My mom and I will be in Siena for 3-4 days for the Palio. We have a hotel about a block off the campo. I've read the more recent Palio posts but was wondering if anyone had any specific suggestions about the most fun way to experience it. We probably won't spring for the grandstand seats and really don't care if we can't see the race itself. We're more interested in the atmosphere and I'm sure we'll be able to catch one of the trials. We definitely want to see the parade, the blessing of the horses and do one of the neighborhood dinners. Would love to hear about your favorite vantage points, restaurant, contrade or any other tips learned from experience!
