I really wanted to see this. Catherine of Siena was a very impressive woman, especially for her time. I hoped to learn more about her. However, the house has been enveloped by more modern structures, and the rooms are unrecognizeable as medieval rooms. This is...More

Siena's saint's home has been adorned with two chapels, decorated with art. Her story is inspiring, but this site bears little resemblance to a home of weavers and wool workers.

It's a bit of a walk to the Casa di Santa Caterina, from the Athena Hotel, but there are plenty of cafes on the way and lots to see, like the different signs of the contradas.
