Palio di Siena

The charm of tradition

Palio di Siena

Siena and Il Palio are indivisible and are a must for lovers of these traditions.
The famous race is run in Piazza del Campo, twice year: on 2nd July at the Festa della Madonna di Provenzano and the 16th August at hte Festa della Madonna Assunta in Cielo.

The Palio is more than a horse race, all the inhabitants of the city participating at event where there is the whole history of Siena's republic. The districts, chosen by lot, compete during the horse race, but the best part is the historical walk, a parade in historical clothing with several characters and extras to representing  the ancient  Siena's Republic.
