My fiance and I had our hearts set on a wedding in Siena, a place we have been to a number of times and loved. However, the only date we can do is 11th August and it is just before the Palio so there will be scaffolding up in the square and sand on the floor.
We were hoping to have an informal affair - inviting friends along (rather than paying for them, unfortunately we don't have a large budget!) - and paying for a meal in a restaurant on the Campo during the evening. Our idea was to invite people out for the week before (or as much / little as they wanted, most people would come for a day or 2 so taking over an agritorismo might not be possible) to spend some tiome together before the wedding. We thought in Siena there would be enough for people to see and do without bumping into each other all over the place. We would only be inviting about 15 other people - can anyone recommend any other places we could consider which would make a magical wedding location? I thought of Pienza and Certaldo but I am not sure if they are too small.
Any 'expert' advice would be gratefully received!
