Palazzo Francesconi is a historical
palace that dates back to the early XVI century.
An ancient tradition attributes the sketch of this palace to the famous
architect Baldassarre Peruzzi, who in 1520 began the
construction , and he was obviously at the peak of his skills..
The palace, declared of particular historical interest from the office for
the cultural goods, occupies a prime spot inside the ancient walls, halfway
between the shell-shaped Campo and the Fortezza Medicea
(which offers a powerful combination to visitors: views across the
entire city and a municipal enoteca where wine tasting is encouraged from
noon to midnight).
Although it is only a few minutes'walk to the epicenter of the city, it is
across the street from the main depot for public buses which go to the many
small towns in the province, and from one of the rarest finds in
pedestrian-only Siena: a place to park while bags are loaded and unloaded.
The apartments within Francesconi Palace are furnished with
antiques, beamed ceilings, flooring in parquet and tiles handworked in
granite. Sheets are silk and upholstery is damask, linen or silk.
Rooms are spacious and inviting, modern kitchens have fridge, burners and
stove and bathrooms are efficient. There is no elevator.
