Siena's Hidden Treasures
"Siena has many world famous monuments but it also hides treasures less visited by tourists, explains Serena Bianciardi, director of the Hotel Athena. The must-sees include the National Picture Gallery, which conserves elegant paintings by the Sienese School from the 13th to the 18th centuries. It also houses the State Archive and its permanent exhibition the "Tavolette di Biccherna", which are wooden boards depicting religious and civil scenes and portraits that were used to cover the accounting books of the city's financial administrators from 1258 to 1682. The city also has intriguing medieval underground tunnels, called the "Bottini di Siena", which were carved into the bedrock to create a water supply".
A Traditional Tuscan Recipe
The hotel's restaurant specialises in traditional Tuscan cuisine. The chef offers this recipe for "Pappa al Pomodoro", one of Tuscany's most famous dishes. Ingredients: peeled fresh tomatoes, garlic, basil, Tuscan bread and salt. Preparation: place all the ingredients in a pot and let simmer for about 30 minutes until the bread has become smooth like porridge. The tricky part is to achieve a dish that is neither too dry nor too wet. Dress with chilli pepper and Tuscan extra-virgin olive oil and serve warm.
All the Comforts…Including Parking!
The hotel has all the expected modern comforts and a private car park, which solves the major problem of were to park in the city centre and allows guests to use their own car for day trips to the many charming villages and castles that dot the province of Siena.
The Hotel Athena is also an excellent venue for business meetings and conferences in Siena. It offers a naturally lit meeting room that seats up to 80 people.
