Palio di Siena - Siena

The Palio horse race is a colorful, bareback horse race staged around the dirt-packed Piazza del Campo, Siena's main square, that takes place every July 2 and August 16. The contrade (traditional neighborhoods) compete for the palio, or banner, dedicated to the Virgin Mary. The square is filled with costumed pageantry before the race, and massive feasts are set up on long outdoor tables that can stretch for blocks on the medieval side streets. A magical nostalgic festival, the city is packed with locals and visitors around the time of the Paleo races so it is always best to arrange a private viewing balcony well in advance. Speak to our Concierge for more details.
