We are going to stay at the Hilton property just outside Siena and have a rental car. I can't find solid answers to the following questions and wanted to throw them out to the group:
1) Flying into Rome and training up to Siena to rent car vs. renting car in Rome. Any advantages to either way?
2) From Siena, we plan on doing day trips to Florence, Pisa, and Assisi (plus wine visits in places like Chianti). Any of those towns difficult to get to by car and would train or tour be better than us driving? Will we find parking in towns of Florence, Pisa, and Assisi?
3) Finally, has anyone stayed at the Hilton there? (La Bagnaia Golf & Spa Resort Siena). I've read the reviews. Was specifically interested in whether they had a "club" for Hilton Honors members? Its "Curio Collection" on the Hilton website--whatever that means.
Thanks in advance. Any other recommendations welcomed. I'll post a review of the trip afterwards.
