It turns out that my plan to stay in Siena on an Italian trip coincides with il Palio dates ( July 1-3).
Which, as I quickly discovered, can be blessing and a curse, since there are virtually no accommodations to be had inside the city walls.
So my questions are
a) if I stay outside the city walls - how easy would it be to get to Piazza del Campo by 4 pm?
b)is it possible to drive there or will the parking lots be impossible to get into?
c)since there are no accommodations close by, and difficult to get in there from the outside, should I just change my Siena dates?
