargello. On each side of the street we find shops and restaurants and the street is one of the most popular tourist destinations as it is one of the three streets that divides the urban system, the so-called "triventum", ancient name of the main intersection of the city, where the Via Francigena passed, and where the Croce del Travaglio marks the intersection of Banchi di Sotto, Banchi di Sopra and Via di Città.
