To make some examples, the Hotel Italia in Viale Camillo Benso di Cavour can be an excellent accomodation outside the limited traffic area and during the morning, to obtain the necessary energy before the race, the hotel offers a breakfast for champions!
The welcoming Garden Hotel in Via Custoza, however, may be the best solution for teams of athletes who need ample parking and for those who, after the race, want to reward themselves with some typical specialties of Siena combined with a good glass of wine.
