Apparently, Palazzo Ravizza mentioned above includes private parking. But private parking is not at the property itself.

And Il Casato B&B is near the Piazzo but just inside the Porta Tufi and there's a garage nearby for 20 Euros a day (and presumably a lot less for a couple of hours).

The parking at Palazzo Ravizza is just behind the hotel. You enter on the street behind, park your car, then walk up a small flight of stairs, through the garden and into the patio area. It couldn't be more convenient. annie

OK, changing plans.

Instead of 2-weeks plus, I'm thinking about 1-week (6 full days), flying in and out of PSA instead of FLR (about $350-400 difference for the same dates).

So obviously can't cover as many places but thinking of basing 3 nights in Pienza, Montepulciano or Citta della Pieve.

From there, cover a couple of towns in Southern Tuscany including Orvieto and Perugia/Assisi.

Any thoughts on these 3 towns?

I'd start a new thread with this new question.

For Siena, the Antica Residenza Cicogna B&B gets rave reviews on Trip Advisor. We've booked their Angel room for two nights this summer. Much less than the Palazzo Ravizza, but no parking. We'll plan to park outside of town and roll our bags to the B&B, which is right near Piazza del Campo.

We definitely wanted to be able to sit in the piazza at night to enjoy the beauty of Siena after all the daytrippers have departed.
