Description:

The Palio is not just a horse race between the 17 Contrade, it's a festival that lives in the hearts of souls of the people of Siena. To appreciate it takes more than one afternoon watching horses circle a track.. For those who want to include the history and pageantry of this famous event, we offer daily tour with tickets for the Palio or the Contrada dinner that night before.
Only 10 Contrade are in each race - the 7 that do not run in the race are automatically entered for the following year; 3 Contrade will be selected at random 1 month prior to the race.
