August 15 opening hours and August 16 traffic on roads

We are thinking of driving from San Gimignano to explore Siena on August 15, but are worried that restaurants and sights in Siena will be close on the 15th - would anyone know if this is the case?

Also, we will be driving from San Gimignano to Sinalunga on August 16. On the map our route looks like we will pass Siena. With the Palio on August 16th, would anyone know if traffic on the roads would be bad near Siena and if we should take an alternative route to Sinalunga from San Gimiganano.

Any advice is much appreciated! Thanks!

Siena, Italy

if you go to visit Siena on August 15, you will see the city with the colors of the "Palio", there will be many people but it always manages to find quiet corners.

For 16 days you'll have no problem to go from San Gimignao to Sinalunga, you go from Siena along the highway and you will not find any traffic.

enjoy
