The Grand Hotel Continental – Starhotels Collection is located 70km (around 1 hour's drive) from Florence Peretola airport, and around 15 minutes on foot from Siena train station.
By car, if you're arriving from the north, you come first to Florence (if you are on the A1 motorway, take the "Firenze Impruneta" exit) and then follow the signs for Siena (start of the 4-lane "Firenze-Siena" motorway, close to the A1 "Firenze Certosa" exit). Drive along the motorway heading towards Siena and take the "Siena Ovest-Porta San Marco" exit; at the stop sign, turn right towards Siena, drive straight on at the roundabout and follow the signs for "Centro" and "Stadio" (the Grand Hotel Continental is located in the historical centre of the city).
If you are arriving from the South, take the A1 motorway heading towards Florence, exit at Valdichiana and at the stop sign turn right, then follow the signs for Siena. As you approach the city, following the signs for the ring-road ("tangenziale") that leads to Florence, continue along this road and take the "Siena Ovest-Porta San Marco" exit; at the stop sign turn left towards Siena, drive straight on at the roundabout and follow the signs for "Centro" and "Stadio" (the Grand Hotel Continental is located in the historical centre of the city).
At this point, it is advisable to use a satellite navigation device. Input "Viale Curtatone 16" or "Piazza Matteotti 1". From here, head towards the main road (access is limited to authorised vehicles only – as a guest of the hotel, your vehicle is authorised), passing the newsstand on your right, and carry on until you reach the small square called Piazza Salimbeni (with a statue in the centre) where you can stop the car briefly to drop off your luggage. The Grand Hotel Continental is located a few yards beyond the square, on your right.
ATTENTION: Guests with reservations are authorized to the ZTL -limited traffic area only through the access of Piazza Matteotti under photocell control. The use of any other entrance is subject to a ticket. Please contact hotel for detailed directions.
