How to reach Borgo Argenina

We are centrally located in Chianti, 20 minutes from Siena and one hour away from Firenze. The famous towns of Cortona, San Gimigniano and the wine regions of Montalcino and Montepulciano – home of the exquisite Brunello and Nobile wines – are just a short drive away.

BY CAR

We suggest renting a car, because it’s the best way to explore our beautiful countryside. Driving here is very easy – you needn’t worry about traffic like in the big cities. Primary rental companies such as AVIS and HERTZ are located near the train station in Siena (20 minutes drive from Borgo Argenina).

TOURS:

We can provide along with a driver a private tour guide who happens to be my lovely daughter Fiorenza who is a recognized and licensed tour guide for Siena and its province. She also works for Roberto Bechi who is Rick Steve’s number one choice. You may also consider booking a joinable minivan countryside tour with Tours by Roberto (www.toursbyroberto.com) which we highly recommend!
