Siena by bike

The coming of spring leads us to think of a great bike ride. Tuscany is, certainly, the region most able to enchant with its amazing views and landscapes: so which is the best way to visit it if not by bike? Right for this reason today we want to give you some tips about how you can move in the historical centre of Siena by bike.


From April 5th Siena will be more tolerant towards the bikes: they could in fact circulate freely inside the controlled traffic zone of the historical centre of Siena, following the directions of travel with reduced speed, to a crawl (10km/h) to avoid any danger to pedestrian and to cyclists, which will have to remind that are travelling on a vehicle subject to traffic legislation. The only off-limits areas for two-wheelers will be: the upper ring of Piazza del Campo and  the central part of Piazza del Campo.


The centre of Siena

Just in case you don’t own a personal bike, Siena offers a very useful service called SiPedala BIKE SHARING: this is an alternative to the car for the urban transport. A new way of public transport where the citizen is free from time constraints. This service is really advantageous because there are stations for charging, collecting and returning the electric bikes, distributed in the strategic points of the city: in this way SiPedala allows you to return the bike to a station different from the one you picked it up from. The cost is different depending on the time of use: usually the first half-hour is free, instead to discover the rest of the fares you can visit the website


For the long walks lovers it would be ideal use the E-BIKE along the tuscan landscapes such as Poggibonsi, Colle Val d’Elsa but also the Eroica‘s path. The electric bikes are a vehicle increasingly widespread which allows to the “less trained” to travel long distance. The e-bike can be easily booked and withdrawn at your hotel or at previously agreed points, equipped with chargers and a kit for small repairs. There’s also the possibility to rent a GPS satellite.


Just in case you don’t want to use one of these services, the Hotel Borgo Grondaie is the right place for you because our structure has 5 bikes for adults and 2 bikes for kids that we can give you upon request without any extra cost.

Right for this reason the Borgo Grondaie is the ideal place where to stay in occasion of a trip in Siena where you will find the free bikes service. Our Hotel is far from the historical centre just 1,5km, so will be very easy reach the centre through via Mazzini and via Garibaldi by bike.
