Holiday in Siena: location

Villa Corsanello is to be reached through a white road beautifully framed by secular cypress es and winding among the Crete Senesi (clay hilly landscape typical of the south-west area of Siena ). At only 2 km distance, the nearest village endowed with services, supermarkets, restaurants and pizzerias is Ville di Corsano, lying on the boundary between the woodland of Val di Merse and the Crete Senesi, just amid a region reminding of its Etruscan origins.
Particularly amazing are the ruins of the Etruscan settlement Poggio Civitate and the famous antiquarium, both close to Murlo, only 6 km away.
After only 15 km, travelling across the picturesque Crete landscape, you reach Siena , the Italian city with the highest living standards par excellence. Siena, international place of culture, boasts a 750 years old University and also prestigious Cultural Institutions such as the Accademia Musicale Chigiana, the Università per Stranieri, the Accademia dei Fisiocritici and the one of Intronati, where important conferences and congresses are held.
In Siena every single stone has remained unchanged throughout the centuries and the atmosphere is felt as unique because its people have preserved their fathers' traditions, above all those related to Palio, the most famous local happening. In the ramparts of the imposing Fortezza Medicea is based the Enoteca Italiana, an exposition with more than thousand accurately sorted wine labels, not only of Tuscan origin.
