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!
