Trip Info

The Palio is a famous horse race held twice a year (on 2nd July and 16th August) in Piazza del Campo. You will live all the drama and excitement of the four days of the Palio. On the eve of the Palio, the “Prova Generale,” the second-last trial, is followed by a festive dinner. The next day, the most exciting events start in the afternoon when the horses are blessed. After a magnificent parade in Renaissance costumes, three frenzied laps of the Piazza will decide the winner. The citizens of the winning Contrada then acclaim the horse and the jockey as heroes and will proudly celebrate all year long. Our agency is glad to offer packages that capture the true essence of the Palio, a tailor-made experience that will let you take home to “The heart of Siena.”

We look forward to guiding you!
