Rubino is a well furnished 1 bedroom apartment located in the very heart of Siena, just a stones’ throw from the Piazza del Campo, the square where the Palio is held every year thoughout the summer. This beautiful residence sleeps up to 2 people.
The Residence Rubino is located on the 3rd floor of the historical residence called Palazzo Coli Bizzarrini, once known as Francesconi. Dating back to 1520, the project and the early stages of construction of this fabulous building can be traced back to one of the most famous architects of the Renaissance period, Baldassare Peruzzi, and the actual building work was... carried out by Pietro Cataneo. The palazzo was actually left "incomplete" in some parts and this has become one of the building’s main features and quite a charm for the people who choose to stay there. In 1906, the Coli Bizzarrini family bought the property and enhanced it’s original beauty thanks to a long and detailed restoration programme. This included restoring the magnificent frescoes and paintings which span a time frame of more than three centuries. The palace has been meticulously and beautifully restored by the present owners to create 8 luxury apartments. Each apartment allows guests to enjoy the magic atmosphere of Siena. The apartments overlook the rooftops and medieval narrow streets of this wonderful city which creates a charming blend of art and history that continuously fascinates the onlooker. The present owners have recreated the original atmosphere of a time long ago, but at the same time have brought new life to every room to provide a cosy and elegant home from home experience.
