here is the last revised schedule for SIENA (we hope). please download + review.  note that the FIRENZE (florence) TRIP has been moved to tues 10 aug, as expected.  the palio remains MONDAY 16 aug 10 + the review remains WEDNESDAY 18 aug 10.  during the palio weekend, we STRONGLY urge you to limit your travel plans to the provincia di siena. there is much to see, as the thousands who flock here every year can attest.

a reminder: you are free to wander 19/23 aug 10 when the return flight from rome departs. however, do NOT plan to leave wednesday night after the review!  note further that you are responsible for getting yourselves to the airport in rome on time!

finally, please confirm your departure date from the residenza porrione with me BEFORE 18 aug.  be aware that there are check out procedures you must follow before you can leave siena.
