Holiday in Tuscany Palio of Siena

The Palio of Siena: a horse race, moments of emotion, the life of the people of Siena.

"The most exciting 90 seconds in modern Europe" is how The Guardian described the Palio of Siena, the oldest and most spectacular horse race in the world.
Ten jockeys race 3 laps on the ring of tuff earth of Piazza del Campo: the celebrations of the winner district begin as soon as the horse crosses the finish line of Costarella and culminate with the delivery of the Palio.
The Palio is held twice a year, on July 2 and August 16: visit the city of Siena in the four days preceding the race is the best way to experience the charm of a centuries-old tradition and observe the life of the people of Siena.


When: July 2, Aug. 16
