Explore your creativity and enjoy the Tuscan summer

August is a perfect month for getting inspired. Our in-house resident artist is on hand to help you create your own special memory of your stay, or why not book an art excursion in Florence or Siena. Or just sit back and relax at Borgo's own “Cinema Paradiso”, an open-air cinema showing classic Italian films and serving gourmet popcorn, snacks and signature cocktails.

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 on the 16th August. 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.

Traditonal Barrell Rolling - Montelpulciano

Bravio delle Botti

The Bravio delle Botti, which takes place on the last Sunday in August, is a barrel rolling race between the eight Contradas (divisions) of Montepulciano competing for a Palio, a painted cloth banner. The barrels (which weigh 80 kilos) have to be rolled up about 1800 meters along the main street of the town of Montepulciano to end in the Piazza Grande. Costume processions precede the competition and a street banquet follows.

Soirées Cinéma Al Fresco

La culture est au cœur même de la Toscane et pour refléter ceci, Borgo Santo Pietro a créé des soirées cinéma régulières qui se tiendront dans les splendides jardins de l'hôtel. Présentant des films classiques cultes en synergie avec Borgo, les soirées cinéma sont divertissantes, agréables et pourvues d'une certaine atmosphère. Alors pourquoi ne pas se détendre, alors que le soleil se couche, en regardant l'incroyable Audrey Hepburn dans “Roman Holiday” ou se rafraîchir avec un verre de prosecco en profitant d'une projection incontournable du grand classique de Federico Fellini “La Dolce Vita”.
