Discovering The Palio of Siena
Experience the Siena tradition (July 1st-2nd-3rd or August 15th-16th-17th)
Anyone who is lucky enough to be in Siena on the day of the Palio is guaranteed a unique and truly exciting experience, with the chance to share the great passion the people of Siena have for this event which is so much more than just a horse race. The best and only way to truly enjoy the Palio, as for our traditions, is to experience it from the inside, planning and taking part in the life of the “contradas”, even better if you have a member of a “contrada” as your guide.
